Key To Raising Antibiotic Free Poultry: Good BioSecurity!

Summer Is Here

Summer has officially arrived and with it has come the hot dry weather. Here in the Southeast we have not had significant rain to help relieve us from this brutal heat. Multiple problems will start arriving that you need to be mindful of. Checking your ventilation equipment should be top on your priority list. You will want to make sure all fans are working properly, thermostats are calibrated, and cool cell pads are clean. Cool Cells can quickly become dirty or clogged especially if not properly maintained. If you are running well water over your pads be careful too, as the summer continues and rainfall stays away, wells will get lower and this could mean more minerals(clay, calcium, iron, etc) in your water. Constantly be checking your water quality and make sure to keep a good cleaner circulating onto your pads. PronTech Poultry is perfect for this application. 1 jar per house to start off with and then just 4-5 scoops once a week to help prevent algae growth and to help keep your pads nice and clean.
