Litter substrates
and additives

Litter substrates can
bond humidity, dust and odors,
helping to keep down overall
emissions.
Additives, such as activated
biochar, lime and chalk, and
herbal additives and essential
oils, among others, seek to
optimize the litter, helping to
slow microbe proliferation,
retain moisture, stabilize the
broilers' gut and reduce the
need for antibiotics, and improve footpad health.
Litter additives not only improve performance through reducing ammonia and dust, but
can improve manure through
reducing nitrogen losses.

Feed additives

Limiting the crude
protein available in diets
will limit the amount broilers
excrete, so reducing the amount
available to bacteria and converted
into ammonia.
Various additives are available
that can be administered via feed
or drinking water that can achieve
this, limiting the ammonia in the
broilers' environment.

Controlling
moisture and
temperature

If litter can be kept dry, through
under-floor heating, for example, then the growth of nitrifying bacteria will be limited.
However, there are instances

where additional moisture is
needed, and water fumigation
systems and spray coolers can additionally bind dust, so reducing
the dust load present in the air.
These systems can also distribute

additives to reduce ammonia and
odors. Use of heat exchangers
also reduce respirable dust.
Dust, microorganisms and
odors can also be bound through
ionization of dust particles. ■

No small feat.

The new Konavi Feeder gives birds
easy access to feed without stepping in it.
™

The Konavi™ Feeding System is a
breakthrough in global broiler feeding.
It features an angled cone with antirake fins that helps keep birds out of
the feeder to maintain fresh, clean
feed. With its low pan height and
patented scalloped edge, the Konavi Feeder invites chicks to eat
from the pan from day one and gives birds comfortable, easy access
to feed throughout their growth cycle. Plus, the streamlined design
permits more complete cleaning between flocks for better bird
health. The new Konavi Feeder lets beaks in, and helps keep feet out.
