Facts about animals and salt
Animals have a highly developed appetite for sodium chloride.
Most plants provide insufficient sodium for animal feeding and may lack adequate chloride content, making salt supplementation a critical part of a nutritionally balanced diet for animals.
Trace mineral salt
In addition to salt, livestock, poultry and pets all require an adequate supply of trace minerals in their diets. Supplementation ensures that animals to do not become subject to the potential side effects of chronic under-consumption of trace minerals.
The intake of salt and trace minerals is species-specific. Trace minerals fed as a salt additive include iron oxide, copper, manganese, selenium, cobalt, iodine, zinc, and magnesium. Other items frequently added to salt include phosphorous, calcium, sulfur and vitamins such as A and D.
Trace mineral salt can be mixed with feed or fed free-choice to improve animal health and productivity, either in loose form or in compressed blocks.
