Could phytogenic feed additives prevent bacterial resistance
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a considerable threat to public health worldwide. The related cost to the healthcare systems of EU/EEA countries is estimated to be around €1.1 billion per year. Based on the Antimicrobial Resistance Collaborators’ predictive models (2022), an estimated 4.95 million deaths were associated with bacterial AMR in…
Benefits of phytogenics for laying hens during environmental challenges
Due to global climate changes, climatic variations have altered the environmental temperatures, precipitation patterns, and atmospheric carbon dioxide in the last few decades. Climatic conditions have an impact on poultry farming and so controlling environmental temperature during hot seasons is one of the significant challenging factors in egg…
Fertility performance assessment of broiler breeder flocks
At a time when production costs are rising, output efficiency has never been more critical to a producer’s financial return. One way to ensure that the reproductive flock performs optimally is by conducting a real-time fertility assessment to estimate the performance. If required, this can save losses and money through early intervention.
