Researcher at Iowa State University (USA), Emily Branstad, presented a scientific poster on "Supplementation with Alquerfeed Antitox for the reduction of aflatoxin M1 in milk and biomarkers of liver function in dairy cows", at the annual meeting of the American Dairy Science Association (ADSA), which took place June 24th-27th in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Biovet S.A. will participate with a stand at the XXV Central American and Caribbean Poultry Congress to be held from August 21st to 23rd in San Pedro Sula (Honduras). During the event, technical conferences on poultry health, genetics, production and environmental management will be held. Visitors will find the manufacturer of natural additives Biovet S.A. at booth number 5, where they can learn the latest developments in the product lines: preservatives, pronutrients and mycotoxin binders.
The aim of the trial was to determine if a preservative Alquermold Natural (cimenol ring) at different concentrations (1000, 700, 400 and 200 ppm) could inactivate Clostridium perfringens after contact times of 10 minutes, 20 minutes, 60 minutes, and 24 hours.
The ability of intestinal optimizer pronutrients, Alquernat Zycox to prevent coccidiosis was evaluated in males of the Castellana negra breed, a laying breed, in comparison with chemical coccidiostats and a vaccine against coccidia. The study was carried out in two parts: first, animals were naturally infested and, secondly, animals were artificially infested with coccidia.
During gestation and lactation, the feed received by the sow is changed according to the phase, and each one has very specific characteristics. This can cause digestive problems in animals, such as the proliferation of pathogenic microorganisms.
It has been seen that the proliferation of toxigenic bacteria at a digestive level can affect the productive parameters in sows (e.g. MMA syndrome) by the presence of toxins in blood.
The characteristics of the different diets that are administered during this period are:
