From its impact on house ventilation programs to ammonia generation and bird health, moisture has the potential to wreak havoc if left unchecked.
When you put PLT head-to-head against the competition, it's easy to see that no other product comes close to its level of safety and efficacy.
When you make pickles, you preserve them by lowering pH. Watch now to understand how that relates to the condition of your litter.
Want to get the most out of your poultry litter windrowing? Follow these 6 steps to maximize effectiveness.
While a certain amount of risk is unavoidable in animal production, managing risk can help limit exposure to losses. In live production, risk presents itself in many forms, one of which is ammonia.
While ammonia in the gas phase does not seem to irritate skin on the feet, ammonia found in wet litter can cause burns or dermatitis. With moisture playing such a key role in downgraded paws, these are the three key variables to focus on to keep paws healthy .
Dr. Joey Bray shares his key tips to successfully manage litter between flocks so that your ammonia control, litter moisture and PLT effectiveness all reach optimum levels.
Applying PLT lowers litter pH and eliminates ammonia for improved air quality while increasing the nutrient value of litter. But that is just the beginning of the story on sustainability.
Proper pre-heating of the poultry house environment is essential to maximizing flock performance. Pre-heating raises the core temperature of the litter bed, which increases ammonia volatilization and water evaporation.
PLT increases the nutrient value of litter by retaining nitrogen and turning ammonia gas into fertilizer.
Studies have shown that ammonia can reduce food consumption, growth rate and carcass quality. PLT helps improve feed conversion for better performance and lower costs.
Poultry growers use litter amendments to control ammonia and pH, but not all litter amendments are created equal when it comes to safety and impact on the environment. PLT is the safest choice.
Ammonia in the wet areas of litter is corrosive to skin. PLT neutralizes ammonia on the litter’s surface, improving animal welfare and enabling more Grade A paws for improved profitability.
PLT decreases greenhouse gas emissions, improve animal welfare parameters and more. Companies invested in sustainability efforts that truly make a difference use PLT.
PLT poultry litter treatment provides reliable, safe, affordable ammonia control that allows growers to ventilate for relative humidity, not ammonia, which lowers costs significantly.
PLT poultry litter treatment provides reliable, safe, affordable ammonia control that boosts performance, lowers fuel costs and improves animal welfare.
Maximize your litter and water management programs
PLT has a positive impact on paw quality and helps get more profit out of paws.
The most efficient use of PLT is to bind ammonia released from litter in the presence of chicks—not to control ammonia in an empty house.
PLT is hygroscopic and does not need heat to activate.
