Feed/Livestock

The unique properties of humic substances allows them to be a useful and multifaceted ingredient in animal feeds. Farmers and researches have been feeding and testing humic substances since the early 1930’s.

Containing both complex carbons and minerals, humic substances are added to animal feeds around the world as a trace mineral source, anti-caking agent, non-nutritive carrier, or pH adjuster. The HPTA is currently working with state and federal feed regulators to better understand these substances and how they can be used safely in animal feeds.
