ast week a veterinary team from Biovet S.A. participated in technical-commercial visits in Bolivia. They visited the main poultry producers and organised meetings with the Poultry Farmers Association of Santa Cruz (ADA). During the meetings the solutions of Biovet S.A. for the main challenges faced by producers in the area were presented.
Climate and pathologies in Bolivia
Bolivia has a great geographic and climatological diversity: the predominant climates are subtropical and tropical savannah, characterised by mild winters as well as hot and humid summers.
Due to environmental factors – high temperatures and humidity – mycotoxin contamination of raw materials and feed for livestock production is one of the most serious problems in this area. Besides pathologies caused by the presence of mycotoxins, others such as necrotic enteritis, present a serious threat to the health and production of poultry and other livestock.
For this reason, the meetings in Bolivia focused on solutions for binding mycotoxins, feed preservation, and prevention of necrotic enteritis.
Solutions to improve poultry production
The veterinary technical team of Biovet S.A. outlined the benefits of the Silicoglycidol molecule, the first mycotoxin binder patented globally and marketed under the name Alquerfeed Antitox by Biovet S.A. Several trials have shown that Silicoglycidol is effective in preventing the negative effects of mycotoxins, with a positive impact on the economic performance of farms.
To enhance food preservation and prevention of necrotic enteritis, they highlighted the broad spectrum of action of Alquermold Natural. It is a food preservative, and its microbicidal properties also allow it to be effective against fungi and pathogenic bacteria present in the digestive tract, where it eliminates microorganisms such as E. coli, Salmonella, and Clostridium and promotes the balance of the intestinal microbiota.
