A technical team from Biovet visited layer farms in Malaysia at the end of April, to show the improvements produced by pronutrients in egg production. In the production of laying hens, the objective is to transform the nutrients coming from the diet (amino acids, energy, minerals and vitamins) into eggs in an efficient way and at the lowest possible cost. For this reason, it is essential that the birds have a healthy intestine in good condition to absorb these nutrients.
"Alquernat Nebsui, is an intestinal conditioner, based on pronutrients (polyphenols, essential oils, polysaccharides) that stimulate the regeneration of enterocytes and improve the state of the intestinal mucosa, in such a way that it increases the productive parameters in layers thanks to the increase of the use of nutrients. In relation to egg production, it improves the absorption of carotenes in the diet, which is related to a greater deposit of carotenes in the yolk, "explained the Dr. Veterinary of the Technical Department of Biovet, Elvira Cano.
Likewise, Cano also alluded to the general tonic Alquerfeed Vitamin Amino Acids L Premium. It is "a nutritional supplement composed of pronutrients (obtained from botanical extracts), a wide variety of water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins and different essential and non-essential amino acids that improve the quality of the yolk, its color and texture".
Currently, animal breeds have such a genetic potential that they must be fed high energy protein feed from very early ages. This implies that the digestive system works in extreme conditions, that is why products like those previously mentioned "while inhibiting the proliferation of pathogens, improve the absorption of nutrients, optimize the digestive properties of the mucosa and replace “antibiotic growth promoter", Dr. Veterinaria emphasized.
On the other hand, during the visit, the advantages of employment natural preservatives and mycotoxin binders in layers were also emphasized. With regard to natural preservatives, Alquermold Natural is a product that added to raw materials and compound feed acts as a bactericide and fungicide. "This feed technology combines the action of an active principle of natural origin, ring cimenol, with citric acid and its incorporation into drinking water allows the control of the main pathogenic colonizing microorganisms of the intestine, such as Salmonella, E. coli, Clostridium, Staphylococcus, fungi and yeast, "said Cano.
Finally, regarding mycotoxin binders, the representative of the Technical Department of Biovet explained that the product Alquerfeed Antitox, which includes Silicoglycidol, is used in birds for the prevention of enteritis and poisoning (mycotoxicosis) by ingestion of feed contaminated by mycotoxins. "Its advantages are that it is effective at low doses (0.5 kg / tm) and because it does not adsorb other products such as vitamins, enzymes or drugs in its structure," she concluded.
