Silicon-containing minerals as additives for
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.
