I'm researching how much tumeric to add to feed to boost immnue systems - I have mareks in the flock and it wipes out immune systems. Not sure tumeric will help, but can't hurt. Question is how much tumeric is needed? Found some ag studies where 5% levels of tumeric to feed were the best (better than none, 1 %, 2.5% and more). I'm not good at math, what does that translate to? I measure feed in scoops, a scoop is 4 cups, so 5% of 4 is.... also found this: Dosage for Small Animals: Dried herb: 50-600mg/kg, divided daily, three times per day, to maximum palatability tolerance. Decoction: 5-30g per cup of water, administered at a rate of 1/4 - 1/2 cup per 10kg, divided daily (optimally 3 times per day), and diluted or combined with other herbs. Higher doses may be appropriate if the herb is used singly and is not combined in a formula. I like the idea of the water dose, as I can add that to the mash easily. grams.... anyone use tumeric and what dose?
