Stockhealth Double Strength Apple Cider Vinegar

There are many recorded benefits to the use of Apple Cider Vinegar for most of your farm animals including farm dogs, chickens and other poultry. The apple cider causes an alkaline effect in the animal which may help fight or reduce the likelihood of new or existing conditions. Once again we are unable to publish on the website what these are but we are more than happy to assist you if you contact us either by email or phone.

Apple Cider Vinegar is full of vitamins, minerals and trace elements.

There are some observations by farmers that use Apple Cider Vinegar that it increases egg production. Whilst there are no formal studies that prove this, it would still make sense that if you are keeping a hen in good health, she will perform better.

For your farm dog, it helps to keep them healthy on the inside but you can also use it as a rinse after a bath to reduce irritation caused by skin allergies, fleas or ringworms.

Stockhealth provides 2 variants of their apple cider vinegar product suitable for your farm animals - Traditional Apple Cider Vinegar and Apple Cider Vinegar with Garlic.
