Uses


Agricola Dolomitic Magnesite is used to raise the pH of acidic soils and to add magnesium where there is a magnesium deficiency.  When used as a supplement in grain diets of beef and dairy cattle Agricola Superfine Dolomitic Magnesite can help buffer the lactic acid produced.  In addition it is a safe, effective and economical source of magnesium that can replace magnesium oxide (a caustic chemical) in stock feed.
