Calcium nitrate feed
Bolifor® CNF is an inorganic feed material of calcium nitrate feed grade and derives from the chemical synthesis of calcium phosphate rock and nitric acid. It is a highly available source of calcium (Ca) and non-protein nitrogen (NPN), with a low level of undesirable elements well below that stipulated by EU feed registration.
A unique feed grade calcium nitrate product, derived from the chemical synthesis of calcium phosphate rock and nitric acid.
The selected raw materials, of only mineral origin, and production process ensure a product and a low level of undesirable elements well below that stipulated by EU feed legislation.
Bolifor MGP appears as white prills with consistent quality. The product is highly soluble in water.
The innovative production route of Bolifor CNF used by Yara guarantees the most energy-efficient way of manufacturing calcium nitrate as well as a lower carbon footprint compared to conventional production processes. Bolifor CNF has a minimum level of undesirable substances, consistently.
Methane is a greenhouse gas with a strong global warming potential. Besides, it is a product of feed fermentation in the rumen of ruminants. Bolifor CNF acts as a hydrogen sink in the rumen, which directly reduces methane production and prevents the energy loss associated with CH4 production by the methanogenic microorganisms. Bolifor CNF has been proven to reduce up to 20% CH4 the methane yield.
Protein is a major limiting nutrient for the current animal. Bolifor CNF calcium nitrate is a non-protein nitrogen (NPN) and highly available calcium (Ca) source. Microbes in the rumen can metabolize the NPN compounds to ultimately produce microbial proteins which will be ready for absorption through the animal’s gastrointestinal tract. Calcium is one of the most abundant minerals in the body.
The consistent composition of Bolifor CNF contributes to maintaining the calcium balance in ruminant diets. Besides, calcium nitrate reduces the number of methanogens, which directly mitigates methane emission and mitigation and prevents the energy loss associated with CH4 production by these microorganisms

Directions for use
The superior chemical solubility, convenient particle size makes Bolifor CNF a top-ranked prilled calcium nitrate source. It is recommended for use in ruminant supplements to mitigate methane emission. Based on scientific research, the inclusion rate should not exceed 2,5% of the diet (on a dry matter basis). A gradual introduction is advised. Consultation with an animal nutritionist for adjusting the dose prior to utilisation is strongly recommended.
Bolifor CNF has also proven to enhance reproductive performance in swine.
