Agriculture Grade Bentonite:

Poultry & Cattle Feed:
Our Feed Grade Bentonite is Natural & selected from affluent Mines of Kutch. This Bentonite is used as an animal feed supplement, as a palletizing aid in the production of feed pallets, as well as a flowability aid. It slows the passage of feed through the digestive system -- increasing uptake of nutrients. Bentonite has an affinity for some of the active elements of toxin products formed by bacteria in the digestive tract, and its application in feed allows more rapid weight again of livestock. In poultry Bentonite helps increase egg size and shell hardness.
