The efficacy of sodium butyrate feed additive

[Introduction]Sodium butyrate  is an organic compound. It has a great effect when used as a feed additive. Generally, the amount of sodium butyrate added to the feed is about 100-150 grams. Farmers can decide according to the physical conditions of livestock and poultry.

Sodium butyrate is commonly used asFeed additives, sodium butyrate feed additives can not only promote the intestinal development of early weaned piglets, enhance immunity, and prevent various viruses, but also improve the production performance of sows and prevent diarrhea.

The efficacy of sodium butyrate feed additive

1. Butyric acid in sodium butyrate can improve the digestion and absorption capacity of the animal intestine, sterilize and enhance immunity, and also improve the resistance of animals to the environment, so it is widely used in feed additives.

2. Sodium butyrate plays a particularly important role in pig feed. Feeding sodium butyrate to early weaned piglets can promote intestinal development, enhance immunity, and prevent various viruses.

3. The use of sodium butyrate in sows can improve production performance and prevent diarrhea. Butyrate also inhibits the growth of pathogenic microorganisms and can replace some antibiotics.

The addition amount of sodium butyrate in the feed

1. The amount of sodium butyrate added in the feed is generally about 100-150 grams, and its addition amount cannot exceed the amount of the original feed, because it is only an auxiliary agent, if it is used too much, it may not reach the level ideal effect.

2. The specific amount of addition must be determined according to the physical condition of the livestock and poultry. If the physical condition of the livestock and poultry raised is not very good, more can be added appropriately, but the dosage must be controlled.

3. When adding, it is necessary to check which animals are more sensitive to sodium butyrate. If allergic or adverse reactions occur, the use of sodium butyrate must be stopped.

4. When adding, be sure to check whether there are ingredients in the original feed that cannot be used together with sodium butyrate to avoid some adverse effects on animals.
