Publication: Replacing the coccidiostats: defining natural and cost-effective surrogates
Presented at the 5th AFERP International Symposium (Angers, France, July 2017) and the 65th GA International Congress (Basel, Switzerland, September 2017).
Coccidiosis is the major threat for the poultry industry worldwide with an annual cost estimated at over 3 billion dollars. In the meantime, the poultry industry will soon face a drastic restriction on coccidiostats. Sustainable solutions, must be found before the regulations change. Saponins, naturally produced by some plants (Norponin XO), are capable of lysing coccidia.
Publication: Alternative methods to control intestinal disorders in swine
Presented during the 4th Annual Meeting for Responsible Use of Antibiotics (2016).
Fattening in pig livestock is a stressful period where antibiotics are used in order to control swine dysentery. This disorder, mainly due to Lawsonia intracellularis (LI) and Brachyspira hyodysenteriae (BH), leads to serious economic losses. In this trial, we studied the effect of feed supplementation with NSOAB9®, a complementary feed based on citrus and saponin-containing plants.

[PUBLICATION] Effects of an encapsulated grape extract supplementation
The good health of calves depends, in part, on the quality of the colostrum ingested. Furthermore, there is a clear link between the antioxidant and the immune status of colostrum. In this trial, we studied the effect of a feed supplementation with an encapsulated grape extract [Nor-Grape By Pass®], rich in polyphenols, anthocyanins & procyanidins, on the antioxidant and immune status of bovine colostrum.
