Nowadays, poultry producers are looking to have the best livestock health, while limiting the use of the antibiotics. Alternative maximising the efficiency and profitability prophylactic vaccination strategies and protecting animal against pathogens are therefore of major importance. To achieve this goal, new avenues are constantly being explored. One of them concerns the use of new molecules extracted from seaweeds for stimulation of the body’s natural defences and its response to vaccination strategies.
Feeding a consistently growing population is the main pressure in fast production cycle. With the advancement of genetics, improvements in animal husbandry and better nutrition, we can now produce more in very small place and in less time. As we increase the production, we also increase nutritional requirements, biosecurity, animal health and environmental pressure. Together with this high demand in production, there is a global pressure to produce safe and healthy food without antibiotics.
