What are the benefits of adding yucca extract to broiler farming

The amount of poultry breeding is increasing. The harmful gases such as ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, and skatole produced by poultry and urine in poultry production, as well as the nitrogen and phosphorus in the excrement and urine, have polluted the air, soil and water. The breeding environment of poultry is seriously polluted, and the incidence of poultry respiratory diseases is increased.


Yucca extract  is a substance extracted from Yucca plants. It contains steroidal saponins, polysaccharides and polyphenols and other main active ingredients. It has a strong adsorption capacity for harmful gases and can reduce ammonia and sulfide in livestock and poultry houses. The mass concentration of hydrogen and other gases can improve the animal feeding environment. What are the effects of yucca extract as a deodorant on the performance of broilers and the concentration of ammonia in the house?


1. Adding yucca extract to broiler diets reduces the feed-to-weight ratio, improves feed utilization, and accelerates the growth rate of broilers. The mortality and incidence of ascites in broilers decreased. The yucca extract in the broiler diet can accelerate the absorption of nutrients by the broiler and improve the production performance of the broiler. Yucca extract can change the morphology of the intestinal epithelial cell membrane: the saponin in the yucca extract can form a complex with cholesterol on the intestinal epithelial cell membrane and remove it, thereby increasing the permeability of the cell membrane and contributing to nutrition The transport of ingredients promotes the absorption of some nutrients that cannot otherwise pass through the intestinal wall. The saponin in the yucca extract is a kind of natural detergent, which has the function of intestinal cleansing agent. It removes the garbage adhering to the intestinal mucosa, and at the same time, it can delay the passage speed of the contents of the digestive tract and improve the digestibility . Yucca extract can increase the villi length and mucosal thickness of broiler duodenum and jejunum, thereby enhancing the absorption of nutrients by the small intestine.


2. Adding yucca extract to the diet of broilers can significantly reduce the mass concentration of ammonia in the chicken house and improve the air condition in the chicken house. Yucca extract has special physiological functions and can absorb certain harmful gases. Yucca extract is a urease inhibitor that inhibits the production of ammonia in urine. Yucca extract can help microorganisms use ammonia to form microbial protein and reduce the production of ammonia in feces and urine. Yucca saponins and polysaccharides can reduce the ammonia content of feces and urine in intestinal contents through adsorption, and improve the internal environment of animals. Yucca extract can also prevent the nitrification of nitrogen in feces and urine, allowing nitrogen to exist in the form of inorganic substances, reducing ammonia emissions into the atmosphere.


Summary: Adding yucca extract (Jiyoulan) to broiler diets reduces the ratio of feed to meat, improves feed utilization, promotes the absorption of nutrients, improves the production performance of broilers, and reduces the mortality rate of broilers. The yucca extract (Jiyoulan) of Herunde Biology reduces the mass concentration of ammonia in the chicken house, improves the air condition in the chicken house, and reduces environmental pollution.
