Description

Limestone flour is used as a supplementary source of calcium.  Limestone Flour is a fine white powder, nominally less than 300 microns.  The material has been crushed, milled, dried and screened, then milled and classified again to produce a product of exceptional purity and consistency.

Mistakenly ground limestone flour has often been recommended as a rumen buffer fed at 100gms – 200gms per cow on the grounds of price. It is well absorbed at the very low pH seen in the true stomach but is largely insoluble above about 5.5 pH. Limestone flour is therefore totally unsuitable as a rumen buffer and should not be used as such.
