MONO-DICALCIUM PHOSPHATE (MDCP)
USE: Mixed with other ingredients in animal feeds, MDCP is mainly designed for breeding purposes (cattle, poultry...). Used as the main source of Phosphorus and Calcium, MDCP strengthens the skeleton and accelerates the animal’s growth.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Components to stimulate the growth of cattle, sheep, poultry and goats.
SPECIFIC DESCRIPTION: Animal feed product line (livestock, poultry, etc.) is characterised by its nutritional components which are rich in phosphorus and calcium.
BENEFIT: This solution helps strengthen animal bone structure and accelerate growth.
While the requirements for Phosphorous for growing bones, milk production and lactation are well understood, what is less understood is the requirement for Phosphorous by rumen microbes to promote rumen fermentation and the difference sources of Phosphorous that can be utilised to effectively feed Phosphorous to cattle.
Phosphorous deficiency is prevalent across nearly all Australian soils and it is well understood that phosphorous supplementation, particularly in the wet & growing season can provide beneficial results as it is the first limiting nutrient during these periods. The major impact of phosphorous deficiency is a significant decrease in appetite, resulting in a reduction of pasture intake which in turns means less energy and protein intake. Phosphorous can be fed in several forms including loose licks, liquid supplements, blocks or via water supplementation.
- Phosphorus P: Min 21%N
- Calcium Ca: Min 14%
- Fluorine F: 0,18%
- Soluble Phosphorus in 2% Citric acid: Min 21%
