Cipher

For optimal nutrient absorption and improved feed efficiency

Cipher is an inorganic feed acidifier proven to enhance growth performance. By helping to maintain gut integrity, even during stressful rearing conditions, Cipher enables optimal nutrient absorption and improved feed efficiency.

With the growth of antibiotic-free (ABF) poultry production, Cipher has proven to be a suitable alternative due to its ability to minimize bacteria growth on feed, and its beneficial impact on gut health and feed conversion. Acidification of feed minimizes bacterial growth and promotes good gut health, thereby enhancing the performance of animals.

Benefits of Cipher

  • Helps maintain gut integrity for enhanced growth performance
  • Improves nutrient absorption and digestion
  • Significantly lowers feed conversion
  • Lowers pH to minimize bacteria growth in feed
  • Provides flexibility in feed formulation
  • GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) and suitable for antibiotic-free (ABF) programs

Cipher Is Different

As an inorganic (or mineral) acid, Cipher has the ability to effectively lower pH without encapsulation and does not pose any palatability or intake issues that are seen with formate. Plus, it offers formulators additional flexibility. Cipher not only supplies additional sulfur as sulfate for limiting amino acids, it supplies sodium without chloride which will reduce moisture and improve droppings.

Frequently Asked Questions

How should Cipher be handled in the mill?

Cipher should be handled just like salt. Care should be taken to keep the product dry and equipment should be flushed with grain or meal. The product may be added to the mixer by hand, micro machine or through the minor ingredient scale.

What is the proper inclusion rate?

Broilers – 4-8 lbs./ton of feed in all rations
Turkeys – 6 lbs./ton of feed in all rations

Research has shown a rate of 4-8 lbs./ton of feed provides the greatest return for the first 28-30 days in broilers. Cipher is recommended for use throughout the grow-out for biological challenges and ammonia control in Cornish hens, small or large birds. A rate of up to 6 lbs./ton through 12 weeks is recommended for turkey toms or hens.

Can Cipher be used in antibiotic free programs?

Yes, Cipher is considered a natural product and is recognized as GRAS.
