Biostrong® 510 EC: Learn more about Delacon’s zootechnical feed additive for poultry (2017)

Only five years after Delacon succeeded to obtain the first registration for a phytogenic product as a zootechnical additive, at March 9, 2017 Delacon received a second registration, now for one of our phytogenic poultry products. Biostrong® 510 EC met high validation standards of the authorities of the European Union showing the verifiable potential to support performance of chickens for fattening , chickens reared for laying, minor avian species for fattening and reared for laying. This Dossier provides you background information on various experiments conducted to obtain the registration of Biostrong® 510 EC as a zootechnical additive, further supported by efficacy data on Biostrong® 510. Besides details on e.g. the age-independency of the effects, positive effects on litter quality, foot pad lesions, and shelf life of poultry meat and the efficacy in different avian species, you will find information of Delacon’s strict and standardized quality management needed to produce high performing phytogenic feed additives, for which Delacon is known.

Intestinal health in poultry
Issue no. 7 of our scientific publication
24 pages

Topics include:
- Most common intestinal disorders in poultry
- Nutritional strategies and phytogenics to support gut health in broilers and turkeys

Intestinal integrity in poultry: current challenges and future solutions (2016)

More than ever before, there is a big focus on intestinal integrity in poultry. Globally, areas expand where in-feed antibiotic in animal production are banned and regulations are implemented to reduce the use of therapeutic antibiotics. This leads to new challenges, increasing the incidence of intestinal disorders as well as challenges for farmers and nutritionists. Delacon is eager to support poultry producers to find solutions to improve intestinal health, not only by phytogenic feed additives but also by different nutritional strategies. Several experts discuss in this dossier intestinal disorders in poultry and strategies how to improve intestinal integrity in broilers, layers and turkeys. In addition, Delacon presents some future alternatives to antibiotics.

Trends in animal nutrition
Issue no. 3 of our scientific publication
36 pages

Topics include:
- More efficiency in hog production
- Alternatives to antibiotic growth promoters
- Improved nutrient digestibility

Trends in Animal Nutrition - Where are the boundaries? (2010)

With an eye on the ban of antibiotic growth promoters in the EU 2006, this Dossier's issue deals inter alia with alternative feeding strategies, which furthermore have to provide a solution to stabilize gut functionality and gut integrity. Within this 36 pages, phytogenic feed additives and their beneficial effect on nutrient digestibility are explained. Along with an overview on immune-nutrition in monogastrics, a more specific article deals with future challenges and developments in poultry production and how nutritional factors contribute to broiler health. When it comes to boundaries in animal nutrition, the influence of animal production on the environment has to be taken into account. Thus you will find information on the calculation of animals’ carbon footprints, as well as on approaches to the reduce ammonia emissions.

Efficient nutrition
Issue no. 2 of our scientific publication
20 pages

Topics include:
- Strategies for feed cost reduction
- How does better nutrient retention work?
- Nutr. value of phytogenic feed additives

Efficient nutrition (2008)

The reduction of feed costs is always a topic of vast interest. This Dossier gives you an overview of the current raw material situation, which has worsened dramatically in the last years. Furthermore, we have compiled the many advantages of phytogenic feed additives, which could deliver truly significant contributions for a sustained lowering of feed costs. Much more so than in the past, research and development have concentrated in recent years on the modes of action of plant-based active agents in animal feed. Herein, you find approaches to increase profitability with the use of phytogenic feed additives and an explanation of Delacon’s Performizer concept to optimize both, economic and zootechnical performance.

The ammonia dilemma
Issue no. 1 of our scientific publication
12 pages

Topics include:
- Agriculture to blame for emissions?
- Reducing ammonia by up to 50%
- Nature as the “best available technology"

The Ammonia Dilemma (2007)

Agriculture is the main guarantor of ammonia emissions. Next to the negative effects on environment, ammonia does also affect animal’s health, welfare and performance. Around 30 percent of the nitrogen ingested through feed is utilized by the animal´s body. The rest is excreted via feces and urine. The excreted nitrogen is split by urease, a bacterial enzyme in the intestinal tract of animals, into carbon dioxide and the harmful ammonia. The approach of Delacon´s products is to increase nutrient digestibility and minimize the activity of urease with natural substances. Read more about ammonia and Delacon`s approach in this dossier.
