The Unique Feed Acidifier and Mould Inhibitor

IMPROVES FEED EFFICIENCY AND ACHIEVES FASTER WEIGHT GAINS. A BETTER ALTERNATIVE TO ANTIBIOTIC GROWTH PROMOTERS.

Enteric Micro-organisms and Mycotoxins-a constant threat to
Poultry Breeders and Feed manufacturers

Microbes compete with the birds for essential nutrients available in the feed, multiply in large numbers and cause harm to health and productivity of poultry. Mycotoxins adversely affect the nutritive value of feed and damage bird's liver and other vital organs. Inspite of best sanitation of environment, microbes and mycotoxins find their way to the digestive system of the birds through the CROP - The store house of digestive system.

The Unique Feed Acidifier and Mould Inhibitor

By acidification of feed and digestive system, Raafres controls the growth and multiplication of bacteria including pathogenic organisms of public health concern.

Unlike Antibiotics acidifiers are SAFE and do not result in problems of resistant organisms or residues.

The organic acids in Raafres are in RIGHT LEVELS and RIGHT RATIOS for optimum performance.
  
  Raafres ACIDIFICATION ADVANTAGES
  

Raafres improves availability digestion, absorption and utilisation of nutrients in the feed by inhibiting microbes. Reduced number of microbes result in thinning of intestinal walls and increased size of villi - helps better absorption of nutrients.

Improves efficiency of enzymes by enhancing release and utilisation of nutrients from feed.

Acidification favours growth of Acidophilus bacterial flora that prevents growth of pathogens.

Improves utilisation of trace elements due to their chelation.

Acidification, unlike antibiotics, does not result in acid residues or acid resistant organisms.

Safe and progressive intestinal acidification reduces the risk of enterotoxaemia. 

Raafres contains Mannen's Oligo Sachcharides which prevents colonisation by bacteria (E.Coli etc.) in the intestine and improves health and productivity of birds.
