Two new products, providing improved animal performance through control of enterobacteria and natural insect control have been launched by Optivite, one of the UK’s largest animal nutrition companies.
Red-Lite is a naturally occurring compound, active against most common external parasites such as red chicken mite and northern fowl mite. It rapidly reduces both infestation and irritation as well as the transmission of bacterial disease and insect damage to feed grains.
“Composed of naturally occurring diatoms, Red-Lite is non toxic to humans and animals and approved by both the EU and also for organic farming,” said Richard Remmer. “It is a natural non-chemical insecticide which is ideal for use in animal housing and feed storage areas.”
“We are hugely excited by the launch of both these new products,” said Optivite’s Richard Remmer. “They are designed to complement the non-hazardous, drug free animal products which maintain and enhance the quality of feed which Optivite has offered since it was founded in 1987.”
Optimax aids animal performance through improving digestive capability. It has a proven higher efficacy than liquid acids and is safer and easier to use. Optimax is also ideal for use via premixes or direct to feed.
“Containing high levels of carboxylic acids and salts, Optimax has a high potency against Gram negative pathogens,” said Optivite’s Technical Manager Richard Remmer. “It is extremely cost effective and improves animal performance both through control of enterobacteria and through promoting a favourable microbial environment.”
