What is Allicin Plus?
Allicin is a natural compound extracted from garlic. The compound is formed naturally when garlic is crushed, and is part of the plant’s defense mechanism against insects and other pests.
When ingested by livestock allicin is excreted through the animal’s breath and skin, assisting in the reduction of fly, tick and lice burden.
Olsson's have stabilised the allicin compound by combining other natural ingredients and have added it to the16% High Sulphur block and 16% High Sulphur + Trace Elements block, creating supplements with a wide range of benefits.
These benefits include encouraging optimal microbial growth and ammonia balance, deriving essential nutrients from dry and fibrous feeds, and helping repel flies, ticks and lice. Producers currently feeding a sulphur supplement, a urea supplement, and who are drenching now have a 1 stop, natural, shop. Olsson's 16% High Sulphur + Allicin block eliminates the need for separate supplementation and drenching programs, while providing an effective, natural and ongoing solution to fly, tick and lice burden. In trials, this formulation has reduced the burden to less than 100 flies per animal (the threshold to drench). Patent pending.
This block has the potential to be a real game changer.
Approximate Consumption rates will be anywhere between 30 – 60gms per head per day
