Field trial: beneficial effects of ReproPlus© on sow’s productivity at farrowing

A trial made last June in a commercial farm confirms the effectiveness of ReproPlus© on increasing the litter size, reducing the percentage of stillborn piglets, increasing the number and weight of live animals and boosting the general productivity of the sow at farrowing. The trial group was given ReproPlus©, 10 grams/sow/day on top of the […]

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 […]

We are experts in gut health

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 the absence of disease so that the animal is able to perform its physiological functions and withstand exogenous and endogenous stressors. […]

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 […]

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. […]

Essential oils help to improve the air quality in pig and poultry houses

Essential oils provide a more pleasant environment, reduce ammonia and repel insects Ammonia often accumulates inside poorly ventilated or poorly managed poultry and pig houses, particularly during winter season. Levels of 50 to 100 ppm in the pig house reduce performance, especially daily weight gain, and make the animals more prone to respiratory problems. Poultry […]
