    Abstract

    This specification covers limestone supplied for use as a mineral supplement in animal feeds. Limestone shall conform to the chemical requirements specified. In order to determine particle size, a sieve analysis shall be done.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers limestone supplied for use as a mineral supplement in animal feeds.

    Note 1The calcium needed for animal nutrition is customarily supplied by limestone. Such limestone must be sufficiently fine to blend with mixed feeds and yet be free from excessive dusting.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard, except for sieve frames which are given in inch-pound units in accordance with Specification E11.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
