Poultry Expertise

Over the last 25 years, poultry has been the fastest growing sector in animal production. In line with this, BIOMIN has grown a strong team of specialists in all aspects of poultry production, nutrition and health.

Working closely with the global industry, the BIOMIN team has brought solutions from our research and development commitments to address current and emerging problems in the field. 

Situated in all geographical regions, the team endeavors towards giving practical recommendations with local knowledge.

Mycotoxins

Despite being a worldwide problem, clinical mycotoxicosis is not a common occurrence in the field. However subclinical mycotoxicosis can affect poultry in many ways, ranging from immunosuppression leading to decreased vaccine efficacy, to fatty liver, buccal, comb and wattle necrosis.

Antibiotic Reduction

Antibiotic Reduction

The widespread use of antibiotics in livestock production has come under increasing scrutiny in recent years. In light of shifting consumer demand and regulatory pressure, there is a clear trend to reduce or completely remove antibiotics from production.

Gut Health & Performance

Many factors affect gut health, and hence performance, in poultry. Feed structure and ingredients play a major role in reducing gut health through anti-nutritional factors, including mycotoxins as causative agents.

BCO Lameness

Bacterial Chondronecrosis and Osteomyelitis (BCO lameness) is caused by bacterial infection of the femoral head, which can result in femoral head necrosis. Worldwide surveys confirm the wide spread problem of lameness. A common disease, BCO lameness affects both long-life birds and fast growing birds worldwide.

Raw Material Preservation

Raw material preservation focuses on minimizing microbial contamination, mold growth, oxidative processes, the production of toxins, growth of cereal pests and the subsequent risks to health. Preservation also prevents losses in nutrient availability of raw materials.

Feed & Water Hygiene

Discussions on biosecurity often neglect water and feed. Yet, these are two of the major vectors for disease organisms entering the farm. Feed can be contaminated by a range of pathogenic organisms which may or may not be destroyed during the feed manufacturing process.

Necrotic Enteritis

Necrotic Enteritis

Necrotic enteritis is one of the world’s most common and financially crippling poultry diseases affecting approximately 40% of commercial broiler flocks. Clinical outbreaks can cause mortality rates of up to 50% and has been estimated to cost the global broiler industry upwards of $5-6 billion annually.

Gram-negative Control

Increased Gram-negative bacteria in the intestine can result in diarrhea leading to wet litter and inflammation in the intestines. This has a detrimental effect on performance both in terms of growth rate and feed efficiency in broilers. It also results in egg production losses and fewer saleable eggs in layers and breeders due to increased numbers of dirty eggs.

Egg Quality

Egg shell quality is an important economic factor in both hatching eggs and table eggs. Some mycotoxins, like Ochratoxin A, can affect kidney function by impairing vitamin D3 production and consequently, calcium (Ca++) metabolism. This can lead to poorer egg shell quality, more breakage and reduced hatchability.
