RALCO ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFERENCE
Ralco was the first company to pioneer the mainstream use of essential oils on a large scale to the livestock and poultry industries over 20 years ago. Since then, we’ve patented our approaches and learned how to ensure consistent results in your flock every time.
In the last 20 years, Ralco has acquired several patents and patents-pending on essential oils and plant extracts and their use. For the first time ever, Ralco has developed a patented formulation approach called NEXUS™ that matches up the correct levels and combinations of essential oils and plant extract properties needed to overcome a particular producer challenges like necrotic enteritis and coccidiosis.
Over the years we learned that essential oils are volatile and require the Microfusion® process to be consistent. Similar to oil and water, the gut is a liquid environment. If essential oils are not equipped with the correct delivery system, they will not make consistent contact in the gut of an animal and repel this liquid environment. Ralco essential oils are transformed through Microfusion to ensure they are stable and consistent.
Essential oils are derived from plants. Just like any crop, there's natural variability in quality based on growing seasons, geography, growing conditions, etc. This is why Ralco contracts and controls our supply with carefully selected exclusive growers to ensure consistent performance in every product.
RESEARCH PROVEN TO IMPROVE BIRD PERFORMANCE
Ralco has conducted endless university research trials and commercial trials across the world, in a range of poultry production systems, to ensure on farm consistency.
In a recent research study, birds fed Ralco essential oils outperformed birds on a traditional coccidiostat program.
