Different kind of seaweeds are harvested on every continent. By far the largest quantity is consumed as alginates. Ascophyllum nodosum - a brown seaweed commonly known as knotted, knobbed or bladder wrack, or kelp - is one of many species which form part of the botanical order or algae. Because it is a particularly rich source of minerals, trace elements, and other nutrients, seaweed is an ideal human health food, animal feed supplement, and plant fertilizer. Frøytang, harvesting in unpolluted waters at the most nutritious point in the plant's growth cycle, delivers Ascophyllum of the highest quality and value.

The use of seaweed meal for goats is suggested as follows: ( * see note about horses and other animals)
Provide seaweed meal free choice to all goats, but especially young kids as it is rich in selenium. The seaweed meal should be placed in such a way that it will not become soiled or contaminated by the elements. Your goats will ingest the seaweed meal as they see fit - they seem to know when they need it.

It is also a common practice to add seaweed meal to custom feed mixes but it should be noted, copper and sulphur are recommended to be added to the mineral supplementation in addition to the seaweed meal. Depending upon your goats specific mineral requirements, a standard mixture of seaweed meal would be:

  • 1 pound per every 50 pounds of typical goat feed.

* Concerning horses and other livestock - other seaweed meanl uses:
We receive a number of inquiries regarding the use of seaweed meal for horses, other livestock and gardening use. Regarding horses, our seaweed meal contains no UREA - the product which can be deadly to horses and some other breeds of livestock. Urea is widely used for cattle. Persons using our seaweed meal for gardening should note that our specific seaweed meal can be used for fertilizing plant soils.

For those considering the natural care of specific livestock, we recommend the following books that we have available at GoatWorld. Each of these books outlines the specific use of seaweed meal as incorporated into the diet:
