One of the main issues in poultry husbandry is efficient and sustainable animal production. Several factors such as raw material prices and increasing worldwide competition force farmers to optimize their production cycles. Moreover, farmers have to deal with animal welfare regulation, restriction of antibiotic usage and prevalence of infectious diseases. To achieve efficient production, animal health is an important parameter and this is largely determined by gut health and the control of pathogenic pressure.
A healthy well-developed gut is needed for efficient nutrient uptake to achieve sufficient growth and efficient FCR. Due to a variety of stress factors such as pathogenic load, animal density, climate condition and type of feed and housing, especially in young animals the gut might be underdeveloped resulting in decreased digestion and immunity. As a result, animals become highly susceptible to infectious diseases and (metabolic) disorders, leading to decreased performance, high mortalities and lower profitability.FRAmelco have developed FRA® Butryin Hybrid dry: a specific formula containing 1-monoglycerides, di- and triglycerides of butyric acid, and carefully selected essential oils. Feeding this product to poultry, stimulates gut development, reduces health problems and improves animal performance.
» 1-monoglycerides of butyric acid
Extensive research shows that short chain 1-monoglycerides possess antibacterial and animal performance improving properties. FRA® Butyrin Hybrid dry contains 1-monoglycerides of butyric acid to inhibit gram-negative pathogenic bacteria. As a result of the unique mode of action, 1-monoglycerides are active in the entire gastrointestinal tract and blood stream. Pathogens do not develop resistance against 1-monoglycerides. It is suggested by literature that 1-monoglycerides may be used as an alternative for preventive use of antibiotics.
» Di- and triglycerides of butyric acid
The effect of butyric acid on gut development is intensively studied. Butyric acid serves as energy source for the epithelium cells and stimulates villi growth and recovery, and length of the small intestines, resulting in more efficient uptake of nutrients and enhanced resistance against pathogens. Di- and triglycerides of butyric acid are non-smelling and guarantee an effective target release of butyric acid in the gut.
» Essential oils and flavour enhancing aromas
Adding a small amount of carefully selected essential oils induces a synergistic effect. Furthermore flavour enhancing aromas are added to FRA® Butyrin Hybrid to enhance feed intake.
