Improving flock performance while reducing production costs and improving animal health

Celtic Sea Minerals presents Celtical which is a unique, sustainable, plant based marine mineral complex.

Reducing production costs and improving animal health which is measured by the Poultry Efficiency Factor (PEF) is a key challenge for poultry producers.

Celtical delivers a high return on investment with an increase in poultry efficiency factor (PEF) of 5.6%.

Meta analysis over 6 studies

Based on six studies, Celtical improves Poultry Efficiency Factor by 5.6%. Two treatments were used: 1) Control, as per industry standard, and 2) Treatment, with reduced calcium level and Celtical inclusion. The Celtical treatment groups were based on the recommendations for Celtical inclusion

Of the PEF, Celtical improved the factors:

Celtical is a unique sustainable plant-based marine mineral complex sustainably sourced from seaweeds harvested from the nutrient rich North Atlantic waters. It contains high amounts of marine calcium and magnesium alongside 72 trace minerals. Celtical’s marine minerals are held within a unique polysaccharide complex which reduces its interaction with phosphorus for best health and performance.

Celtical Mode of Action

Celtical removes interactions by reducing calcium interactions. Marine polysaccharide bound marine calcium reduces the negative interaction with available phosphorus, increasing bioavailability of both minerals. With greater bioavailability of calcium and phosphorus, inclusion of calcium can be dropped by 20% with no negative impact on bone strength. This also improves FCR.

Recommended Inclusion

Add 2.5 kg/ per tonne in all phases. Add 2 kg/per tonne in the finisher phase. Formulate the product into the diet and reduce total calcium levels by 20%.
