Increase performance, decrease feed costs for poultry, swine and ruminants


All of Delacon’s phytogenic feed additives strike for the same aim of maximized feed efficiency in animal production. Therefore, improved nutrient digestibility is the key solution to boosting animal performance and reducing feeding costs, respectively. Several bio-active substances in our phytogenic feed additives are highly efficient in stimulating digestive enzymes and facilitating nutrient uptake in the gastrointestinal tract. Thus, the application of our products improves feed conversion ratio, which means that a single individual is able to utilize a higher portion of the provided feed due to the supplemented phytogenic feed additives.

Performance Optimizer –
direct saving of feed costs


This net effect can be used in two different ways: depending on the production goal, Delacon’s phytogenic feed additives may be applied “on top” to increase animal performance or they can be applied according to our Performizer®-concept to reduce feed costs.

What does the Performizer®-concept stand for? The above-mentioned increase of nutrient digestibility is translated in nutritional matrix values, which can be applied in diet optimization, resulting in lower costs per ton while maintaining performance at the same level.

Recommended and detailed matrix values for a reduction of dietary energy, protein, amino acids and minerals are provided by Delacon’s team of nutritionists on demand.

Alternatively, if Delacon’s phytogenic feed additives are applied on-top to a certain feed ration, performance of livestock will be increased. Generally, the positive influence of our phytogenic solutions on nutrient uptake is an improvement of feed conversion ratio. More specifically this results, among others, in increased growth rates, increased egg production and egg weight in laying hens, increased litter sizes and weaning weights in piglet production or in a higher milk yield in dairy cows. Consequently, due to the on-top supplementation of Delacon products feeding costs do decrease in relation to the production of 1 kg of meat, eggs or milk.
