Fungi and mycotoxins represent and important challenge in the way to achieve the performance objectives in farms, due to the negative effects they have on animals. To prevent mycotoxin consequences, it is essential to apply methods with a double focus: against mycotoxins and against the fungi that produce them.
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.
Necrotic enteritis is one of the most common diseases in poultry and causes economic losses worldwide. The ban of antibiotic growth promoters has made it a re-emerging disease. In addition, the disease appears on many occasions in the period prior to slaughter, when antibiotic treatment is limited due to the withdrawal period.
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.
Biovet S.A. will participate in the annual meeting of the American Association of Avian Pathologist (AAAP) 2020 to be held online July 30 – August 6. On this occasion, Dr. David Diez, veterinarian of Biovet S.A., will present a trial about the use of the natural antimicrobial, Alquermold Natural, for the prevention of necrotic enteritis in broilers.
Farm profitability greatly depends on a good production performance. Therefore, optimizing productive parameters is essential, especially when the market conditions are not ideal.
Every year, mycotoxins have a great economic impact on animal production because they cause great productive losses. Their presence in the feed depends on several factors, such as the origin of the grain or the weather conditions during the cultivation and harvest, for this, mycotoxin contamination is different depending on the season and year.
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.
