is a specially designed mixture of different additives that alleviates the negative impact caused by heat stress, by preventing a reduction in feed intake and a decrease in zoo-technical performances. Because of dehydration during heat stress, it is important to supply extra electrolytes, since they are excreted together with water. The product also provides an extra support to the animals by regulating anti-stress hormones and by increasing its anti-oxidative capacities.
Redustress Poultry Plus ™ is a white-brown, fine powder that is free flowing and heat stable during the manufacturing of premix and/or final feed. It is also water soluble, so it can be added to the drinking line as soon as first signs of heat stress are exhibiting.
Animals can suffer from a lot of different stress situations, like physiological stress, vaccination stress, transportation stress, etc. But the most important to counter are heat stress and oxidative stress. These can lead to a huge reduction in productivity. During heat stress, the animals have difficulty in maintaining its water and ion balance. Cells get dehydrated, and simultaneously electrolytes (as Na+, K+, Cl-) are lost. Feed intake is declined, which results in lower growth rate, as well as lower egg production and quality, reduced feed efficiency and affected immunity.
If the housing temperature in the poultry house cannot sufficiently be controlled, interventions in the diets may be the answer. By using Redustress Poultry Plus™, the amount of electrolytes in the diet is increased. This will have a positive impact on the water balance of the animal and will prevent dehydration of the animal.
During stress moments, the stock is anti-oxidants in the body is reduced. It is important to provide sufficient antioxidant to cover this increased need of anti-oxidants. By adding Redustress Poultry Plus, the stock of anti-oxidants is increased.
