DCP is the contraction of Dicalciun phosphate which is a synthetic chemicals compound looks like white powder with acidic or alkaline PH and its chemical formula is CaHPo4. DCP has different types of hydrate,monohydrate and dihydrate and it is made of the combination of Arthophosphoric acid and Calcium Carbonate.
Considering the important role of phosphorus and calcium in physiological processes and body metabolism of livesocks and poultries and cattle , lack or excess of DCP in their feed rations can cause several copmplications and fatal disorders and also by considering the close relationship which exists between phosphorus and calcium in body, producing DCP needs special process and expertise. So DCP consumers have to be really careful about the appropriate quality of it , because it may have enough amounts of phosphorus and calcium but it may contains toxic factors which have antifeedant properties for cattles and poultries. Using inappropriate sources of phosphorus in flocks of poultries is completely wrong and harmful because the impurity of these sources of phosphorus causes toxicity, problems in metabolism of bones and the operation of kidnies and liver in poultries.
