Animal Feed Acidifiers

Uniquely formulated and high performance Feed Acidifiers

Feed acidifiers help promote healthy growth in animals by controlling harmful bacteria and improving digestion, which can help guard against disease.

Feed acidifiers are becoming increasingly prevalent in poultry production and pig farming. Yara's Bolifor® is designed for the best performance as a feed additive.

Yara feed acidifiers offer a unique formula of organic acids precisely absorbed onto a patented carrier made of diatomaceous earth, itself coated by sorbic acid. The coating technology allows the slow release of acids in the gut without compromising its effectiveness as a feed preservative. This means the nutrients are available for longer in the gut. As they don't disappear on the first stages of digestion, they are available until the very end of the process, being more efficient than other feed acidifiers

The formulation optimizes each component, including the carrier, and all components bring advantages to the final product.

The advantages of Yara acidifiers

You can expect consistent high-quality and purity in a fully traceable product that is safe and easy to use.

The diatomaceous earth carrier in Bolifor® FA products has been carefully selected for its unique characteristics and properties. It has the following advantages as a carrier:

  • Less acid is required for the same effect than with conventional silica carrier
  • Strong granules can resist storage pressure
  • Target and slow release properties ensure that the solid acid products are less pungent, more user friendly and less corrosive in equipment
  • High efficacy is offered over a longer period of time because of the slow release properties
  • Effective when used to reduce wet droppings and absorb excessive gases in swine and poultry
  • The added benefit of toxin binding (especially that of aflatoxins)
