Normally, this flock is when our floors are at their wettest from all the fogging we’ve done thru the summer. But this year, my litter is the driest it has ever been. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

As a turkey grower, I was going into another winter flock just knowing the ammonia in my range houses was going to be rough. I was told about IndigoLT® during the summer, but like other growers I was afraid to give it a try. They told me it would help on ammonia and keep my floors dryer. I dumped turkeys in mid-December with already damp floors. After applying IndigoLT® before birds were placed, I tilled the product in. I tilled weekly for the next ten weeks. The IndigoLT® made the ammonia in my houses a day and night difference from previous winter flocks. My litter is dust dry after one flock. Another positive about IndigoLT® is that it is not harming the equipment in my houses unlike other products do. It’s all natural material and won’t corrode or deteriorate equipment.”

I’ve been using the IndigoLT® for the last couple of years in my chicken operation. By my calculations, I’m saving between $4,000 and $8,000/year on propane because I’m simply not having to pull the ammonia out of the houses like I used to. It’s the best product I’ve ever used on litter and I won’t raise birds without it.”

I started using NutriZyme® about one and a half years ago. At that time, I was becoming concerned about the limited use of antibiotics. Some of the issues I was facing… birds going off feed at 3-4 weeks old, my mortality was going up, and the birds were very sizey. This last issue continued until market time creating birds that weighed anywhere from 8 to 16 lbs. We began by spraying the feedlines with NutriZyme®. We observed that the birds responded very well to the product and we started to see fewer gut issues in the birds. With less gut issues and the birds not going off feed, this meant more profit at settlement time. Having seen positive results from the NutriZyme® feed additive, we also began to treat the litter with IndigoLT®. This treatment was to reinforce the placement of good enzymes in the birds’ environment, while slowing the ammonia and keeping the litter dryer. At this time, both products are in use with positive results in bird performance and profit in the flock settlements. Also, I have not had to use any antibiotics in the last year.”

One of the reasons I use IndigoLT® is that it is a good alternative for ammonia control without the caustic traits of conventional products. IndigoLT® controls ammonia without introducing acid to the poultry house environment and helps the health of the bird.”

This year I started using IndigoLT® in my poultry houses and I absolutely love the product. I spray the product on the litter and then till it in. By doing this, and keeping on a schedule for tilling, the product helps to reduce the smell of ammonia and it keeps the litter dryer. It also seems to help combat cellulitis. If you do get cellulitis it seems to help on mortality. I don’t lose near as many birds as I used to. I will definitely keep using the products.”

When we first started raising chickens 18 years ago, we tried several products to help with the litter problems. Nothing worked until we tried IndigoLT®. We followed their directions to apply. After first flock using the AgriGro® product we knew it worked. It cut labor time, cost, ammonia, and mortality rates. The litter was like walking on sand. Every poultry person that walked into the house was amazed. The litter remained dry to the clay floor. This makes the litter cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. We have recently retired, but we used the product for 13.5 years.”
