Cattle

What if Zeolite could change the way your cattle live & grow?

Natural & Organic

CMZ has a number of uses in livestock applications. CMZ is a natural mineral that is non toxic and safe for animals. Under the rules of the APVMA (Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority), CMZ is an allowable additive in animal feed and supplements with no permit required. We are registered with Australian Organics as an organic input. 

Zeolite can positively impact the way cattle live & grow

  • A large percentage of CMZ production goes into the cattle industry;
  • CMZ assists in the supplementation of mineral nutrition in cattle;
  • CMZ improves the safety of urea used in lick and blocks 
  • Better still CMZ provides positive benefits in other methods of delivery including greater protein (Nitrogen) conversion efficiency, reduced malodour and improved rumen functionality;
  • CMZ does not breakdown when ingested by ruminants or in soil, so the Zeolite passed out of the animal is able to slow release nutrients to plants and soil;
  • CMZ can be added into the rations of cattle in both feedlots and paddocks, encouraging improved cattle growth;
  • CMZ improves the growth rates of calves by increasing feed use efficiency;
  • CMZ controls volatile ammonia in the rumen;
  • CMZ provides additional protection for supplements containing urea;
  • CMZ may bind some microbial toxins for elimination;
  • CMZ may provide some protection from bloat and acidosis;
  • CMZ may provide protection from digestive upsets; &,
  • CMZ as a component of ZeoChar has been shown to reduce the greenhouse gas, methane. 

Feed Substitution Benefits

Studies here and in the USA have shown that addition of 2% zeolite maintains mass gain by cattle. There maybe significant economic benefit. 
There is a quietening effect on animals, this may contribute to meat quality at the abattoir with fewer dark cutters. This is also related to reduced energy usage and body mass reduction. 

CMZ in feed will lessen excreted Nitrogen thus reducing malodour of ruminants and their environment. This in turn reduces respiratory distress and results in solid and quicker drying manure pats.

Dairy Cow Specific Benefits

CMZ addition to feed rations may help to maintain milk production. If a cow’s milk production decreases, then 100g of CMZ into their feed usually returns milk production to the normal level usually within the day. CMZ helps to reduce other infections but not mastitis. Studies of Zeolite have observed reduction in severity and duration of diarrhoea and intestinal disturbances by the promotion of blood serum antibodies.
