pHorce A by Anpario is a combination acid product offering:
Concentrated liquid acid in powder form;
pHorce contains formic acid which is effective against enveloped viruses such as avian bird flu;
Formic acid can inactivate enveloped viruses within 24 hours;
pHorce assists in maintaining a high level of biosecurity as a result of its antibacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties.
In-feed antibacterial efficacy of pHorce trial
In the feedmill formic acid is now classified as a bacterial decontaminating agent including but not limited to salmonella, to improve feed hygiene (Feed Additive Register 2017/940). pHorce helps control levels of potentially harmful bacteria that may be present in the feed or raw materials which can impair animal performance.
As part of Anpario’s acid-based eubiotics range, pHorce is a concentrated blend of pure liquid formic and propionic acids on a unique mineral carrier delivery system – chosen to ensure maximum efficacy during feed manufacture and throughout the gastrointestinal tract.
An independent trial was conducted at Abbott Analytical in the UK to test the antibacterial efficacy of pHorce using their standard protocol. Five inclusion rates of pHorce were assessed, 0 (control), 2, 4, 8 and 12kg per tonne were added to a standard commercial layer mash, artificially contaminated with test organisms.
Bacterial counts (cfu/g) were measured at four, 24, 48 and 72 hours after application and incubated at 36C ± 1C. The inclusion of pHorce required for effective bacterial decontamination is related to the microbial load, therefore regular microanalysis of raw materials is recommended.
pHorce is effective in controlling bacterial activity in finished feed with a preservative action and can help control levels of bacteria that negatively affect animal performance. The recommendation is minimum pHorce inclusion and time required to obtain for log two reduction (95 percent reduction).
The full trial method is available on request.
