Trikaltsiyfosfat fodder represents gray or gray with a brown shade, amorphous powder, cream or light yellow, white with a gray shade. The final product includes about 93% of chemically pure trikaltsiyfosfat.
Is a part of minerals — phosphorite, apatite, a gidroksilapatit.
Other names: TKF, monokaltsiyfosfat, dikaltsiyfosfat, pretsipitat, calcium phosphate, phosphate of calcium the fodder, three-replaced calcium phosphate, calcium ortho-phosphate, calcic salt of orthophosphoric acid, calcium fosfornokisly, tekhn. nazv. — the defluorinated phosphate.
Trikaltsiyfosfat is natural, in the form of bone coal and bone ashes, it is applied, like the pretsipitat and a trikaltsiyfosfat received from superphosphate to top dressing of cattle, and birds.
It is the most widespread calcium - the phosphorus additive which is traditionally applied in practice of animal husbandry. It is used as mineral top dressing (for enrichment and balancing of diets of farm animals, including a bird, calcium and phosphorus) in production of compound feeds.
For many years trikaltsiyfosfat was almost only widespread fodder phosphate. Such traditions in use of TKF allow some experts also now to identify the concept "fodder phosphates" only with one their version — trikaltsiyfosfaty.
Today in all countries diets of animals and birds taking into account a ratio of phosphorus and calcium balance. It allows to use more economically additives and to avoid overdose. Excessive content of phosphorus increases a forage expense, reduces reproductive function and does manure and dung water ecologically dangerous. The ratio of calcium and phosphorus in a trikaltsiyfosfata is ideally balanced for animals since in an organism the ratio of these elements makes 2:1. It does its use by the most effective both for farms, and for producers of compound feeds.
The phosphorus-calcium feed additive having about 100% of water-soluble phosphorus is good for all animal species since not only the protein, fats, carbohydrates and vitamins, but also mineral substances are necessary for their full feeding. Efficiency of its use in animal husbandry is explained by the fact that phosphorus of an inorganic origin is acquired by animals also well, as well as organic.
Use of fodder phosphates increases full value of feeding of animals and increases their efficiency (daily additional weights, quality of meat, milk yield of milk). Extent of its assimilation is quite high (about 92%) and depends on a diet, age and other factors much less. Introduction to a diet of fodder phosphates allows to avoid diseases, connected with a lack of these macrocells, to provide a due metabolism in an organism and consequently, effective functioning of immune and reproductive systems.
