Reduction, and ultimately, the ban of antibiotics from animal feed, does not come without its challenges. An overall approach, including non-antibiotic in-feed specialties, can help cope with these challenges.
In this article Olivier Maigret refers to the feed for young piglets. Post weaning is a critical transition period for young piglets and the way this phase is handled will tremendously impact the growth of the future pigs. Trail results show that using the right combination of enzymes targeting specific raw materials allows cost saving and flexibility in feed formulation, while keeping similar nutrient and energy values.
The key to optimal animal production is a balanced gut. Performance pressure renders broilers vulnerable to infectious and/or non-infectious triggers. Present study reports on the combined effect of medium-chain glycerides (MCG) and phytogenics.
In this paper Kirsten De Keyser refers to a broiler field case where birds were fed AGP-free feed added with the concept of MCG plus phytogenics at different dosage rates for optimal gut health control.
