Poultry Science: Food Safety, Bird Health, Management Stress03 September 2015
US - The 2015 Poultry Science Association Annual Meeting last month in Louisville, USA included studies on food safety, enteric health, respiratory health, and management stress.
Research evaluated Diamond V Original XPC™ and AviCare™ efficacy:
- Analysis of the gut microbiome response of broilers fed diets containing combinations of Original XPC and salinomycin via an Illumina MiSeq platform. Stephanie Roto, Si Hong Park, Steven Ricke (University of Arkansas)
- Original XPC decreases Salmonella Typhimurium and Enteritidis populations and alters fermentation acid profiles in chicken in vitro caecal incubations. Peter Rubinelli, Steven Ricke (University of Arkansas)
- Effects of feeding XPC to broilers challenged with infectious laryngotracheitis virus (ILTV) following different vaccination methods. Donald McIntyre, Jonathan Broomhead (Diamond V), John Rosenberger, Milos Markis (AviServe LLC)
- Effect of induced stress on turkey hen performance provided with and without AviCare and Original XPC. Brooke Bartz, Jesse Grimes, Samantha Black, Ilana Barasch (North Carolina State University), Don McIntyre (Diamond V)
Original XPC in poultry feed supports intestinal health and integrity with multiple modes of action to balance the immune system, support the intestinal microbiome, and optimise intestinal structure.
AviCare in poultry drinking water is designed for use before and during production challenges such as fasting, transport, and other atypical situations. AviCare also can be used continuously in the drinking water, along with Original XPC in the feed, during all life stages.
