DIATOMACEOUS EARTH FOR LIVESTOCK
Feed ONLY Organic Freshwater FOOD GRADE DE To animals
Goats, chickens, horses, cows, pigs, sheep, rabbits and others will benefit from the use of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. As well as being beneficial to animal health our Diatomaceous Earth also acts as an anti-caking additive to help the feed ingredients from sticking together.
