During heat stress, PlusBreathe© increases feed intake by 10%

In hot environments, animals are prone to change their feeding patterns: the processes of digestion and nutrient absorption produce metabolic heat and, to control body temperature, animals limit feed consumption. The magnitude of the reduction will depend on the species and the environmental temperature: for example, at 30ºC, Holstein cows eat 20% less; poultry 5% […]

The gut’s barrier function in production animals

The surface of the gastrointestinal tract is covered by epithelial cells. These cells must prevent the absorption of toxic substances and pathogenic microorganisms into blood, while at the same time they must ensure the absorption of nutrients. To achieve this target, the gut has developed a “barrier function”, constituted by a semi-permeable barrier that allows […]

Making phytogenics more effective against Gram-negative bacteria: use of permeabilizers

In recent years, phytogenics have been used as substitutes of antibiotic growth promoters in the poultry and livestock industries. The beneficial effects of phytogenics are attributed to their antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. We discussed the antimicrobial mechanism of action of phytogenics in this article. As antimicrobials, they generally exhibit a broad spectrum of action, […]

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 […]

Importance of gut health in production animals

THE CONCEPT OF GUT HEALTH Gut Health is of vital importance to the performance of production animals. A healthy gastrointestinal tract allows to reduce or eliminate the use of antibiotic growth promoters. Gut health is defined as the absence of disease so that the animal is able to perform its physiological functions and withstand exogenous […]
