Cleaner birds, more weight, and better settlements!
Successfully raising poultry without antibiotics requires healthy chicks, nutritious food, clean water, and good quality litter. Good growers can’t do much about the chicks they are provided, the food that is delivered to them, or the water they pull from the ground. But good quality litter is something that every grower can ensure and AvaPro-B is one of the most cost-effective options available for developing and maintaining good quality litter flock after flock.
Applied before each flock at a concentration of nearly two billion bacteria per square foot, AvaPro-B introduces huge populations of harmless, waste degrading Bacillus bacteria to the litter. These bacteria are “need activated” and begin growing as the moisture, heat, and nutrients increase as the flock grows. This ensures that the bacteria continue to help improve the litter for the flock’s entire grow out.
Lower ammonia levels
Better feed consumption
Non-toxic and safe to apply with birds in the house; non-corrosive and will not damage equipment; good to use within days of litter acidifiers.
AvaPro-B alters the litter microbiome to limit the growth of disease-causing bacteria, reduce ammonia, and improve overall litter quality. Our Bacillus overwhelm and out-compete harmful pathogens that thrive in the litter. By conserving and stabilizing the nitrogen in the litter, the Bacillus naturally reduce ammonia levels. The composting action helps dry out the litter and eliminate moisture that disease-causing bacteria need to grow.
When to Apply: Apply AvaPro-B to both fresh and built-up litter as early as possible at the beginning of each flock
Litter acidifiers temporarily reduce the pH of the litter and kill large numbers of bacteria. Applying AvaPro-B early maximizes the size of the good bacteria populations that grow with your flock.
Note: AvaPro-B is not affected by insecticides.
If you are using Litter Acidifiers for Ammonia Reduction: AvaPro-B should be spread 5-7 days after applying the acid product, but no later than the end of the brooding period. In non-brooding areas not treated with acidifiers, AvaPro-B can be spread anytime. Use a walk behind or shoulder seed spreader to evenly apply AvaPro-B to the top of the litter. Walk a horseshoe up one side of the feed and water lines and down the other. Repeat this process for each set of feed and water lines.
