Dear Sir,

You have done an excellent work on the benefits of using the Organis acids as a

growth promoter in Commercial broilers.Your authenticated data will help & promote

the farmers/integrators & poultry technicians to shift on organic acids instead of

using gut acting antibiotics or antibiotic growth promoters.

Thanks & regards,

Dr Jaydip Mulik

Congratulaions to All of you on doing such a benificial work.

I must say this is a great effort to produce healthy & safe meat for human consumption. These organic acids are safer than antibiotic growth promoters. No tension of withdrawl periods or side effect etc.

can you tell me what is the upper limit to use these acids?

Organic acids play some essential role in food digestion process and sometimes some over the top addition in feed during some harsh conditions and to promote protection against intestinal diseases, proved very useful.

This research further strengthen the role of organic acids positively and authors must be praised for their work not only because it is an important issue but also due to conditions in Indian held Kashmir. Despite all the atrocities and war like situation, the work of these scientists are commendable.
