    Silicon-containing minerals as additives for
    farm animals

    Abstract. The article presents the results of scientific research on the use
    of silicon-containing minerals of the Ulyanovsk region deposit as feed
    additives. The materials prove that Silicon-containing additives based on
    natural zeolite and diatomite in the feeding of farm animals have a positive
    effect. The use of silicon-containing additives increases the growth
    processes in the body of young pigs, strengthens the strength of their bone
    tissue. Under the influence of application of additives, favorable conditions
    are created for the activity of cicatritial microflora. The use of application
    of additives for dairy cows helps to increase their productivity, improve the
    quality of milk composition, due to the intensive conversion of feed
    nutrients. The mechanism of Silicon-containing additives is due to the
    following processes: activation of enzymes of the gastrointestinal tract,
    increased absorption of nitrogen, vitamins and macro-and microelements;
    regulation of the composition and level of electrolytes, binding and
    excretion of toxins, harmful gases of heavy metals and radionuclides.
