Contributes to coccidial risk management
Angers, 9th July 2019. New data from Turkey confirm the efficacy of Norponin®XO, a premixture of additive developed and produced by Nor-Feed, especially if we compare it with synthetical treatments.
Norponin®XO is a premixture of natural additives formulated with saponins-containing plants. It contributes to coccidial risk management, the main threat to the worldwide poultry industry, that represents a cost estimated at approximately 3 billion US$ per year.
A large-scale trial in Turkey
The trial was carried out in Turkey on Cobb 500 Broilers, from Day Old to the 45th day.
220 000 birds were divided in two groups.
A positive group in which the chickens received a feed supplemented with a combination of Narasin + Nicarbazin (NA+Ni) and then with Narasin only (Na), until treatments withdrawal (from day 38 to day 45).
A Norponin XO Group, animals received feed supplemented with Norponin®XO during all rearing period.
In this trial, animals that received Norponin®XO supplemented feed showed better zootechnical results compared to animals that received the feed supplemented with Na+Ni/Na (+ 7% of European Performance Efficiency Factor, – 3% of FCR).
Moreover, the return on investment of the Norponin®XO supplementation is greater than NA+NI/Na supplementation (5 vs 3). In these field conditions, supplementation of the food with Norponin® XO is therefore as efficient as a reference shuttle program based on synthetic coccidiostats.
Natural solution for contributing to coccidial risk management
Norponin® XO is a natural solution based on plants rich in saponins that contributes to the management of coccidial risk in multiple species.
