Our minerals play a key role in a range of animal care applications, from technological feed additives in premixes to anti-caking agents, mycotoxin binders and bedding conditioners, promote healthy living conditions for farm animals.
Keeping animals well fed, safe and healthy
Improving animal welfare is one of our priorities. Healthy animals live longer, produce better yields and have a higher quality of life. Our natural minerals can be used to formulate animal care products, premixes, fillers and anticaking agents. They can also be used for digestive aids that help livestock and poultry stay healthy and digest their feed better.
In livestock production, our minerals are effective digestive aids, anticaking and dispersing agents for the production of animal feed and premixes. They are valuable allies for combatting aflatoxins. They improve the quality of animal bedding, reducing effluents and odor. Our mechanical insecticides are highly effective natural solutions for controlling pests.
All Imerys animal care products are registered and authorized to be sold as technological additives, and go through rigorous testing and quality control to ensure they meet global safety standards. We also offer affordable, antibiotic-free mineral solutions for fish farmers looking to mitigate disease and algae outbreaks.
Population growth, rising urbanization rates and climate change are all mega trends impacting how insect pests are evolving to develop insecticide resistance. Today, the world almost exclusively relies on chemical pesticides for controlling insects, a practice which has pushed natural selection towards resistance. Our mechanical insecticides are highly effective natural solutions for controlling pests. We have over 20 years of experience with EPA-registered natural mechanical insecticides. Our mechanical insecticides provide a non-chemical, physical mode of action for insect pest control offering alternative, complementary solutions to traditional chemical pesticides.
Our products cater to domestic animals, too, with a full range of pet litter products, from standard clumping grades to lightweight non-clumping litters, organic solutions based on wood pellets, wood flakes, and vegetable fiber, and of course products that work to neutralize odors.
There are so many ways to help enhance the welfare of animals, from pets to livestock and poultry. Get in touch to discuss how we can help keep your animals healthy, fit and well fed.
