Poultry

For over 40 years, our microencapsulation technology empowered the delivery and the slow-release of active ingredients to the intestine of poultry, bypassing the gastric environment.Our scientific research demonstrated that it is possible to maximize performance by lowering the concentration of the compounds.

AviPlus®P

AviPlus®P is a zootechnical feed additive to improve growth rate and feed efficiency, according to EU Regulation 849/2012.

EFFICIENCY

AviPlus®P is the 3rd generation of Vetagro innovative products for poultry. AviPlus®P is an EU zootechnical feed additive to increase the growth rate and feed efficiency of healthy chickens. Conditions like stress, enteritis and dysbacteriosis, which all affect intestinal health, integrity and functioning of the gut, have an impact on feed efficiency. AviPlus®P may help to restore the integrity of the intestinal epithelial lining thus improving growth performance and FCR in poultry. Its mechanism of action is based on the unique properties of its ingredients which synergistically improve the intestinal barrier function thus increasing the efficiency of nutrient absorption and growth. AviPlus®P is fully traceable in premixes, complete feed, and even along the gastrointestinal tract. The absolute innovation of AviPlus®P resulting from 30 years of global market experience has been proven by international patents.

REGULATORY

The EU Commission approved the use of AviPlus®P as a zootechnical feed additive with the identification number 4d3 for safe and effective poultry production. AviPlus®P zootechnical performance, as reviewed and approved by EFSA under EU conditions, increases growth rate and improves feed efficiency in healthy poultry. AviPlus®P is safe for the animals, the consumer and the environment as stated by the European Union.

    Assessing intestinal health. In vitro and ex vivo gut barrier models of farm animals: benefits and limitations

    The concept of “gut health" is not well defined, but this concept has begun to play a very important role in the field of animal science. However, a clear definition of GIT health and the means by which to measure it are lacking. In vitro and ex vivo models can facilitate these studies, creating well-controlled and repeatable conditions to understand how to improve animal gut health.
