Dicalcium Phosphate



[Product Name]: White Dicalcium Phosphate Feed Grade Powder/Granule

[Chemical Formula]: CaHPO4.2H2O

[CAS]: 7789-77-7

[What is Dicalcium Phosphate?]:

Polifar produces a commercial feed-grade dicalcium phosphate additive that provides supplemental potassium and calcium, which are needed on a daily basis by animals for growth. Almost all animal feeds include supplemental nutritional additives, however the amounts used and composition of ingredients vary. Commercial feeds produced for chickens, ducks, geese, cattle, sheep, horses, dogs, cats and fish often require additional supplemental nutritional additives.

Q: How much dicalcium phosphate should normally be added to the animal feed?

A: Generally speaking, the amount is between 3 and 6%. An amount of 5% of the layer premix Dicalcium 16%-30%, adding to The precise amount depends on the starting material.

Q: How much feed-grade dicalcium phosphate should be added per feeding for pigs?

A: At a rate of .4% of feed additive, and assuming that it requires 50kg per day to feed 25 pigs twice at 1kg per feeding, then you should add 4 grams of dicalcium phosphate whenever they are fed.

Q: How much dicalcium phosphate should be added to rabbit feed?

A: For rabbit feed, calcium phosphate should be added at the rate of 0.8% to 1.5%.

Q: How much dicalcium phosphate should be added to cattle feed?

A: Dicalcium phosphate is generally added at the rate of 0.8% to 1.5% in cattle feed to satisfy nutritional phosphorus requirements. Due to a deficiency of calcium in commercial feeds, stone powder is generally added as a supplement.

[Product Description]:

  1. Dicalcium phosphate primarily provides phosphorus, calcium and other mineral nutrition for livestock and poultry compound feeds that is easy to digest and absorb;
  2. Dicalcium phosphate is also added to auxiliary (especially stratified and premixed) livestock feeds, as well as auxiliary poultry and aquatic animal feeds;
  3. Dicalcium phosphate accelerates the growth and development of livestock and poultry thereby shortening the fattening period by enabling animals to rapidly gain weight;
  4. Dicalcium phosphate improves rates of livestock and poultry reproduction and survival, as well as egg and milk production, along with provision of enhanced disease and cold resistance.
