Why use Thermo® Poultry?
Managing heat stress is a real economic issue for the poultry sector. In France, the cost of the 2003 heatwave has been estimated at 44.5 million euro (Source: ITAVI).
Heat stress impacts not only the welfare of the birds but also affects feed consumption and digestive efficiency. Performance (ADG, feed conversion rate, rate of lay) and livestock health are impaired.
How it works
To deal with the harmful effects of heatwaves in poultry, DELTAVIT has developed Thermo® Poultry.This innovative solution combines the synergistic action of rigorously selected electrolytes, antioxidants and flavonoids.
During heatwaves, Thermo® Poultry alleviates the negative impact of heat stress. Its handy format – a ready-to-use, single dose sachet – makes it quick and easy to use in livestock farming.
Proven efficacy in broilers
Improvement of zootechnical performance
Improvement of behavioral indicators
Did you know ?
Acceleration of the breathing rate is the principal thermoregulation mechanism in poultry. They are thus very sensitive to the ambient temperature and the humidity level in the air.
When heatwaves affect your poultry, fasting the birds during the hottest times of the day may reduce mortality. At such times, only the distribution of a nutritional speciality in the drinking water is possible.
They said “yes” to Thermo® Poultry
“My hens are livelier, more active and show fewer signs of heat stress.”
“I haven’t had any major dips in feed intake.”
“Mortality was down by 1.38 points over the period under observation.”
“In general, there was less weight loss.”
“ As it is used in the drinking water, Thermo® Poultry makes it possible to react sooner during heatwaves.”
