Listing Detail Tabs

Ascophyllum Nodosum seaweed, (AKA) Norwegian Kelp, is a brown seaweed which grows along the North Atlantic shorelines of Canada and Europe. The seaweed is harvested off the cold, clean coast of Nova Scotia.

Modern intensive farming practices have resulted in soils with deficiencies that are reflected in the low nutritional content of grasses and grains grown on these soils, and in the health of animals raised and maintained on these crops. Lush and otherwise nutritious grasses may fail to supply the needs of animals because certain trace elements are missing. Animals have finely balanced needs for trace elements: too little produces deficiency symptoms, too much may be toxic.

Ascophyllum Nodosum seaweed has been used for centuries as a natural source feed supplement. Today, thanks to modern processing technology, the benefits of Ascophyllum Nodosum seaweed are available in cost-effective granular form which can be conveniently added into the regular feeding program.
