Oct 7, 2021

NAGA News, the bi-monthly magazine published by the North American Gamebird Association, featured BIOTANIX® WS, a bacterial inoculant used to control the microbial ecosystem in the litter.

(York, Pa., October 7, 2021) York Ag, a dynamic supplier of holistic ingredient solutions that optimize animal well-being, shared that one of its partners of choice in natural ingredients, Probiotech, was featured in the September/October 2021 issue of the North American Gamebird Association’s NAGA News Magazine. The article titled “Why Should We Control the Microbial Ecosystem in the Litter?”, written by Ivan Girard, PH.D., PAS, R&D Manager, and President of Probiotech International Inc., covered why the litter and pens are the biggest reservoir of bacteria in a gamebird farm, and how these negative developments can be avoided by applying specific bacterial inoculants, such as BIOTANIX® WS.

York Ag is an authorized distributor of Probiotech’s natural feed additives, water additives, and litter additives for conventional, ABF, and organic programs for livestock animals. BIOTANIX® WS is a natural litter amendment designed to regulate the litter microbiome. “The litter and pens are the biggest reservoir of bacteria in a poultry or gamebird farm. BIOTANIX WS is an effective, natural alternative to reduce pathogen growth in the litter”, said Ivan Girard, President of Probiotech International Inc.

In a poultry or gamebird operation, it is vital for producers to be aware of the major physical, chemical, and biological changes of the litter when animals are present. Producers can then control these changes to avoid health problems and prevent the deterioration of housing conditions. “We are proud to carry Probiotech’s natural ingredients portfolio and BIOTANIX WS is an example of problem-solving everyday challenges with natural and tested products”, said Bill Achor, President and CEO of York Ag.

The North American Gamebird Association’s mission is to protect, promote and sustain a positive environment in which game bird producers and hunting preserve operators can grow their businesses through monitoring and influencing of legislation, informing and educating its members on current industry trends and issues, and promoting and sustaining our hunting heritage through increased public awareness.
