Broiler producers are challenged to improve production while using fewer antibiotics.
Small changes in Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) at any given feed price will have a substantial impact on financial margins. Preventing or solving FCR problems in a flock requires both good management and nutrition optimization. The key to prevent FCR problems
is ensuring that throughout the brooding and growing period intestinal efficiency is preserved and granted. Among dismicrobism effects: clostridium p. (necrotic enteritis) and Enteric Salmonella infections. Salmonella is the second-most frequently reported
zoonotic disease of humans in the European Union, being responsible for significant human illness. Salmonella is widespread in domestic and wild animals, and commercial broiler flocks are a large reservoir. When flocks become infected on the farm, Salmonella
is usually carried asymptomatically in the gastrointestinal tract of the birds and may consequently be transferred to processed carcasses via faecal contamination. Salmonella causes significant loss of productivity and mortality in commercial broiler flocks.
The product is a mixture of Short and Medium Chain Monoglycerides developed for keeping the optimal gut efficiency to achieve better FCR and to avoid intestinal dismicrobism as well. The product is available in liquid form to be used in feed or drinking water,
or in powder form to be used in dry feed (pellets, mash feed and premix)
