How do I use CI 3-4 Poultry?

We recommend that you administer CI 3-4 Poultry through the drinking water. However, there may be some times where spraying is necessary. You can find instructions on both methods here.

Drinking water application:

Broilers: Mix 2 oz. of CI 3-4 Poultry per one gallon of clean water in the dosing machine, administered for 4 hours daily.

Breeders: Mix 2 oz. of CI 3-4 Poultry per one gallon of clean water in the dosing machine, DURING THE FEEDING PERIOD EACH DAY, for approximately 3 -4 hours.

DO NOT mix any disinfectant or chlorinated water with CI 3-4 Poultry. Any kind of disinfectant can slow down or stop the microbial action.


Spraying:

Why should you spray? Here's one farm that did.

Farm ABC had serious problems with E. Coli, and were losing birds at a fairly rapid rate.

In House A, they had 20,300 birds at 4 weeks of age. The birds were dying from E. Coli at the rate of 7.5 per 1,000 (150 birds per day).

After spraying, mortality dropped to 134 the next day, and 50 the following day. The grower culled the flock over the next two days, so it shot back up to 150, then 136 per day. However, at 5 weeks of age, mortality has maintained a level of 51 birds per day.

In House B, they had 20,300 birds at 4 weeks of age. The birds were dying from E. Coli at 4.5/1,000 (91 birds per day).

After spraying, mortality dropped to 83 the first day, and continuted to drop to 35, 40, 47, 40, and 34 for the next five days. At 5 weeks, mortality now runs at 1.25 - 1.5 per day.

As an added precaution, these houses were sprayed again at 36 days.

The reasons for spraying at any age is determined by the health condition of the birds. It has been found that spraying is very effective in controlling the effect of clostridium and the effects of E. Coli, if diagnosed in its early stage. It has been found that the program of starting CI 3-4 Poultry in the water at a day old greatly reduces the need for spraying at a later age.


Directions for Spraying CI 3-4 Poultry

To spray:

  1. Mix 32 ounces (946 ml) to approximately 350 ounces (10.35 liters) of unchlorinated water in a 3 gallon backpack sprayer.
  2. Use one tank per 10,000 birds. Spray throughout the entire house, including over the birds, as you walk slowly through the house.
  3. It is recommended that fans be turned off and the house closed during application. It takes approximately 20 - 25 minutes to spray a 16,000 square foot house (20,000 capacity).

IMPORTANT: Fans must be turned on and the house returned to the condition it was in before spraying.
