Diatoamaceous Earth and Livestock is a natural fit into your busy lifestyle and keeping a healthy, clean, organic environment for your animals.
Diatomaceous Earth is a must have for your barn, stalls and stock tanks. With so many uses, it’s a go-to for all of those on manure duty! Instead of lye or other products consider using Diatomaceous Earth such as our Livestock DE as an everyday product to keep stalls, calving sheds, coops, and kennels dry, insect free, and smelling fresh.
Diatomaceous Earth is a great bedding booster. Super absorbent, allowing bedding and shavings to stay dryer longer. Keeps harmful Ammonia odors at bay allowing for a sweet, fresh, clean air environment. Simply clean your stall, apply Livestock DE to major wet and soiling areas, and apply shavings or bedding over the top. Pick out as needed.
Diatoamaceous Earth is a great for your Manure Piles! Using Livestock DE in your bedding keeps manure piles from manure off-gassing and smelling, and also is natural fly and larvae control. Since manure piles can be a breeding and nursery incubator for many common barn flies, using Livestock DE to dust your piles will greatly reduce the smells but also the flies ability to reproduce by naturally dehydrating flies and larvae. It’s great for composting as well, and is a natural soil amendment.
Livestock DE and our Crawling Insect Killer can be used in the barn and topically on your horses, cattle, goats, dogs, cats and other animals to control ticks, fleas, lice, flies and other nuisance and disease carrying insects. We suggest a small puffer bottle like an old powder bottle or ketchup squeeze bottle to apply to the top line of your animal and then work into the hair, puff onto underbelly to naturally protect your animal from unwanted insects. We suggest also using Livestock DE in a burlap sack, and allowing larger animals such as cattle and horses to naturally rub themselves with diatomaceous earth.
Livestock DE and our Crawling Insect Killer can also be applied via a duster or spray slurry to your barn as year round insect control. Super effective, non-toxic, and with zero neurotoxins you can feel safe using it around your barn. Diatomaceous Earth is a fine dust so we recommend wearing a dust mask when using a duster to apply to your barn as you may want to protect yourself from breathing fine dust. As long as Diatomaceous Earth stays dry, and doesn’t get washed away it is permanent bug control for your barn.
Livestock DE can be used as a topical or free-choice feed additive. 2%/100lbs of feed ratio is common for most animals (see our feed chart under Livestock DE) Diatomaceous Earth is a naturally occurring mineral source that will greatly enhance your animals coat, hooves, plumage and structural health. The Silica in all of Diatomaceous Earth products helps rebuild connective tissues. Naturally occurring Minerals are more readily absorbed by the body and enhance the bodies natural function and operations. It is tasteless and odorless, and mixes easily into feed. Fed free choice, we recommend putting it in a dry, wind protected area that is easily accessible and let your livestock to naturally choose the amount they require.
Livestock DE is a must for chickens and all fowl! Mixing into feed produces thicker stronger eggshells, bright plummage and eyes. Mixing Livestock DE equal parts to sand and putting it in large tub to use as a natural feather dust bath is a must for your birds. Keeps lice and other infestations naturally at bay, and provides bright, beautiful, clean plummage!
Stock Tank Clear is a must have for clear, pure water, free of Slimy Green Tank scum! Stock Tank Clear, greatly reduced algae growth and adherence to tank walls, keeping your stock tank and automatic waterers clean, longer, and with out the added labor of scrubbing.
