Gut health challenges for poultry

Optimizing the results of poultry productions requires poultry professionals to be aware of a plethora of challenges that can hopefully be avoided or otherwise their impact needs to be expertly reduced.

Pathogens are a risk to welfare, performance and food safety while Necrotic Enteritis and coccidia may be an even more disastrous threat. All of that needs to be navigated while trying to keep the use of antibiotics to a responsible minimum.

Antibiotic reduction

Antibiotics are undoubtedly one of mankind’s most valuable discovery. They help us - and farm animals - to fight diseases, pathogens etc. They also improve the growth performance of animals. We depend on them so much that antibiotic resistance is one of this century’s biggest concerns for mankind. more about antibiotic reduction >>

Coccidia & NE

When Eimeria (Coccidia) and Clostridium perfringens (Necrotic enteritis) work together they can be the arch enemy of poultry health, performance and as a consequence your profitability. The good news is that there are ways to get ahead of these problems to minimize losses. How? The answers lie in the digestive tract.

Egg shell quality

Improved egg shell quality can mean more intact eggs to the consumer. Bacteria contamination in day old chicks is closely related to egg shell quality where the shell is a barrier to microorganism that prevents them from passing into the egg. Gut health has a proven effect on egg shell quality. Our trials with ProPhorce™ SR have supported that by showing better results in field trials. Read more about the trials here >>
