Default Diatomaceous earth looking more and more promising

All livestock, Horses, Cows, Pigs, Sheep, Goats, Rabbits, Chickens and others will benefit from the use of Diatomaceous Earth. It is completely safe and nontoxic. Some of the benefits are; Control of fleas and ticks, stimulates basic metabolism, converts feed better, reduces odor and moisture in barns and stalls, results in better coat and hoof condition, keeps fly larvae from developing in manure, noticeably reducing the fly population, reduces annual vet bills, controls worms and internal parasites without chemicals, better egg production, stronger eggs, and reduces overall animal stress. Diatomaceous Earth can be mixed right in with the animals feed.
Cattle, Dairy Cows, & Hogs – 2% of dry feed ration
Horses – 1/2 to 1 cup in daily ration
Reduces overall animal stress
Helps stop feces, dirt, and rock eating
Reduces manure odor
Better feed conversion
Reduces moisture and pests in barns
A Natural Approach to Equine Parasite Control by Lisa Ross-Williams
Fly Control:
Used daily, DE helps eliminate the fly population. Sprinkle DE on livestock when flies are present. Dust barns, coops, after mucking, and dust top of manure/compost piles. When you feed it daily to all dogs, cats, fowl, and livestock it comes out in the manure of each animal and prevents flies from growing in the manures.
Farmers hang burlap bags full of diatomaceous earth for the cattle to rub against and keep themselves dusted, which eliminates flies, mites, and other pests that land on them.

“Results of feeding 5 ounces of D.E. to show horses for a period of one year. Healthier looking animals with a definite sheen to their coat, absence of internal parasites, better feed conversion, reductions in manure odor, fly control, cured scours in cases where other medications had failed and improved appetites in picky-eaters”
-Four Winds Stables, Robert D. Horkman, Orlando Florida.
“I take pride in the appearance and health of the horses under my care, which have won many national awards against stiff competition… I am grateful to have found Fossil Shell Flour … It stopped scours, noticeably reduced flies, increased appetites, better feed conversion, eliminated internal parasites and created a healthier appearance. I would definitely recommend this product to other horsemen”
- Leslie “Shorty” Thomas, L. Frank Roper Stables, Winter Park, FL.
“Feeding Diatomaceous Earth to my show and race horses, stallions, mares, foals and horses in training, we have seen improvements in their hair coat and their attitude. Flies and parasites are less of a problem”.
- Capital South Syndicate by Dan Miller, manager

The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of a low price is forgotten....
