Biovet S.A. will present a poster entitled ‘Use of Alquernat Nebsui alone and in combination with Zinc Oxide to replace carbadox in diets for weaned pigs’ at the Allen D. Leman Swine Conference. This year, the congress will be held online from 19th to 22th September.
Health and productive performance are tightly related to nutrition. This is because digestive processes that take place in the intestines have a significant effect on productive results.
Farm profitability greatly depends on a good production performance. Therefore, optimizing productive parameters is essential, especially when the market conditions are not ideal.
On 4th May 2020, Biovet S.A. obtained the patent of Alquernat Zycox product in Spain. It is an intestinal optimizer based on pronutrients which reinforces the intestinal mucosa and normalizes the activity of the local immune system of the gastrointestinal tract.
In pig production, an adequate air quality is essential because animal welfare, productivity and economic performance depend on it. Ammonia is the most important gas that affects air quality in pig farms.
The liver is one of the main points of the organism, as it is in charge of multiple essential functions such as protein synthesis, essential for the production of meat, eggs and immune effectors, as well as the metabolism of many nutrients and the elimination of residues. In addition, the liver also acts as a gate of entry for many substances that are absorbed in the gut.
Avian coccidiosis is a parasitic diseases with a great impact on poultry worldwide because of the negative effects on productive performance, as it causes growth stunt, worsening of feed conversion and mortality, with severe economic consequences. It is caused by several species of the genus Eimeria that can affect different parts of the digestive tract, sometimes, simultaneously.
Both health and production performance are closely related to animal nutrition. One of the mechanisms of nutrient absorption in the intestine is through the paracellular pathway, where tight junctions between enterocytes have an essential role.
