Eliminate antibiotic growth promoters from broiler feed while boosting economic benefits!Replacing AGP with a combination of organic acids and plant extracts boosted benefits by 7.7%

Replacing antibiotic growth promoters with functional feed additives, in order to fulfill regulatory requirements or consumer demands, is sometimes seen by the farmers merely as an increase of the cost of feed.

But certain functional feed additives, such as plant extracts, are able not only to successfully replace antibiotic growth promoters but to deliver a series of benefits that are translated into better productivity and additional economic benefits.

Our combination of plant extracts and organic acids is able to:

  • Balance digestive flora
