Dr NEIL GANNON gives an insight into how bacteria develop resistance to antibiotics, the modern approaches to assessing antibiotic resistance, and how research is indicating that use of feed additives does not increase antibiotic resistance in bacteria, and in many cases, can actually lead to lower levels of resistance.
IAN HANDS, JENS NOESGAARD JØRGENSEN and LENA RAFF present Asian piglet trials that show a highly-selected, probiotic containing two naturally-occurring spore-forming strains of Bacillus promotes stability of the digestive tract and reduces pathogen load and can successfully be a tool to reduce antibiotics.
Swine influenza belong to the family Orthomyxoviridae group A. The genome is segmented into 8 negatively sensed RNA pieces. The virus is enveloped.
Societal and legislative demands for chickens produced without AGPs can increase the incidence of enteric diseases such as necrotic enteritis (NE). Dr GANGGA WIDYANUGRAHA reviews the etiology of NE and recommends practical measures to reduce its incidence in AGP-free production systems.
Dr TIM WALKER reports that feed barley is a proven, reliable grain for poultry, including broilers and its nutritional value is well understood. It has low mycotoxin contamination and while it’s better suited to breeders and layers because of lower ME, it can be included in broiler feed, including as whole grain.
USAMA AFTAB and GILSON ALEXANDRE GOMES share the results of a trial designed to test the hypothesis that thermostability is an important determinant of the performance response to the exogenous NSP enzyme.
Charcoals have been known and appreciated for thousands of years for their purifying effects and general detoxification purposes. MIEKE ZOON describes how this knowledge can be applied to livestock and poultry to improve their gut health by reducing the negative impacts of enterotoxins & mycotoxins.
WENBIAO LU, YINGGU KUANG and MANLI LIU present new research that highlights the importance of form of trace minerals in animal diets.
JAE CHEOL KIM and ALEJANDRO CRIADO discuss how the information generated by fiber analysis using near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIR) technology can be best used in practical formulations for monogastrics.
