Negative effects of heat stress on the fertility of layers and breeders

High environmental temperatures cause very serious economic losses to egg-laying farms. In a recent post we discussed the negative effects of heat stress on egg quality. In today’s article, we will describe the impact of high environmental temperatures in hens (layers and breeders), male breeders and on the hatchability of fertile eggs. 1.Negative effects on the […]

Improving eggshell quality under heat stress

High environmental temperatures cause very serious economic losses to the egg industry each year. There are 3 major factors contributing to these losses: Biochemical, hormonal and metabolic changes due to high temperatures, in example increased production of free radicals that leads to reproductive disturbances (worse laying rate) and failure of the gut barrier. Poor egg quality Impaired […]

7 main causes of erosions in gizzard and proventriculus

(This is a revisited version of a post we published in 2013). It is estimated that 15 to 25% of the birds routinely necropsied in broiler, breeder or layer farms show proventriculus or gizzard erosions. The consequences of such erosions should not be underestimated, since both organs are key for performance: When the proventriculus glands […]

Heat stress impairs intestinal barrier integrity and leads to leaky gut

The gastrointestinal tract is one of the main organs affected by heat stress. Diarrhea, watery feces, digestive infections, inflammation of the intestinal tissues, etc are triggered by the exposure to high temperatures. In recent years, the gastrointestinal problems that happen during heat stress have been linked to a failure of the gut barrier function (leaky gut). […]

Advantages of the use of essential oils to relieve heat stress

Essential oils relieve heat stress through 3 main mechanisms of action Heat stress occurs when the amount of heat produced by an animal surpasses the animal’s capacity to dissipate the heat to its surrounding environment. It is associated with increased mortality, digestive problems, metabolic imbalance, muscle dysfunction and impaired productivity across species. Follow the links […]

Importance of leaky gut syndrome in farm animals

A syndrome called “leaky gut” has gained quite a bit of attention lately in human medicine.  The term “leaky gut syndrome” is used to describe the condition of “hyperpermeable intestines” that takes place when the intestinal lining becomes more porous and its barrier function is no longer functioning properly. The fallout results in larger, undigested […]

Essential oils help to reduce the number of insects in the farm

Insects such as flies, mosquitoes, midges, red mites and ticks cause major economic loss to farmers. Their bites produce skin lesions, irritations or allergic–type reactions to the animals or to the farm workers. On the other hand, insects are vectors of pathogenic bacteria and virus, like Pasteurella sp, E.coli, Salmonella sp or Avian Influenza Virus. Insect […]
