Reduce Challenges, Improve Flock Performance

Smart litter management is a crucial part to maintaining a healthy environment and reducing challenges for increased flock performance. PLT® litter acidifier binds with and eliminates ammonia, and lowers litter pH to create an environment unfavorable for bacteria growth, allowing birds to optimize their genetic potential. By binding ammonia, PLT® also reduces environmental emissions and decreases ventilations needs, which in turn reduces fuel costs. And it’s the only litter amendment that can be safely applied with birds in the house.
