carried out by the Republican Unitary Enterprise "Scientific and Research Center of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus on Animal Husbandry" showed high efficiency of Sapropel additives: as soon as they were introduced into the ration, there was an increase in milk yield, the average daily gain of cattle weight increased. This was also due to improved feed conversion.
It is no secret that soybean, rapeseed or sunflower meal is assimilated by only 50 percent. With the addition of Sapropel, protein digestibility reaches 70-75 percent.
After one month of research, it was proved that metabolic energy consumption per one kilogram of milk decreased by 7-12% and crude protein consumption - by 5-9%. At the same time, herd productivity increased by 10-15% and milk fat and protein content increased. Cases of mastitis were reduced by 96 percent and the number of somatic cells in milk decreased by 3.5 times.
