Best Practices & The Right Products Deliver Optimal Growing Conditions

With proper litter management, producers have the power to create an environment where birds can thrive and meet their full growth potential while minimizing feed and housing costs.

Litter management is a careful balancing act, and success will depend on daily house management practices and the tools producer’s utilize.

Understanding the Differences in Litter Amendments

There’s little value in a litter amendment that only works under certain conditions—even less if it can be detrimental to your birds. Get the whole story on two well-known options and how they can help or hinder your operation.

PLT is the Litter Management Tool Producers Rely on Most

Trusted Performance, Sustainable Practices

Beyond performance, producers trust Jones-Hamilton’s practices and dedication to sustainability.

A Life Cycle Assessment showed the product’s ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from lower energy use — plus a lower CO2 impact from smart production and distribution practices.

Safe Around Chicks

PLT is the only litter amendment safe enough to be applied with chicks in the house or at any time during growout.

Consistent Activation

PLT is known for its consistent performance, regardless of house conditions. Since it’s hydroscopic, it will pull moisture from the air and litter so activation happens in any conditions—wet or dry.

Lowers pH

PLT drops the pH of the litter to below 4.0, creating an environment that is hostile to the growth and survival of bacteria.


PLT’s main ingredient has been added to the Safer Chemical Ingredients List, as part of the EPA Safer Choice program. Unlike sulfuric acid, sodium bisulfate is Generally Regarded as Safe, follows the principles of Green Chemistry and is non-corrosive.

Complete Ammonia Control

Ammonia levels as low as 25 PPM can cost producers 19 points of weight per bird*. PLT binds the ammonia in the litter for the life of the flock to eliminate ammonia-caused challenges to performance and profit.

“I used PLT as a pad acidifier on a farm that had poor feed conversation and low weights since construction. The previous 4 flocks averaged 3.82 lbs. with a 1.76 feed conversation, but after applying PLT to the pad the flock averaged 4.13 lbs. with a 1.69 feed conversion.  I would recommend this to any grower that is having trouble!”

“I began to see lower grades and mortality spikes due to Cellulitis/Dermatitis. My Jones-Hamilton rep developed a program that helped eliminate any mortality spikes due to Dermatitis in my last four flocks.”
