Shake well. On day 1 and 2, run 12 ounces of Mother Load per gallon of water in a medicator bucket set at 1:128. For the next 2 weeks, run 12 ounces per gallon of water for one 24 hour period per week.
Through the rest of the grow-out, run 6 ounces per gallon of water for one 24 hour period per week.
For best results, alternate Mother Load and Big ole Bird with 3 days between the products.
*Do not apply with a probiotic like Big Ole Bird, as this will kill the beneficial bacteria. If applying Mother Load, apply Big ole Bird immediately after use.
Dosage often varies per source. Note that all vinegar is not the same strength. Mother Load is 60 grain vinegar and considerably stronger than what you would typically purchase in a grocery store.
Mother Load is recommended at 15ml per quart of drinking water. This is equal to one tablespoon per gallon.
**No refrigeration necessary. Do not allow product to freeze or exceed 130 °F.
Mother Load is raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar infused with garlic, designed to boost your birds’ overall health.
Most vinegar used by growers today is filtered, which means the “mother” is no longer present—but the “mother” is actually the most beneficial element of vinegar! That’s why we call our ACV “Mother Load.” The “mother” is a naturally occurring powerhouse of beneficial microbes that occurs in the fermentation process of vinegar production. Mother Load aids in digestion, keeps the digestive tract healthy and provides bacteria that support poultry development. It is beneficial as a dietary fiber and helps birds naturally balance the pH in their guts. This cuts mucus to increase nutrient uptake, which is key in high poultry performance.
