Fertility in breeder flock


Did you know that the infertility issues in breeding herds are mainly related to males, although females may also be responsible for the reproduction performance? Improving males' healthy fertility is the most efficient way to strengthen the production of day-old chicks.

Sperm cells are sensitive to free radicals due to their great content of lipids. This oxidative reaction may impact the morphology and functionality of the spermatozoa. Moreover, the free radicals can interfere with the DNA transported by the sperm cells, reducing the viability and quality of embryos and the offspring.  

Did you know?

Traditionally plant extracts have been used to enhance male fertility for more than 4,000 years. In recent decades, science has proven the positive effect of different botanical substances on supporting healthy male fertility.


Phytogenics: proven efficacy in contribution to poultry reproduction

Scientific literature is robust and consistent because phytogenic compounds can mitigate adverse oxidative effects since those substances can raise the sperm count and functionality and have a positive impact on reproduction.
