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.
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.
Swine influenza is a disease that causes periodic outbreaks in pigs in different areas of the world that negatively impacts animal health and productive performance and can compromise farm viability.
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.
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.
Due to the current situation caused by COVID-19, this year the Biovet International Symposium will be held online. The congress, which was scheduled to take place in Dublin on October 2 and 3, will take place virtually in autumn through a videoconference program.
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.
