Perma-Guard - Fossil Shell Flour
Pure Diatomaceous Earth - Food Grade
Why the name Fossil Shell Flour®? It was important to differentiate
our product from all other diatomaceous earth (DE) products in the
marketplace. Perma-Guard DE is milled at a consistency much like
flour and is a fossilized shell (diatom) hence the name Fossil Shell

All diatomaceous earth is not the same. Diatomaceous earth (DE)
packaged under the Perma-Guard Fossil Shell Flour® label comes
from an extremely pure fresh water deposit of the diatom Melosira
Preicelanica. Why is this diatom so special? Its shell is made of
amorphous silica. Its shape and hardness are important to how it
works. Its hardness keeps it from dissolving in liquid. The holes
along the diatom's wall allow it to absorb moisture, hence its use as
an anti-caking agent.

Animal and bird feeds contain substances such as molasses that
cause the particles to become "sticky" . Fossil Shell Flour®, mixed in
the feed, coats each particle making it difficult for the particles to
stick together. This allows the feed to "flow" better and its absorption
ability protects it from mold. No mold means less wasted feed. By
separating the particles of feed, the animal's digestive enzymes are
able to completely surround each particle. This allows for a more
complete digestion. The animal gets more benefit from his feed and
the owner more benefit for his feed dollar.

Fossil Shell Flour® anti-caking agent is to be mixed at a rate not to
exceed 2% of the dry weight of the rations. This means, when
mixing, in every one hundred pounds of feed, 2 pounds of feed is
replaced by 2 pounds of Fossil Shell Flour® . Fossil Shell Flour® is
OMRI listed.

Customer Comments Regarding Feeding Food-Grade DE                  
to Their Animals:
Dr. Phillip Schaible, while heading the Department of Poultry Sciences at Michigan State University, made a
study of European literature regarding adding Diatomaceous Earth to dairy cows’ feed and made the
following report: “Contains 15 trace minerals important to animal diets, DE mixes well with all feeds while
guarding against insect damage. Prevents worms and keeps virus epidemics from developing. Saves
albumen, destroys harmful acids, safeguards the stomach. Improves health and growth of young animals
Causes better digestion, allowing animals to absorb a higher percentage of protein from its regular diet.”

Dr. C.S. Hansen, D.V.M., with over 8,000 chickens, kept half on regular diet, added Fossil Shell Flour to the
other group. The Fossil Shell Flour group immediately had a lower death rate, egg production went up, and
egg breakage went way down. His profitability went way up.

Dr. H.D. Johnson, D.V.M., Saskatchewan Vet Clinic, Canada, worked with 2,000 calves for two years without a
single case of scours, using Fossil Shell Flour. He said, “using Fossil Shell Flour, we have been able to
eliminate vaccines and antibiotics.”

Dr. M.F. Petty, D.V.M.: “The use of Fossil Shell Flour gave immediate elimination and control of worms,
stopped pigs from rooting and chewing feeder boxes, reduced manure odor, greatly reduced fly population
and increased feed efficiency. Really improved profitability.”

Capitol South Syndicate Mgr., Dan Miller: “Feeding Fossil Shell Flour to my show and racehorses, stallions,
mares, foals and horses in training, we have seen improvements in their hair coat and their attitude. Flies and
parasites are less of a problem.”

Leslie “Shorty” Thomas, Trainer, L. Frank Roper Stables, Winter Garden, Florida: “I take pride in the
appearance and health of the horses under my care, which have won many national awards against stiff
competition. I am constantly on the alert for products I feel can improve their health and condition. I am
grateful to have found Fossil Shell Flour and here is why: It stopped scours, noticeably reduced flies,
increased appetites, produced better feed conversion, eliminated internal parasites and created a healthier
appearance. I would definitely recommend this product to other horsemen.”

Johnnie Firestone on sheep: “We were losing one sheep every three days from the fringe tape worm in the
bile duct. We started feeding the animals Fossil Shell Flour mixed with salt and cotton seed meal. Within two
weeks the deaths stopped. Since that time we have lost two sheep, but not from worms. To say that I am sold
on Fossil Shell Flour is a rank understatement. I suggest to anyone, “just try it. It does not cost much!’”

Michigan Department of Agriculture made a laboratory study of the internal organs from a cow that had been
fed Fossil Shell Flour for five years and found no visible evidence of abnormalities.

University of Illinois personnel, referring to tests run on dairy cattle fed 2% of Fossil Shell Flour in their rations,
stated there was no apparent harmful effect and that there was no evidence of the DE in the milk. After feeding
it continuously, they also found that the average production of milk and butterfat per cow was increased.
