Reducing antibiotics in poultry production
Antimicrobial resistance to antibiotics is an emerging human health risk. Poultry integrators are an important part of the food chain and have a need for real solutions that can ensure animal health and productivity in a sustainable way.

More on the feed additives involved
Adding feed additives to animal feed supports the reduction of microorganisms and mycotoxins, and has a positive impact on gut health, thereby improving animal performance.
Combining a feed applied additive such as Presan®-FY with a water applied additive such as Selko®-pH supports gut health and improves performance. A stable and diverse microbiota is important for good digestion. Presan-FY improves microbial balance and diversity throughout the small intestine. It also improves the barrier integrity of gut wall cells.
Using this combination of additives gives the best results because it affects both the stomach and the more distal gut. Together they have been shown to maintain growth performance of poultry in an antibiotic growth promoter-free production system.
