Salmonellosis is one of the most dreadful diseases in poultry. Salmonella bacteria are capable of causing enteritis and septicemia in young birds. The route of infection is oral and morbidity is generally very high. Plus, the susceptibility of vertical transmission makes it a potent threat to breeder farms.
Feed-borne infections can be avoided by using Sal CURB. It is a blend of organic acids with formaldehyde. The product also contains a surfactant component, which allows the organic acids to distribute uniformly and thoroughly on the feed particles. Kemin applies it to the feed through a state-of-the-art applicator, coating around the feed particles, killing the existing microbes, and protecting it from recontamination.
Sal CURB is available in the following variations:
- Sal CURB ASF – This product is designed to have a rapid action on the pathogens. It includes anti-microbial compounds, organic acids, and surfactant. It is specifically used in situations where the feed has more microbial load and the feed storage period is less. The recommended applied rate is 1kg/ ton of feed.
- Sal CURB Liquid – A complete hygiene programme for breeder feed, comprised of organic acids and surfactant. With a sustained effect on the feed, Sal CURB Liquid is suitable for feeds where the storage period is more than a week. It can keep the feed salmonella-free for up to 21 days. The recommended application rate is 2kg per ton of feed.
- Sal CURB RMS – This product is a part of a programme for raw material treatment for eliminating the pathogenic bacteria.
