Longcliffe is the UK's largest supplier of calcium carbonate used in the production of animal feed compounds and premixes.
Calcium carbonate plays an important role in animal nutrition as a dietary supplements and an antacid. Our wide range of dried powders and granules are used as a source of calcium and as an inert carrier for vitamins and nutrients. The quality of our limestone deposit is unsurpassed in this country containing nearly 40% elemental calcium - one of the highest levels available.
High purity limestone, with a low level of acid insoluble compounds, is an essential component of feeds for poultry, pigs and cattle. Poultry require grit in the gizzard to assist with digestion and strengthen shells for proper egg production. Calcium carbonate is also used as a fortifier in pet foods and supplements. Our granular limestone is also used by farmers for home-mixed feed rationing.
