High Temperatures when coupled with high humidity can be very dangerous to turkey. Excess of heat can cause interference in production efficiency and comfort. Heat is a major problem which can cause significant economic loss. High temperature or fluctuating of temperature is more detrimental for turkey which can increase the mortality rate, depressed feed intake and retarded growth. As the temperature rises the bird starts to pant to get rid out of the heat load by the process of evaporation. The process of Evaporation through panting is the major mechanism for controlling the temperature of the body under heat stress. The panting is accompanied with increase in respiratory rates. With the increased rate of respiration, it causes higher loss of carbon dioxide results in increased pH in blood and disturbance in acid-base balance. In this process the bird loss excess water and essential minerals out from the body with this panting process. A decreased volume of water in the body reduces the ability to dissipate heat. Reduction of water in intracellular adds further stress to the bird. By understanding and identifying dietary and management treatment we can effectively minimize the risk of loss of water and electrolytes from the body. We can use electrolyte supplement which helps in providing all kinds of minerals to the body. Electrocool is one of the widely used electrolyte supplement which contains all essential minerals that is very effective in heat stress condition and electrolyte deficiency. It contains sodium chloride, potassium chloride, sodium citrate, Dextrose, magnesium suplhate for better health.
