www.neospark.com ASE: After observing the benefits of Ultra-Vite M, US CuraTox, Piperazine, Nemetex L, Bonnysol, based on the goodwill on company and products, our premium customer has started using spectra DFM. However we develop and introduce a product based on research and trial reports, it will get real success only when the bird responses optimally in terms of production at farm level. In that way, now we are going to hear the success story of Spectra DFM from our valuable customer. Kindly introduce yourself sir. Customer 1: My name is Devaraj, RTS poultry farm, Namakkal district, Rasipuram, Masakkaalipatty. Including me, four of my partners are having 1.5 lakh birds. Before, we used to use 80% Tiamulin on every batch of chicks arrival. Otherwise, as a preventive measure, we happened to use monthly program of antibiotic right from fourth week. Recently for three batches, as we thought the birds are getting more disturbed, we started using Spectra DFM (Probiotic). I have tried for 6 batches which include two numbers of 8000 batches, two numbers of 12000 batches and two numbers of 8000 batches. First batch reached 25 weeks, we did not use any antibiotic for that batch right from day old, but we are providing probiotic (Spectra DFM) 3 week onwards at the rate of 100gm/ ton. Till Now, no disease outbreak is observed. ASE: About probiotic, let us hear from another customer with introduction. Customer 2: My Name is sundarajan, RTS Poultry farm, Masakkaalipatty, having 50,000 birds. I am using spectra DFM for the last 2 batches; both batches are antibiotic free, showing good results. In my perception, we should not use probiotic without having adequate knowledge on it, so I surf in the internet about probiotic, in abroad practice of using probiotic has been started since 1992 itself, then I realized that it seems very late in india. My personal opinion is that If all the farmers start using probiotic, it would be more beneficial in terms of disease management. ASE : At what dose level , are you using Spectra DFM? Customer 1: I am using third week onwards, first week I used @ 150 g/ton of feed, then subsequently used @ 100gm/ton of feed. First batch completed successfully its 25 week of age without disease outbreak. Ase : you are saying, 100gm/ ton of feed, did you pay any special attention for mixing? Yes, Proper mixing should be ensured, first we take 100gm Spectra DFM then we used to mix with 1kg of calcite powder, after that we keep and add that mix separately and extend the mixing time 2 min. extra. That will make the mixing more efficient and reach individual birds properly. ASE : Full in charge of mixing is taken care by Mr.Senthil, who is managing the feed mill activities. ASE : So you are supplementing from third to twenty fifth week, How do you observe benefits? Customer 1 : Before, While using antibiotic as a monthly program, it costs around Rs.28,000/10000 batch, but for Spectra DFM, up to 25th week, we spent only Rs 4100. Major benefits, I personally observed are reduced number of mortality than before, no disease outbreak viz., Choric respiratory disesase , Colibacillosis (E.Coli), feed intake also saved up to 3-4 gm. After starting probiotic in feed, we observed no disease outbreak and regular mortality is very meager. ASE: Did the competitor approach for antibiotic medication? Customer 1 : yes, they did, but we told that we stopped antibiotic because of probiotic usage. ASE : now we heard that Rs 28000 expense incur for 10000 batch up tp 20 weeks, let us get information from that farmer? Customer 2: maximum we spend Rs 5000 for 10000 batch @ 100 dosage, if it is @ 50gm, then it would be half, it is better to provide @ 100gm/ton of feed up to grower. ASE : So, in Rs 25000 if we less 5000, Rs 20000 we can get as guaranteed profit. Customer 1 : even, we are getting profit in reduced number of mortality, one more thing, when we provide probiotic from fourth week, compulsorily we have to provide Vitamin E and Selenium (Perivac plus) @ 250gm/ton for better immune response. Once after laying is started, either we give vitamin premix or UltraVite M forte, we have to provide extra of 1kg UltraVite M (3.5 kg) or 250gm of premix (0.75kg) in order to extend and maintain the peak production (24 ñ 30 weeks). Combination of Perivac plus, Spectra DFM and extra allowance of forte or premix will definitely make the birds disease free, high producing and more profitable. ASE : Now you using from 5th week, what do you plan for next batch? Customer 1 :For the forthcoming batch, we are planning to give from day old to 15 days in the form of water soluble ( Spectrasol DFM) hence we are using crumble feed for first 3 weeks, then third week onwards , we will continue in own feed @ 100gm up to 30 weeks, then in laying we plan to reduce @ 50gm/ton of feed. ASE : Did you share these benefits to your partners and nearby farmers? Yes, we shared this information to our partners, farmers. Possibly, when everyone is using the product, all will get benefited and spreading of disease from nearby farms also will come to an end for the sure. ASE : How do you conclude this information? Customer 1: Hereafter I wonít stop using this probiotic product. If surrounding farmers are used, they can also observe all these benefits, spreading of disease is controlled effectively. ASE : Heart full thanks, sir, Our valuable customer has shifted Spectra DFM from medicine column to raw material column and assured that hereafter he wonít prepare chick and grower feed without probiotic. As I told earlier, however we develop and introduce a product based on research and trail report, it will get real success when the response is observed at field level In terms of production. In that aspect, so far we heard the success story of Spectra DFM from our premium customer. Thank you all.
