Relationship between digestive function, health and productivity in laying hens

The genetic potential of farm animals has improved significantly in the recent decades. However, it is estimated that the productivity of commercial farms is 35% below the genetic potential due to suboptimal conditions and health status. Gut health plays a key role in the expressing of the genetic potential: the digestive system is responsible of […]

Heat stress and immunosuppression: essential oils come to the rescue!

High environmental temperature is among the most important causes of poor performance in our industry. Heat stress negatively affects the oxidative status of the animals, egg quality, reproductive performance, gut health and immune response. Immunosuppression during heat stress leads to a raise mortality and to an increased susceptibility to different diseases. MODULATION OF THE IMMUNE RESPONSE […]

In the hot season, plant extracts prevent the damage caused by oxidative stress

Heat stress causes serious physiological dysfunctions that result in a decline in animal performance and in a deterioration of overall health. In an article that we published last year, we explained how the redirection of the blood flow towards the skin, in order to maintain the body temperature, causes a decrease in the supply of […]

Success cases: solving digestive problems of free-range broilers with PlusProtect Digestive© and GrowthPlus©

The management of free-range birds is labour intensive and very complex due to the uncontrolled environmental conditions. In Spring and Summer, with the hot and humid weather, keeping a healthy gut is a challenge for many producers. When antibiotics are not an option for residue and regulation concerns, plant extracts come to the rescue and […]

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). […]

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 […]
