USA Gypsum manufactures multiple high quality gypsum products for a variety of uses, such as gypsum for lawns, agricultural gypsum, and gypsum animal bedding.
Gypsum is a soluble source of the essential plant nutrients, calcium and sulfur, and can improve overall plant growth. Gypsum amendments can improve the physical properties of some soils (especially heavy clay soils). Gypsum promotes soil aggregation and help prevent dispersion of soil particles, reduce surface crust formation, promote seedling emergence, and increase water infiltration rates and movement through the soil profile. It can also reduce erosion losses of soils and nutrients and reduce concentrations of soluble phosphorus in surface water runoff.
Gypsum bedding additives include products designed for poultry litter, free stalls, stanchion barns and bedding packs. We also offer several grades of barn dry. A chemical reaction between gypsum and ammonia in urine ties up the ammonia in the form of ammonium sulfate. Odor is reduced and the environment in the building improved. Because Gypsum Bedding combined with manure is spread on croplands, it has additional value as a source of additional Nitrogen, Calcium and Sulfur. Most farmers purchase these products for their crops so the cost of Gypsum bedding is recovered.
