Last August, we conducted an experiment at one farm of a large egg producer to verify the effect of our product, PlusBreathe©.

From this experiment, it can be seen that the use of PlusBreathe© can effectively alleviate heat stress, increase feed and water intake, and reduce the mortality of layers. 

Trial design

The trial took place during a hot period, with temperatures outside the farm ranging from 36ºC to 39ºC.

One house with 55,000 layers was selected as trial group. There was no control group. 

  • From August 25th to 29th, the birds received PlusBreathe through drinking water, from 8 am to 17 pm. 
  • Each afternoon, a water dilution of PlusBreathe was sprayed in the environment of the farm.

 

During the period,  the following parameters were observed: water intake, feed intake, daily mortality.

Results

Daily feed intake, g/animal

Daily water consumption, L/animal

Daily mortality, nº birds/day

Conclusions

With the use of PlusBreathe, feed and water intake increased, while the daily mortality was reduced. 

Products of choice

PlusBreathe© contains essential oils with natural antiseptic, antioxidant, expectorant and mucolytic activity. It has a refreshing taste.

It is indicated to improve the functioning of the respiratory system and to mitigate heat stress in birds, ruminants, pigs and rabbits of all ages. It can also be sprayed in the environment of the farm.
