Animal feed minerals
Feed phosphates, marked under the BOLIFOR® trade name, became part of Yara’s product portfolio after the Kemira GrowHow acquisition. Our products contain high bioavailable macro minerals and offer the state-of-the-art in safety and quality guarantees for the feed chain and the welfare/performance of animals.
From mine to market
The story of Feed Minerals, and especially inorganic feed phosphates, starts in the soil with a phosphorous-rich ore: the apatite. Yara’s apatite is mined from a volcanic deposit in Siilinjärvi, Finland, and converted on site in the company own’s production facilities into phosphoric acid.
The phosphoric acid is the first ingredient in the manufacture of phosphorus containing inorganic feed minerals. This integration together with the quality of this exclusive deposit and a complete control of the full production allow Animal Nutrition to manufacture and deliver high-purity products that are naturally low in undesirable substances.
Our branded feed minerals are designed to reach criteria of superior quality, excellent nutritional value, high digestibility and traceability. In a world of generic commodities, the BOLIFOR® brand is your guarantee for quality products.
Animal feed acidifiers
Today, feed acidifiers are one of the preferred alternatives to antibiotics in animal feeds. They help promote healthy growth in animals by controlling harmful bacteria and improving digestion.
Yara feed acidifiers, branded under the BOLIFOR® trade name offer a unique formula of organic acids precisely absorbed onto a special carrier made of diatomaceous earth, itself coated by sorbic acid. This allows specific uses, cost performance and return on investment.
