Cattle will generally self-regulate their intake. Simply put a container in a paddock and fill it with 1kg for every 50-100 animals in the paddock. If the animals are deficient in Iodine, they will consume it quickly but as their Iodine levels rise they will eat less.

Reported Health Benefits

  • Improved immune system

  • Improved conception rates, more live births, healthier offspring

  • Improved animal condition and fatter animals

  • Improved feed efficiency

  • Improved milk yield

For an average sized horse of 500kg we recommended approximately 10g (or two levelled tablespoons) of Zelp Kibble per week. This can be added directly to their feed or given as a supplement on the side. For smaller or larger horses adjust the quantity in proportion to the difference in size (i.e. for a 250kg animal give 5g or one tablespoon per week)


Reported Health Benfits:

  • Improved immune system
  • Improved conception rates, more live births, healthier offspring
  • Improved animal condition
  • Reduced health problems

  • Add to feed box. Make sure you have a salt block beside so the animals don’t try to get their salt from the Zelp. Rock salt is much cheaper than Zelp.
  • Add to other feed at correct ratio

Zelp for Sheep

Zelp for Sheep & Goats

Sheep, will generally self-regulate their intake of Zelp. Sheep need different amounts of iodine at difference times of the year. Sheep require the most iodine one month either side of tupping and one month either side of lambing.

During these times give 100-200g of Zelp Kibble for every 100 sheep per week.

Iodine supplements are not essential outside these times but you can reduce the quantity to 25g kelp per 100 animals per week if you want.
