ProPhorce™ AC 299 is an ideal sodium source

ProPhorce™ AC 299 is a source of sodium that is as effective as sodium bicarbonate. Importantly it also consists of formate, which in presence of protons will be converted into formic acid effectively increasing total feed acidifier content.

Optimizing Layer Performance

Using ProPhorce™ AC 299 improves a number of important parameters for layer performance and egg quality. The figure below shows the effect of sodium formate given to layers measured as percentage difference relative to a control where no product was given.

Additionally, including ProPhorce™ AC 299 will increase calcium and phosporous levels in the blood. This improves the egg shell quality without compromizing the hens metabolic balance of these ions.

Best practice

Make the most of your feed acidifier and minimize your feed costs by carefully choosing your sodium source. See the effects of two commonly used sodium sources in the figure below.

Percentage index of acids remaining in a 20 % feed in water blend measured by gas chromatography containing either:
Control - formic/lactic acid blend at 5 kg/ton of feed
SBC - Control with sodium bicarbonate at 2 kg/ton of feed
AC 299 - Control with ProPhorce™ AC 299 at 2 kg/ton of feed
