Farmers, poultry integrators, avian zoo-technicians and veterinarians are continually seeking to increase the performances of poultry farms, within the context of limiting the use of antibiotics in all poultry species. Olmix has recently developed new 100% natural solutions, able to promote an optimal gut integrity through a higher production of mucins, the main components of the intestinal mucous layer.
Ms Frédérick Bussy, Olmix Group’s For Vet Specialist, describes how specific biological algae extracts can play a vital role when it comes to chick management in the farm.
Olmix Group has become one of the major global specialists in marine biotechnology and green chemistry and offers algae-based solutions for plants, animals and humans to build a healthy food chain, based on circularity, reduction of pesticide, antibiotic and chemical additive use.
Seaweed contains ‘sulphated polysaccharides’ – components that are not found in plants, yeast or microalgae. Yet animals do react well to them. Combining sulphated polysaccharides from green and red algae, a new strategy has seen the light that can help weaner pigs in programmes without antibiotics.
