AJ Energi & Strø - MCP Zeolite gives your pigs a natural start in life
Keep your animals healthy and give them better growth conditions by using MCP Zeolite.
MCP Zeolite is a natural product that stabilises stomach bacteria and reduces the need for zinc and antibiotics.
What is MCP Zeolite?
Zeolite is a mineral of volcanic origin formed by nature over millions of years. Zeolite is also called nature’s cleaning agent as it converts substances into nutrients and thus creates optimal conditions for a sustainable environment. The crystal structure of zeolite with its open pores allows absorption of various contaminants (including organic ones). Whether zeolite is used to purify water or to keep animals healthy, the cleaning and healing qualities of the minerals make all the difference.
MCP Zeolite at AJ Energi & Strø?
There are many different forms of zeolites, both natural and synthetic. AJ Energi & Strø sells Clinoptilolite zeolite, which is zeolite in its natural form. We sell bedding with added zeolite, but we also sell pure zeolite to be added to feed. Clinoptilolite zeolite is approved for organic farming.

Why use MCP Zeolite in feed?
Feed containing zeolite maintains the pH balance of the blood and strengthens the animal’s immune system. The indigestible zeolite travels through the gastrointestinal tract and binds contaminants selectively like a sponge, after which it is secreted naturally through the guts with faeces without stressing the metabolism. This has a positive effect on digestion. It helps prevent stomach disorders and increases the animal’s ability to absorb proteins from the feed. Numerous analyses show that the use of zeolite keeps animals healthier resulting in better growth.
Dosage 8 - 10 kg per tonne
Why use MCP Zeolite in bedding?
Zeolite has outstanding absorption properties and is therefore the ideal choice for use in bedding. Zeolite absorbs smell (ammonia) / moisture and prevents the reproduction of bacteria. Zeolite protects, cleans and transforms “negative” environments into the opposite. Bedding with zeolite can therefore be used to advantage to prolong durability and ensure cleaner animals in a healthy environment.
Zeolite increases the nitrogen content of manure.
