Your birds are happy when their gut is healthy

“Livestock producers aim to treat poultry without antibiotics, by using natural products. Supplementing broiler and turkey diets with Biostrong® Protect can help the bird to overcome critical stages in better conditions,” says Tobias Steiner, Head of Strategic Marketing.

To address those concerns in poultry production, we believe protection is better than cure. Therefore, we trust in the power of nature and brought a new product to the market during IPPE. Biostrong® Protect addresses top concerns in the poultry production. The product was designed to satisfy the needs of modern animal feeding strategies. Intestinal disorders, such as coccidiosis and necrotic enteritis cause more than 5 billion US$ globally.

Phytogenius minds in action

Francisco E. Dias, our Customer Technical Service Manager Poultry participated at the Tech Talks at this year’s IPPE. He talked about “The synergy of phytogenic feed additives with anticoccidial medication on broiler performance”. Due to an increasing demand for antibiotic-free meat production the poultry industry is facing many challenges in gut health an intestinal integrity.

Therefore, companies focus on effective strategies to overcome these challenges related to coccidiosis, necrotic enteritis and dysbacteriosis. Phytogenic feed additives are based on plant-derived, bio-active components that can help with these challenges.
