The main benefit of ProPhorce® AC 299, in addition to the benefits gained by applying an acidifier, is the ability to optimize the dietary electrolyte balance (dEB). In growing animals - such as swine and broilers - optimizing the dietary electrolyte balance enhances animal performance. A positive electrolyte balance has scientifically shown to enhance the growth rate of farm animals.
ProPhorce® AC 299 has consistently shown to enhance animal performance in piglet growth experiments (see graph below).
Feed intake, weight gain and FCR 1-4 weeks after weaning. ProPhorce® AC 299 enhances weight gain and improves the feed conversion ratio significantly. Bars with different superscript (a,b) differ significantly (P<0.05).
ProPhorce® AC 299 combines the advantages of an acidifier with the ability to manage the electrolyte balance and the antibacterial properties of the formic acid anion. Including ProPhorce® AC 299 in the feed can give a significant reduction of the variable feed cost accompanied with an improved animal performance.
