Prolime Feed Lime

SA Lime & Gypsum’s feed lime is manufactured from finely crushed limestone - a natural source of calcium carbonate that typically exhibits a calcium content of between 33 and 35 percent. To optimise the benefit to livestock farmers, SA Lime & Gypsum’s feed lime is produced from limestone with a high purity level. Our feed lime is ground or crushed into consistently sized particles that vary in size according to the livestock diet it has been specifically designed for.

Benefits of Prolime Feed Lime

As calcium is not naturally produced by animals, feed lime is an essential food supplement suitable for all types of livestock. Animals require calcium to promote optimum growth, thereby enhancing productivity.  Feed lime is the most cost effective, simple and effective way of enhancing nutritional value and associated productivity.

The advantages of supplementing livestock feed with premium quality Prolime feed lime products are:

  • The promotion of milk production in dairy herds
  • The development of healthy bone growth in young animals
  • Improved heart function and nerve & muscle strength in livestock
  • Increased strength of egg shells in the poultry and ostrich industry
  • Poultry grit in the gizzard aids digestion and associated weight gain
