Handle Stress in Poultry Farm Easily with Water-soluble vitamin C

Products from chickens, whether it’s meat or eggs, are important sources of protein for humans. The poultry industry focuses on increasing productivity through genetic improvement to enhance growth performance for maximum benefits. However, temperature adaptation remains a significant challenge. Chickens are more sensitive to heat compared to other monogastric animals because they have feathers and lack sweat glands for heat dissipation. Additionally, activities within the farm can also increase stress for chickens, such as vaccination, lighting schedules, and moving young chickens to cages. Without proper management, this can lead to adverse effects, such as reduced feed intake, increased feed conversion ratio, decreased egg production, and compromised immune function. Therefore, managing stress is another crucial aspect that needs attention.

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a vitamin known for its antioxidant properties. Due to its acidic nature, vitamin C acts as a good electron donor, stabilizing free radicals and preventing damage to cells in the body. Additionally, it reduces the secretion of the hormone corticosterone, which leads to a decrease in protein breakdown and muscle mass. This improves meat quality and enhances immune function, promoting greater efficiency of vaccinations when animals experience reduced stress. Increased feed intake due to decreased stress results in better nutrient utilization and increased productivity, leading to higher meat yield and income. Therefore, supplementing with vitamin C in poultry farming is essential. Whether in the form of standalone vitamin C products in water-soluble powder form like Zetta CM and Zetta CS for widespread and rapid absorption, or Zetta C Lyte, Zetta C Lyte Plus, and Zetta CX, which also contain sodium (Na) and potassium (K) minerals to help maintain electrolyte balance and alleviate symptoms of diarrhea. Alternatively, Zetta VITAMINO SOLUTION, containing a combination of vitamins and amino acids, is another option not to be overlooked for managing stress effectively. Vitamin C provides an additional solution that should not be underestimated.
