Salt, or sodium chloride, is essential for animal life.
Salt contains roughly 40% sodium and 60% chloride. These two elements are the main cation and anion of extra cellular liquids. They ensure the intercellular exchange and the distribution of water throughout the organism. Salt combines the roles of sodium and chlorine. It acts as a nutrient and ensures temperature regulation in the body. It is also a condiment that improve animals appetite, acting on salivation, rumination and digestion. It regulates the consumption of water and dry matter, thus promoting growth and milk production.
Self-service form of salt blocks is a practical, simple and effective solution.
