Use of intestinal conditioner pronutrients in broilers
This information has been obtained from field results of farms in the Antioquia region (Colombia) during 2017 and 2018
Evaluation of the effect on productive parameters of using an intestinal conditioner administered â€śON TOPâ€ť (without replacing Antibiotic Growth Promoters or AGPs) continuously in feed during all productive life (42 days) in broilers. This information has been obtained from field results of farms in the Antioquia region (Colombia).
A total of 65.076 birds were used for the trial, which were separated in two batches:
- Treated batch (31.620 birds) fed with basal diet + AGPs + intestinal conditioner pronutrients at a dose of 0,5 kg/Tn.
- Control batch (33.455 birds) fed only with basal diet + AGPs.
Treated batch showed that productive parametersÂ like mortality, weight and conversion rateÂ were improvedÂ by the addition of intestinal conditioner pronutrients, as seen in the chart belowÂ (Chart 1).
Chart 1. Productive parameters and differences between batches (FCR = Feed Conversion Rate;
P.I. = Productivity index (Efficiency/FCR); Efficiency = (survival x weight x 100) / feed intake.)
Treated batch withÂ intestinal conditioner pronutrientsÂ showed aÂ considerable improvement in productive parametersÂ regarding to control batch: the first one obtained less mortality (2,44% vs. 7,37%), a better average weight (+370 gr), a better FCR (1,51 vs 1,65), a better productivity index (+32,54) and a better efficiency (+37,3), while the sanitary status of both batches was normal.
This natural product based onÂ intestinal conditioner pronutrientsÂ is commercially available wiht the name ofÂ Alquernat Nebsui,Â manufactured and developed byÂ Biovet S.A. Laboratories.
