The digestive system of ruminant animals is specially adapted to extract maximum nutrition from plants they have eaten. 

The digestive system involves housing a wide range of beneficial bacteria.  The role of the bacteria is to efficiently convert feed, ie pasture, into nutrients for milk, wool, or meat production.

In this article we talk about ways to increase the nutrient density of the plants your animals eat, and what successful regenerative farmers are applying on the land today, to cost effectively raise healthy livestock.

Nutrient Density from Growing Diversity

Growing a diversity of different plant families together produces (organic) nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium and other minerals and trace elements.

Multi-species cropping has also been shown to support and build a healthy soil microbiome, which can help eliminate the need for chemicals and nitrogen fertilisers. 

A healthy soil microbiome is essential for  improving plant nutrient density. By increasing the number of beneficial microorganisms in the soil, you can improve plant health and increase crop yields.

See ArticleOptimise Soil Health with Multi-Species Cover Crops’

Nutrient dense cropping

Livestock that are provided with nutrient dense pastures are less likely to experience health problems, and are overall calmer and happier animals. This not only improves animal welfare, but also reduces veterinary expenses.

Nutrient Density from Boosting Soil Biology

While growing a diversity of plants provides the perfect environment for beneficial organisms to thrive, Biological Fertiliser can fast-track results.

Biological Fertiliser Application

Biologically activated Fertiliser activates beneficial microbes in the soil. By increasing the number and diversity of microbes in the soil, you can create a more nutrient-rich environment for your plants. This, in turn, leads to higher levels of nutrients in the food or pasture you produce.

By using plant diversity and Biological inputs alone, you can ensure that your farm is able to grow nutrient dense produce or feed, providing you with a sustainable and fruitful farm for years to come.

Nutrient Density from Liquid Mineral Nutrition

Liquid Seaweed Supplements for Livestock, with 100% natural probiotics, can help improve your animals’ nutrient intake by improving their digestion.

These chelated liquid mineral supplements not only provide prebiotics, but deliver probiotics to support gut strength.  They enable a balance of healthy flora, to enhance nutrient uptake, and contribute to additional liquid hydration.

This results in healthier animals that require less feed, resulting in better feed conversion rates.

Liquid Seaweed Supplements for Livestock

Liquid Seaweed that contains no preservatives, fillers or additives, is an ideal supplement for livestock health and growth.
