Liquid Seaweed for Animals

Liquid Seaweed is ideal for dairy and beef cattle, horses, calves, sheep, goats, deer, pigs, poultry, dogs and cats.

Scientifically and historically, seaweed is one of nature’s most mineral-rich plants.

We make Liquid SEAWEED from Tasmanian bull kelp (Durvillea Potatorum), one of the world’s richest sources of micro-nutrients, alginic acid, essential amino acids, minerals and other complex organic compounds. We use a natural bacterial fermentation process to liquefy the kelp and maximise the seaweed’s high nutrient levels.

DIGESTIBILITY and palatability is increased because the seaweed plant is already broken down by enzymes in the cold liquefying process making all vitamins, minerals, amino acids and elements readily available to the animal’s digestive system therefore requiring less to achieve results.

ANIMAL have always sought out seaweeds for their health-giving nutrients, going so far as grazing these plants in salt water. Many minerals are required by the body in minute amounts, but it cannot function effectively without them. Seaweed has an extensive range of these elements and minerals in their most natural forms.

VARIYING REQUIREMENTS Sport horses, race horses, pregnant or lactating dairy cattle will have higher requirements for Liquid Seaweed than non-producing animals. Feeding levels are designed to allow an increase or reduction in the number of times per week you supplement your animals according to their immediate requirements.

Liquid SEAWEED can be administered orally, mixed with feed or in water.

In the dairy, Liquid Seaweed can be administered with feed or ideally through our innovative automatic dispensing system, which is already successfully installed in many Australian dairies. The system can automatically dispense any liquid additive directly into bails.

Dairy Cattle 30 ml daily for the 1st month, 20ml daily for the next month. Thereafter daily with feed or water as required to maintain desired results. This may vary according to quality of pasture and/or supplementary feed.

Calves 5 ml daily in milk

Beef Cattle 30 ml weekly Weaners 25ml x 4 a year

Thoroughbred Horses 10ml daily

All other Horses 10ml x 2 to 4 per week

Ponies 5ml x 1 to 2 per week

Goats, Liamas, Alpacas and Deer 10ml x 1 to 2 per week

Dogs (20kg and over) 1/2 tsp x 2 per week

Dogs (under 20 kg) 1/4 – 1/2 tsp x 1 to 2 per week

Cats 1/4 tsp x 1 to 2 per week

Poultry 1tsp to 11 of clean drinking water once per week

Sheep 20 ml x 5 a year

Pigs(intensive) 5ml daily
