Feed-grade magnesium oxide (calcined magnesite) 1000 kg
Magnesium oxide MgO is a qualified additive for animal feeds and premixes. Magnesium oxide is important in the diet of ruminants. The animals need it to grow and reproduce properly and to have the proper appetite. Magnesium ensures proper functioning of muscles and nerves of mammals. The demand for magnesium oxide grows during strenuous exercise.
Oxide deficiencies may cause for instance:
• Inhibited growth
• Lack of appetite
Due to its properties, magnesium plays an important role in metabolic processes. Magnesium oxide activates many enzymes, actively participates in the production of energy and regulates the flow of calcium to the cells of the heart muscle.
