Ralco has launched Avi-Lyte, a natural stress pack to hydrate and restore vital nutrients for poultry during times of stress with transition, placement and heat stress. This is the latest product in Ralcoโ€™s growing organic line, which includes animal health and nutrition, crop enhancement, hay and silage preservative products.

By utilizing natural components, Avi-Lyte is research proven to reduce death loss in times of stress. A field trial with an egg integrator showed improved livability when Avi-Lyte was given at placement over a custom vitamin mix. The mortality rate for the flock using the custom vitamin mix was 4.6%. Mortality rate for chicks on Avi-Lyte was significantly lower at 1.9%, meaning death loss was reduced by more than 50% with the use of Avi-Lyte.

Heat stress and the factors associated with it cost the United States poultry industry an estimated US$128 million to US$165 million annually.
