Salkil is a combination of free carboxylic acids and their ammonium salts on a unique carrier. The carrier ensures that the beneficial effects of the product are not restricted to the feed.
Salkil is able to offer protection against contamination or re-contamination of poultry feed by Gram negative enteropathogens such as E. coli and Salmonella. Therefore Salkil is regularly used to improve the biosecurity of feed mills by acting as a disinfectant flush after cleaning. It is also being used as a means of reducing contamination in feedbins and feeders where feed is stored either in the mill or on farm.
Salkil contains propionates and therefore it is effective as a mould inhibitor for finished feed.
Salkil assists in the acidification of the entire digestive tract of the bird by providing a controlled release of acids.
This combination of activities promotes a healthy gut microflora by minimising the contamination risk from feed. By using Salkil natural organic acids to modify gut pH helps exclude potential enteropathogens such as Salmonella, E. coli and Campylobacter.
Salkil is included in the diet at 2 -4 kg/Te depending on the challenge risk.
Use 2 kg/Te for pelleted feeds or when using low risk raw materials.
Use 4 kg/Te for mash feeds or when using animal protein sources.
Salkil is packed in 25 kg non-slip, pre-printed plastic sacks.
