With the increased feedcost broiler production profitability is under pressure. Companies are searching for opportunities either to reduce the feed cost as such or trying to improve the efficiency. In broiler growing in the end what really counts is to reduce the cost/kg live broiler or per kg/carcass depending on the payment conditions. As broiler production is about protein deposition it is important to saveguard the functioning of the intestine. Stress is one of the causes why broilers perform very often below expectations. Oxidative stress is one of the main reasons for this. So how can products with anti-oxidative functionalities contribute to improving feed efficiency?

Supplant D: a new kid in town – Said Radwan (Product Manager Poultry – Agrimprove)
Several products based on phytogenics or natural identical phytogenics molecules are commercially available. Some of them claim a broad range of activities. Some of them are quite specific and targeting to improve performance. Supplant D belongs to the latter group. It aims to reduce the negative effects of oxidative stress and as such reduces the damage to the cells, the organs, the DNA. Supplant D belongs to the category of enzymatic antioxidants neutralizing the reactive oxygen species (ROS) by its improved enzymatic functioning. By doing so performance is improved under the circumstances. Being based on well defined and researched molecules such as carvacrol, cinnamaldehyde and capsaicin Supplant D is a reliable product delivering consistently on farm level a reduced cost of feed/kg live weight.
What can we learn from the experience in the USA? – Stacie Crowder (Product Manager Monogastrics, Land O’Lakes)
Stacy Crowder, MS, will share on her experience with Supplant D and how it has enhanced broiler performance in the United States. With years of experience, she’ll provide re-life examples on how Supplant D’s phytogenic compounds are delivered to the receptor to support both animal health and bottom line.
