Feed grade magnesium oxide can improve animal physique and promote reproductive ability, and is a high-quality feed additive.

- produced in compliance with EU requirements for animal feed, and monitored by Agriculture Ministry of the Netherlands on behalf of the EU
Magnesium is an essential component in the diet of cattle and sheep, and its absence or deficiency leads to grass tetany and similar ailments. Magnesium oxide is generally added to animal feed as an important supplement, and must be essentially free of lead and heavy metal impurities.
Magnesium oxide has a very good role in promoting the absorption of livestock. Newborn chickens can only survive for a few days when fed a diet completely deficient in magnesium; cows with magnesium deficiency will first have a reduced appetite, slow movement and drowsiness, and as the condition worsens, cows will become stiff and wobbly in their gait, and they will become nervous and irritable, with obvious muscle tremors, and if the condition continues, they will become completely paralyzed and spastic. If left untreated, death can result.
Deficiency of magnesium ions in pig diets can cause a significant increase in piglet mortality. Magnesium deficiency can lead to stepping disease in pigs, which is manifested by repeatedly lifting the hind hooves as if they were stepping in place when the pig is standing. Therefore, feed with feed grade magnesium oxide can improve growth rate and quality, including PH value and color of pork, and reduce PSE pork.
In aquaculture, it can be used as oxygen releasing agent to increase dissolved oxygen in water, adjust the PH value of water, improve water quality, eliminate pathogenic bacteria, etc.
Feed Grade Magnesium Oxide used for cattle and sheep
Plant forage and animal feeds are often deficient in the required magnesium levels for healthy animal nutrition. A supplemental source of magnesium is required to maintain healthy levels within a ruminant’s diet. Feed Grade Magnesium Oxide offers a high concentration of magnesium as well as excellent biological availability.
Magnesium deficiency in cattle and sheep can lead to a condition called grass tetany. This condition is more common in the spring and fall when levels of magnesium in the natural forage are not adequate to maintain healthy levels within the animal. Feed supplements and mineral premixes are commonly used to provide the necessary levels of magnesium to the animals to prevent grass tetany. MgO is the most widely used source of magnesium for these applications.
