Sodium bicarbonate plays an important role in animal nutrition today. Primarily used as a dairy cow feed supplement, the buffering capability of Natural Soda’s pure and natural feed grade sodium bicarbonate helps stabilize rumen pH by reducing acidic conditions. Our pure and natural sodium bicarbonate is trusted by dairymen and nutritionists due to its excellent buffering capabilities and superior palatability.
Sodium bicarbonate is also fed as a partial replacement for salt in poultry rations. Broiler Operations find that sodium bicarbonate provides an alternative source of sodium that assists with litter control by providing drier litter and a healthier living environment.
Sodium bicarbonate is used to promote healthy growing conditions while simultaneously limiting fungal and other unwanted growth. Maintaining proper soil pH is vital to producing healthy crops. Sodium bicarbonate is a naturally alkaline compound that helps maintain proper pH to maximize crop production.
NATURAL SODA’S SODIUM BICARBONATE PROVIDES A SAFE RELIABLE PRODUCT FOR ANIMAL NUTRITION AND AGRICULTURAL APPLICATIONS.
