Natra-Kelp Liquid Seaweed For Animals
Natra-Kelp Liquid Seaweed is a supplement for your animals, providing a wide range of vitamins, minerals, trace elements and amino acids. Made from sustainable Southern Tasmanian Bull Kelp (Durvillaea potatorum), it can be administered orally, mixed with food or in water. The bacterial fermentation process used to liquefy the kelp increases the digestibility and palatability of the liquid and maximises the nutrient content. Improvements in animal health can include increased resistance to internal parasites, improved condition of coat or feathers, and higher quality of products such as milk, eggs or meat. Recommended for dairy and beef cattle, horses, calves, sheep, goats, deer, pigs, poultry, dogs and cats. This kelp is not readily available in the retail market but is used by organic farmers internationally. Dosage rate information included on bottle. More information from the manufacturer
My experience with Natrakelp liquid seaweed has been twofold - with my working sheepdog stud 'Campaspe Working Dogs', and as a farm manager with commercial sheep and cattle. Initially I began using Natrakelp with my dogs and pups, with such great results that I then began experimenting with sheep.
The results with the dogs were a complete absence of fleas even in breeding and rearing conditions, and a vast reduction or elimination of worms (or the effects of worms). For over 10 years, and probably nearer 15, I have not treated a single dog for fleas, and only very occasionally have I treated dogs with chemical worm treatments. This includes pups. My pups are virtually never wormed in their entire life, and look shiny and healthy.
The dogs or pups I have had to treat for worms are those I have purchased from other people, which have not been fed with Natrakelp. I certainly do not claim that Natrakelp will instantly rid a sick dog of worms, but over time it certainly allows the animal to overcome them in the majority of cases (no doubt some sickly animals for genetic reasons or such like will not be able to be helped).
And most importantly, Natrakelp is improving the dog's overall health in all sorts of unseen ways, instead of being detrimental to it as is the case when toxic chemical treatments are applied.
After seeing the great and obvious benefits with the dogs, I then began using Natrakelp with sheep, to the point where I also eliminated all use of chemical worming of lambs and sheep. It is impossible to claim all the benefits are due to Natrakelp, as I also fed the livestock many other minerals which were also no doubt important, but I feel the Natrakelp plays a major role. When seaweed was available along with many other minerals in individual mineral, adlib feeding, so that the stock could choose exactly which minerals and how much to eat, seaweed was consumed more than any other mineral.
And the new trials showing improvements in feed conversion etc., from the addition of Natrakelp to the diet, are a great testimony to its benefits.
Personally, I believe that Natrakelp is a great aid in the breeding and rearing and production of any livestock, and it is a major part of my supplement program, and of my recommendations to my clients in my farm consulting business.
