The addition of AZOMITE® at either the 0.25% and 0.50% in a standard commercial grade diet significantly improved the FCR over the birds fed the PC diet. Furthermore, when the
energy of a commercial diet is lowered by 10 kcal/lb the inclusion of AZOMITE® into the diet can improve the birds FCR levels comparable to those seen in the PC fed birds.
Overall, there was no difference in BWG or carcass characteristics between any of the treatments, indicating that the benefits observed in FCR are due to the decrease in feed
intake. Upon further examination through histology, there is a significant linear improvement in duodenal villi height with the increased inclusion of AZOMITE to a
commercial diet. This increase in villi height may indicate an improvement in gut health and nutrient absorption resulting in FCR benefits. Read more…

Improving production rates and the quality of hen eggs are topics that concern most societies worldwide, because eggs continue to be a quality nutrition resource for mankind (Jones, 2010). This paper concerns the use of AZOMITE® in layer diets. AZOMITE® (AZO) is the registered trademark name of an ore that contains ~ 70 minerals and trace elements, unique to the deposit from which it is mined. Nutritionists have a good understanding of the biochemical function of ~ 10 essential trace minerals, but it is recognized that several other trace or micro-trace minerals found in AZO are important (Tompkins & Bird, 1998) despite knowledge gaps about their functions.
