Phytogenic feed additives in poultry production

Fit chicks perform better

Phytogenic feed additives - a win-win situation in poultry production

Modern poultry production is a highly sophisticated process. Success depends strongly on skilled management and proper nutrition regimes to optimize feed conversion ratios as well as boost daily weight gain or laying rate. Achieving these production goals while minimizing feed costs is one of the main challenges in poultry production.  Poultry producers are confronted with a variety of challenges both on and off farm, such as the challenge of consumer pressure to enhance animal welfare, while simultaneously striving for increased performance. The advances in knowledge and application of phytogenic feed additives in poultry diets are becoming better understood and utilized to optimize production and enhance feed efficiency – where, even at the highest levels of production, a further optimization of efficiency in poultry production is possible.

Strength for every challenge - provided by plants

The demand for poultry meat and eggs, produced under antibiotic-free conditions with high animal welfare standards is increasing. More and more poultry producers ask questions like: How to maintain consistent egg mass and egg quality of layers, longer?  How to help the bird deal with conditions of stress? Or how to produce safe and high-quality meat during challenging situations? Producers must manage the balancing act of channeling resources in poultry health while keeping the production process profitable.
