So, what is bone meal?

Bone meal is a finely ground powder made from the bones of animals. It is commonly used as a natural fertilizer for plants due to its high levels of phosphorus and calcium. Bone meal is also a popular ingredient in animal feed as it contains valuable minerals and proteins that are essential for animal growth and development. In addition, bone meal has been used for centuries in traditional medicine as a source of calcium and other nutrients. However, it is important to note that the use of bone meal may be restricted in some countries due to concerns over the transmission of diseases such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) or mad cow disease.
