Calcium carbonate, as a dietary supplement and an antacid, plays an important role in animal nutrition, especially in the preparation of industrial livestock. A wide range of powders are used as a natural source of calcium as an ineffective carrier for other vitamins and other nutrients.
High-purity limestone, with low levels of acid-insoluble compounds, is an essential feed element for domestic livestock including cattle, sheep, and camels, and promotes bone growth. Adding calcium carbonate orally to their diet can lead to
1)stronger ossification and more milk, as well as increase
2) their resistance to disease
3) make it easier for them to digest food.
What will happen if these minerals are deficient in the diet of livestock?their ossification will be problematic and can increase the risk of various diseases in livestock.
