Product of the month: AgriCure  Energy

 

Give your chicks a boost with AgriCure Energy! AgriCure Energy is a very palatable product which contains two sugars, Dextrose  and Sorbitol, which help to increase weight and muscle by enhancing active feeding behaviour. It also contains betaine, which positively affects feed utilization and meat quality. Betaine also helps the birds to cope with heat stress, which may be an issue all year around, particularly prior to thinning in broilers when the birds are at their maximum stocking densities. This product is highly soluble and it is administered at 1 ml of product per litre of drinking water for 3 to 5 days. We recommend flushing the lines after the last day of treatment. AgriCure Energy is also used in pullets, post vaccination or post transfer to the laying farm, to boost the levels of energy of the birds after the stress caused by handling and transport. This product helps to maintain body weight and ensures a smooth transition to the new housing environment. For more information about this product or to place an order, please contact any of our branches and one of our poultry vets will be happy to help.

The AgriCure range is exclusive to Poultry Health Services.
