Essential oils: Mechanism of action on pathogenic bacteria

Essential oils are a promising alternative to antibiotics Essential oils are concentrated hydrophobic liquids containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. They are usually obtained by distillation, extraction with liquid carbon dioxide or microwaving. Essential oils contain a very complex mixture of volatile molecules that are can be classified in two main groups, according to their […]

Signs of mycotoxicosis in new born piglets

New born piglets may show toxicity signs related to zearalenone or aflatoxins Mycotoxins are commonly present in swine feed. Pregnant and lactating sows are highly susceptible and mycotoxin contamination triggers a variety of clinical signs together with the worsening of productive parameters. But the negative effects of mycotoxins are not limited to the sows themselves. […]

We show the beneficial impact of chicory extract on the growth of Lactobacillus acidophilus

When chicory extract is added to a culture of Lactobacillus acidophilus, bacterial growth and metabolic activity are enhanced Chicory root extract is rich in inulin. Inulin is a dietary fiber that naturally exists in many plants, has a high content of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and acts as a natural prebiotic. Many studies show that prebiotics can […]

The rising risk of fumonisins in swine

Contamination by fumonisins is increasing in swine feeds worldwide. Fumonisins are a group of mycotoxins discovered in 1988 and produced primarily by Fusarium verticillioides and Fusarium proliferatum. There are at least 28 different forms of fumonisins, being fumonisin B1 the most common. The percentage of fumonisin-contaminated feedstuffs is rising in recent years, as climate change is causing extreme […]

Digestive function of the gestating sow impacts the health of the piglets until weaning

Feeding phyto-active ingredients results in healthier and faster growing piglets The role of the health of the sow is increasingly important to the productivity of the farms. Until recently, sow’s health was primarily focused on obtaining more pigs per sow per year and reducing non-productive days, but we know now that it is possible to […]

Sow’s constipation is directly related to production of colostrum and milk

Imbalance of sow’s gut flora has consequences on the productivity of the whole farm Constipation is a very common problem in late pregnant and lactating sows kept under close confinement, mainly due to insufficient fiber in feed or to lack of exercise. Heavier sows, from second parity onwards, are more affected than lighter sows. Whenever […]
