Delacon Launches Biostrong Forte

05 March 2015

THAILAND - Delacon has launched Biostrong® Forte for profitable poultry production under challenge conditions and will be exhibiting at VIV Asia 2015.

A sound replacement of antibiotic growth promoters requires specially designed dedicated products for antibiotic-free applications. Delacon developed a new product, Biostrong Forte, which combines beneficial Biostrong 510 effects with short and medium chain fatty acids. Biostrong Forte helps to fight the common intestinal challenges found in antibiotic-free production.

Upon its launch in 2000, Biostrong 510 was the first phytogenic product range for poultry. The innovative formulation is based on in-depth knowledge, broad experience and extensive research. To the key advantages of Biostrong 510, namely increased nutrient digestibility, improved feed efficiency and reduced noxious gas emission, Biostrong Forte adds a complex of esterified fatty acids to control and reduce common critical intestinal health challenge periods in the bird’s life.

Biostrong Forte has been launched on the US market and is already in the registration process in Malaysia and Philippines. On a global scale, the product is in different stages of approval.

Fit chicks perform better: Improved intestinal health, lower mortality and better performance

Studies have shown that Biostrong Forte significantly benefits broilers under typical intestinal challenges. It goes without saying that healthier broilers perform better. With Biostrong Forte, on average the body weight increases by two per cent while the feed conversion rate decreases four per cent.

Economic evaluations from research institute experiments and field trials show an average return on investment (ROI) for Biostrong Forte of over 4:1, based on feed costs (including the costs for Biostrong Forte), and selling price of broilers.
