Prevention : the key to reducing antibiotics
The emergence of antimicrobial resistance is due to the widespread use of antibiotics in animal production. At least 700,000 people die each year from drug-resistant diseases. As such, the authorities have decided to reduce the use of antibiotics in animal production. Prevention is the key word for the future of animal production, with good farm management, high levels of biosecurity and high feed quality being required to prevent physiological disorders in birds.
To stop depending on antibiotics, birds need to be more resilient. Phileo has developed a post-antibiotic programme involving premium yeast-based solutions, such as Safglucan®, Safmannan® and Selsaf®. This programme enhances breeders and layers natural defences, reduces pathogen pressures, improves gut health and prevents oxidative stress.
