Free-choice Feeding:
Cattle, sheep and goats tend to self-regulate free-choice consumption of Icelandic kelp meal to levels consistent with recommended rates. In some cases, animals will consume larger than normal quantities, but this binge typically only lasts 30-60 days, depending on the animal's mineral status. If higher consumption continues beyond 60 days, mix kelp with salt, one-to-one, to reduce intake, and consult your nutritionist. When feeding kelp free-choice, provide one covered mineral feeder for every 25-30 cows and every 40-50 sheep or goats. Also make sure animals have access to salt and clean water.


Kelp for Plants & Crops
KELP AS FERTILIZER

As our soil erodes and is washed into the sea, kelp feeds on the dissolved minerals. Worked into the soil, dried kelp returns depleted minerals to the land, improving texture and fertility. Icelandic 100% natural organic fertilizer is a non-burning mineralizer. Applied year round to vegetables, ornamentals, and trees it provides excellent vital nutrients our plants need. We use it mixed in water when transplanting as well. The fertilizer ratio of Icelandic Kelp Meal is 1-0-2.

Additional Information
WHERE DOES ICELANDIC KELP COME FROM & HOW IS IT HARVESTED?

Icelandic kelp is produced in a pristine environment close to the Arctic Circle. Icelandic kelp is geothermically dried under low temperatures that keep the vitamins, minerals, and enzymes intact.

Icelandic Kelp is  carefully selected and harvested from the finest sea vegetation from around the world. Icelandic Kelp is harvested from Northwest Iceland on the edge of the Artic Circle. These kelps beds were chosen for their nutrient content, clean growing site and sustainability of harvest. The cold, clean waters of this area offer the perfect conditions for growing. Icelandic Kelp is dried near the harvest site, so the kelp does not lose any of the nutrients in transport. The kelp is geothermically dried at low temperatures to protect the minerals, vitamins and beneficial phytonutrients.

Icelandic Kelp is deeply committed to being environmentally, economically, and socially responsible - for nearly three decades Thorvin has implemented harvesting practices to promote sustainability and protect the aquatic biodiversity of the kelp fields where they harvest.

Pure ocean marine algae seaweed from the world's cleanest and richest sea waters, Icelandic kelp contains 60 minerals, natural vitamins and other health factors. Icelandic kelp is 100% organic and complies with the USDA NOP organic feed requirements. Icelandic Kelp is the highest quality kelp available. We have tried and compared Norwegian and Acadian kelp meals and neither contain the high percentages of vitamins, minerals, micro nutrients, and amino acid that Icelandic kelp does.
