Biovet presented its range of pronutrients in the United Kingdom for the improvement of the digestive system in turkeys
The 13th edition of the Turkey Times brought together representatives from the sector to talk about advances in animal production and health
The thirteenth edition of Turkey Times took place in Chester, UK, between March 6th and 8th. According to the organizers, this annual meeting on science and common pathologies in the production of turkeys was aimed at the dissemination of latest production trends and new treatments for better animal health.
Although the main focus of the event was about the European turkey industry, they were attendees both from private and research sectors from Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia.
On behalf of Biovet S.A. laboratories, Dr. Júlia Pié gave a lecture in line with the debate on animal physiology optimization and intestinal well-functioning with natural additives. By using them, it is intended to ameliorate nutrient-assimilation and enable general strengthening of the immune system, so the proliferation of some pathologies can be mitigated.
Improvement of the intestinal mucosa for greater nutrient-absorption
Biovet’s proposal for the optimization of the digestive system functions is based, mainly, on the combination of two kinds of pronutrients: intestinal conditioners and intestinal optimizers.
The former favor the regeneration of enterocytes, thus facilitating the absorption of nutrients and a better general functioning of the intestine. The latter, on the other hand, are designed to strengthen intestine’s local immune system, so that parasites’ reproductive cycle can be broken and eliminated them from the digestive system, avoiding infestations such as coccidiosis.
Si bien ambos tipos de pronutrientes se comercializan por separado como Alquernat Nebsui y Alquernat Zycox, Biovet ha desarrollado Alquernat Coneb, un producto que combina pronutrientes acondicionadores y optimizadores intestinales. Este aditivo natural está especialmente indicado para reducir la aparición de patologías y el uso de antimicrobianos en la producción de pavos.
While both types of pronutrients are marketed separately as Alquernat Nebsui and Alquernat Zycox, Biovet has developed Alquernat Coneb, a product that combines both intestinal conditioners and optimizers. This natural additive is especially indicated to mitigate the appearance of pathologies and reduce the use of antimicrobials in turkey production.
Other debate topics
In addition to new methods for immunological improvement against the onset of coccidiosis, those aimed at avoiding the proliferation of pathogenic microorganisms in the intestine, such as salmonella, were also protagonists. Amongst Biovet’s product range, there is an intestinal biocide marketed under the name Alquemold Natural, which has been especially designed to avoid the growth of enterobacteria.
