6 Reasons Our Premium Poultry Feeds Can't Be Beat
By: Poulin Grain
The difference is visible. More meat. More eggs. Happy and healthy hens.
Poulin Grain poultry feeds contain scientifically proven natural ingredients to maintain the health and welfare of your flock, naturally! These 6 ingredients help make our premium poultry feeds the best choice for your birds.
Poulin Grain premium poultry feeds contain three proven, safe and effective essential oils:
Cinnamaldehyde from cinnamon protects the stomach and intestinal wall and improves nutrient absorption.
Carvacol from oregano stimulates volatile fatty acids in the colon, favoring the growth of beneficial gut micro-flora.
Capsicum from chili peppers stimulates the bird's digestive enzyme activity, increasing nutrient absorption.
Mannan-oligosaccharides (MOS), is a type of prebiotic derived from the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast, and is responsible for maintaining a healthy digestive tract and allowing birds to grow to their full potential.
MOS is a non-digestible sugar that has the same binding site on its surface as the small intestine. Disease process and damage begins when pathogens in the digestive tract bind to the wall of the intestine. When MOS is present, the bad bacteria adhere to the binding sites on these sugars, instead of the intestinal wall. Since MOS prebiotics are non-digestible, the harmful pathogens are carried on through the digestive tract of the bird rather than causing disease.
Direct fed microbials (DFM) work to maintain intestinal health and inhibit the growth of the pathogenic bacteria Clostridium perfringens. Research has shown that DFM decreases the presence of necrotic enteritis, a bacterial disease that can cause depression of growth rate, reduced feed efficiency and increased mortality in flocks. DFM is another natural solution to maintaining a healthy intestinal tract.
Phytase enzyme helps unlock the phosphorus bound in plant fibers, reducing the amount of phosphorus excreted by the bird. Poulin Grain premium poultry feeds are balanced for amino acids and phytase, reducing nitrogen and phosphorus waste in the manure.
Marigold extract provides a stunning deep yellow colored yolk, and increased lutein levels in eggs. Lutein is a carotenoid found naturally in green leafy vegetables and plays a significant role in eye health.
Yucca extract helps improve bird health by inhibiting the development of coccidia, a common poultry parasite that can cause reduced growth and also death.
In addition, Yucca helps reduce fecal odor and the excretion of ammonia that can cause respiratory issues and blindness in birds housed with inadequate ventilation. Less nutrient excretion also means less environmental pollution.
