Improving productive parameters in broilers with Alquernat Zycox and Alquernat Nebsui
In 2018, a study conducted in Antioquia region (Colombia) evaluate the effects of Alquernat Zycox, intestinal optimizer pronutrients and Alquernta Nebsui intestinal conditioner pronutrients, administered from day 21st to 40th of the production cycle, on productive parameters.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
Data from a total of 66.300 animals separated in two batches were analyzed:
- TREATMENT BATCH (35.700 animals): Pronutrients were administered at a dose of 0,5 kg/ton of feed of each type:
- Intestinal optimizer pronutrients: from day 21st to 40th.
- Intestinal conditioner pronutrients: from day 30th to 40th.
- CONTROL BATCH (30.600 animals): Fed with a basal diet.
From day 21st until day 30th, in the TREATMENT BATCH, intestinal optimizer pronutrients were administered “ON TOP”, together with coccidiostats.
From day 30th until day 40th, both the chemical coccidiostats and antibiotic growth promoters were removed.
Intestinal optimizer pronutrients were maintained in the diet as an alternative to coccidiostats, and intestinal conditioner pronutrients were added (days 30th to 40th) as an alternative to the antibiotic growth promoters.
