SQ-810 natural sodium sesquicarbonate is a mineral that is fed to dairy and beef cattle as a rumen buffer. It is also fed to poultry as a source of sodium without chlorides.
Na2CO3 NaHCO3 2H2O (Sodium Sesquicarbonate)
Sodium sesquicarbonate is listed as a mineral feed ingredient by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (57.138 AAFCO, IFN 6-17-895). “Sodium sesquicarbonate is the mixed sodium salt of carbonic acid. It generally provides not less than 90 percent of the hydrated double salt with a minimum 42 percent sodium carbonate, 33 percent minimum sodium bicarbonate and a maximum 10 percent insolubles. Sodium sesquicarbonate contains not less than 27.5 percent sodium.”

Dairy: For best results, SQ-810 natural sodium sesquicarbonate should be added to a balanced lactating cow diet at the following minimums:
Based on milk production, feed 0.8 ounces per 10 pounds of milk produced (i.e., 8 ounces per cow per day for a cow producing 100 pounds of milk). These levels can be achieved by adding 30 pounds per ton in the non-forage (grain) portion of the diet OR by adding 15 pounds per ton of total mixed ration (TMR).
Under most feeding conditions, additional SQ-810 natural sodium sesquicarbonate may be beneficial to increase dietary cation/anion difference (DCAD).
Poultry: Feed to poultry as a source of sodium (carbonate and bicarbonate) without chloride. Include in the diet at levels of 6 to 8 pounds per ton.
Beef: In starting cattle, use SQ-810 natural sodium sesquicarbonate at a rate of 1.0% to 1.5% of total dietary dry matter for the first 30 days. After the cattle are well acclimated to the ration, reduce the feeding rate to 0.50% to 0.75% of diet dry matter.
If a high silage (high moisture) diet or highly fermentable wheat is fed in the finishing period, use 1.0% SQ-810 natural sodium sesquicarbonate in the total diet dry matter.
Sheep/Goats: SQ-810 natural sodium sesquicarbonate should be fed at a rate of 0.75% of the total mixed ration (15 pounds per ton).
|Alkalizes/buffers||Neutralizes and buffers the rumen environment|
|Dry granular texture||Easy to store, handle, mix and feed|
|Sold in bags or bulk||Convenient|
