At Biovet S.A. we have developed natural products specifically created for layers, encompassed within the OVUM line, which aim to improve the quality of chicken eggs. Aval Premium, Alquernat Nebsui, Alquerfeed Layers, Alquermold Natural and Alquerfeed Ovoponedoras are some of the products that make up this line.
In recent years, concern about food safety has increased globally. Several zoonosis control measures have been implemented in slaughterhouses and food processing plants. Despite this, foodborne diseases still are a problem of great impact for the global population.
Biovet will present the results of two trials about natural preservatives and pronutrients at the IPSF
Biovet S.A. will participate in the International Poultry Scientific Forum to be held online on January 25th and 26th 2021. In this edition, Biovet will present the results of two recent trials. Specifically, a trial about the use of Alquermold Natural to reduce microbial load in laying hens will be presented and a second trial that will describe the effects of Alquernat Zycox on the improvement of production parameters in broilers.
In warm seasons, the basic thermoregulation mechanisms are insufficient and heat stress causes problems in the birds. Initially, lethargic birds are observed, with stretched wings, increased water consumption, decreased feed intake and low productive performance.
In this trial the use of Alquernat Yucca, an additive based on yucca extract and cimenol ring, is tested in the diet of laying hens to reduce the concentration of ammonia present in the farms. The results show that it was reduced to more than half of the initial values, improving the general condition and welfare of the birds.
