We have been rearing Turkeys for the Christmas market for over 60 years. Four years ago we used Avian Health for the first time. During this period thanks to the quick efficient analysis of the feather samples sent to Crossgates, we have eradicated the need for vaccines & anti-biotic's in the flock.

This is the second flock on which we have used the Feather Care & Aconite mix. The flock settles down very soon after adding the mix to the water. Easy to add & no problems with the water supply make this an excellent product.
Anne Roberts ( Organic flock of 2,000 Lohman Browns )
I have now been using Crossgates products for 8 or 9 years & continue to be impressed by the results we get. We use Crossgates products for specific problems, & the results have always been outstanding. We have encountered specific problems in rear & with the help of Crossgates products we have been able to tackle these with great confidence. The service is always first class & all their staff are helpful & courteous. A very good company to deal with, & results to match!
Giles Henry ( Oakwood Mill )
The best feather cover out of 9 flocks over the last 4 years due to using the Feather Care Remedy.
Phil Crawley ( Sun Rise Eggs )
Aconite is brilliant, Feather Care an outstanding product, Avian Health is the best health product ever, Redmite remedy is wonderful. If in doubt give Crossgates a shout!
Steve Wilkinson ( Paradise Farm )
We first used the Flock Specific Avian Health Remedy, with good results. We found out that the birds were short of Amino Acids found in fishmeal. Crossgates came up with the remedy to beat all remedies, Feather Care, as soon as the birds were given this our losses were down from 8 to 10 birds a week to 1 or 2, & these birds were not being cannibalised.

What Our Turkey Clients Say
Using Avian Health (Turkey) Flock Specific has given us good healthy organic birds and no worries. The birds showed no stress and converted their feed well. Before killing we used Avian Calmer for 4 days and the birds were much better to catch, they plucked brilliantly and their meat was great, I am sure it was the calm atmosphere created at killing. We will certainly be ordering again this year.
Peter Cheek, Farm Manager, Godminster Farms, Somerset
We started using Avian Health (Turkey) 4 years ago and have had no cases of Blackhead since. Mortality has been 1 bird in 150, less than 1%, it was always higher before using Avian Health. Plucking has been easier because they were better feathered and had a good bloom. We would not like to be without Avian Health for rearing our turkeys.
Carson Lee and family, Far Laithe Farm, Keighley
We have had the healthiest and heaviest turkeys we have ever had. We have never had them do better and I will certainly be using the product again in 2008.
