New Country Organics: "Thorvin Kelp is the finest Certified Organic nutrient source on the market today. Kelp contains a range of minerals and vitamins often deficient in soils and feed and has a broad array of uses in agriculture and product formulations.

Note that because this product is bagged in a mill which handles organic grains, it may not be completely free of small pieces of organic grain.

For animal feeding programs, average intake levels on a free choice basis (per head per day) are as follows:

  • Livestock: 1 to 4 ounces
  • Dogs: ½ to 1 teaspoon per animal per day 
  • Cats: ¼ teaspoon per animal per day 
  • Poultry: 1-2% of feed ration 

Healthy animals require a balanced diet, including many vitamins and minerals not found in today’s forages or feeds. Kelp is a valuable renewable resource for animal health. Kelp concentrates the nutritious minerals dissolved in ocean water into a complex natural food supplement containing over 60 vitamins, minerals, and amino acids in a readily available form, including iodine. Absorbable iodine, deficient in many soils, grasses and feeds, is essential for healthy thyroid function. 

 For fertilizer applications, general recommendations are as follows:

  • 200 to 500 lbs: Broadcast per acre 
  • 200 to 500 lbs: In the row per acre 
  • 10 lbs. to 30 lbs: Per 1000 sq. ft. of garden 
  • 1 teaspoon: Per 6 inch pot for houseplants 
  • 10 lbs. to 20 lbs: Per ton of compost 

Kelps are among the most useful species of seaweeds. The most valuable kelps grow in cold, mineral-rich waters and grow more slowly. These kelps collect minerals, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids and other beneficial bioactive properties. Thorvin carefully captures and preserves these nutrients using the most effective drying and storing methods in order to deliver the most consistently effective products derived from these kelps. Thorvin requires superior selection, management, harvesting and processing to meet its standards.

**Please DO NOT feed Thorvin Kelp directly to Rabbits. The level of iodine in the kind of kelp Thorvin provides is very high. While for many animals this is a benefit, rabbits are sensitive to iodine. "
