Seaweed is one of the most nutritional forms of plant life available. For this reason it is widely used by Organic Farmers, domestic pet owners, and exotic fish keepers everywhere.
Seaweed contains over 90 trace and micro elements and is a particularly rich source of Iodine.
Seaweed can be used as a feed supplement or as a fertilizer/soil conditioner applied to grassland, growing crops, and cultivated land.
Feeding Seaweed as a mineral supplement improves the animal’s ability to digest, therefore enabling it to make better use of available feeds. It is particularly recommended at times when the animal could become stressed. For example, a change of environment after winter housing or when turning out to grass.
Feeding Seaweed prior to serving, and during gestation, can result in an increase in fertility and condition of the animal. If feeding is continued into lactation, an improvement in quality of milk and the length of lactation, is not unusual.
Seaweed is also recognized as an excellent 'soil conditioner', improving soil structure and providing plant micro-nutrients.
Historically, coastal farmers would have collected seaweed from the sea shore, however, nowadays it is harvested mechanically, before being graded, dried, and then milled to specific particle sizes.
Dairy Direct offers a wide range of Seaweeds, available as a granule, flake or a powder, and whilst they are broadly similar, there are some variations between the different types. Further variations will occour according to the waters from which the seaweed is harvested. See Specifications for a comparison of the main types.
Some Seaweeds are certified Organic.
