FEED

Because we feed on both plants and animals, and both of those food sources feed on currently nutritionally deficient soil, livestock and poultry is also in need of trace mineral supplementation.

All cellular life can assimilate much more trace nutrition than what it is being fed. It simply needs to be available. Supplementing trace minerals to animals is common practice, and the mineral, or element in salt form, is generally tailored for the particular animal. With this current practice trace minerals added to animal feed come in the form of industrialized or synthetic salts. Rarely, if ever, are they oered as a natural mineral. Macro minerals, such as calcium carbonate, may come in natural form, but lack bioavailability and as such are

poorly assimilated by the animal. In addition to their lack of acceptable bioactivity, industrial salts are typically processed by treating rocks with acid. Through the assistance of microbes and enzymes plants can break down industrial salts, but animals, including humans, are not as equipped to break down these elements; the best means of absorbing minerals is through food— real food.

THE PRODUCT

AO Feed is our exclusive blend of concentrated organic major and minor trace minerals in a large 5 gallon industrial sized formula, ideal for supplementing to Livestock and Poultry. AO Feed provides essential nutritional support and can be safely consumed by all animal species.

HOW TO USE Simply add to drinking water at recommended 1% dilution rate.

WHAT ARE TRACE MINERALS?
TYPICAL RESULTS

AO Feed is not only an overwhelming economic benefit but also a socially conscious way to live our lives. It's time for change!

AO Feed fills this gap with 89 trace mineral elements and carbon compounds. It's easy to use and can be used in multiple applications; added to drinking water, added directly to feed, or used as a foliar or drench application to the grasses, legumes, oil seeds and ther animal feed.

Humans and animals alike share a common need for trace mineral supplementation. Because our bodies don't create these minerals on their own and absorbing sucient amounts can be hindered by a variety of factors, including a lack of bioavailability in the format in which they're ingested. Because AO Feed's trace minerals are naturally occurring and derived from ocean water they're already in a highly bioavailable state, making them more readily absorbed by both plants and animals. Applying it to food bearing crops, consumed by animals or people, is the best way to assimilate minerals into the body.

WHY ARE THEY SO IMPORTANT? Trace minerals provide the essential nutrients animals need for metabolic functions such as growth and development, immunity and reproduction. Even moderate deficiencies can adversely impact animal performance. The following chart provides information about the various functions of each trace mineral, as well as signs of a trace mineral deficiency.
