The team at Jones-Hamilton Co. are known as experts on pH management in animal production. Explore our library of resources to find insights on maximizing product benefits and poultry litter management best practices.
In a study that compared PLT with two other litter amendments, only PLT-treated houses showed significantly less ammonia. Learn more about the performance of PLT as it relates to condemnations, weight and other factors.
Even though most poultry producers have specific brooding management programs, many flocks are affected by respiratory problems that can be directly attributed to a failure to follow those guidelines. Learn about three basic steps to minimize disease and performance loss.
In the last 20 years, things have changed: different housing, different chickens, different feed programs. So why haven’t many of our litter amendment programs kept pace with the increases in ammonia load in the litter?
Sodium bisulfate (SBS), commonly used in the dairy industry to reduce bacterial counts in bedding and ammonia emissions, was shown to be effective in the mitigation of ammonia and alcohol emissions from fresh dairy slurry as well as other areas.
Acidifying amendments have been shown to be effective in reducing ammonia emissions from poultry operations. This study set out to evaluate what levels of PLT were needed to maintain ammonia levels at or below 25 ppm during the grow-out period.
