Egg production has become a key protein source in modern society due to the rise of animal protein prices on the market. One of the most important parts of the egg is the eggshell which will give structure and strength to the egg as well as the capacity for it to exchange humidity and oxygen through it. In XVET we put our product Cal D Phos to the test to see the improvements recorded using this product on the field. After administrating Cal D Phos the eggshell increased in thickness over 0.11mm in average in comparison to thickness measurements before the use of Cal D Phos. This increases on the eggshell quality may help to avoid breakage of eggs or micro-fracturing of the eggshell at farm and transportation level.Read more “Effect of XVET’s Cal D Phos® on the eggshell thickness in two different layers strains”
Short and medium-chain fatty acids had been historically used in poultry production due to their effect on improving animal’s performance parameters. The mixture of these fatty acids with specific essential oils has been proven to work in synergy providing extra benefits such as growth promoter and antioxidant effects.
During this trial the effect of Novosol (Short and medium-chain fatty acids plus specific essential oils) was recorded after the addition of Novosol (XVET Germany) into the drinking water of broiler chicken for just 4 days, resulting in an improvement on the mortality rate as well as the body weight gain.Read more “Novosol enhancing the performance parameters of broilers”
In birds as well as in other animal forms the respiratory system plays a key role in the survival of animals. Challenges such as heat stress, poor air quality, and pathogen pressure can have a direct impact on the integrity of the respiratory system and with that lowering the performance of our farm animals.
In XVET, we count with one top product that supports the respiratory system from different perspectives: Aromax. Which is a smart formula with a high concentrated mixture of essential oils that targets not only respiratory challenges by improving oxygen provision; but also helps to increase the feed and water intake for the flock.
Genetic potential for milk production has increased dramatically, in addition to that, management and nutrition play an important role in terms of lactation productivity. Feed additives are ingredients that can be added to the feed of animals in small quantities to improve the health and production parameters, and in case of dairy cows also to improve daily milk yield.
It is concluded that after administrating Turbo Gain at a dose of 100 g / cow, the overall health and feed consumption of the cows improved rapidly. Lactation and milk yield have improved as well reaching higher milk production than both competitors during field trialsRead more “Effect of XVET’s Turbo Gain on lactating cows”
Talking of a healthy animal, we cannot only see it as a whole, but as a group of systems working together in sync. Reproductive system is an important one among all systems.
XVET Zincotin is a product that contains organic bound Zinc as well as biotin and multiple amino acids formulated for the improvement of fertility in chicken.
Better egg shell quality is vital. For instance, minimizing the microscopic breakage of eggs avoid microfractures during incubation or a higher pathogen pressure caused by a higher density of pores in the eggshell.
XVET products such as Cal D Phos and Ovostrong provide a good source of minerals plus other essential ingredients in a perfect balanced formula for a better eggshell quality and laying rate.Read more “Reproduction, an important key for production”
The present study indicates that administering XVET Germanys Aromax resulted in a reduction of respiratory signs and improved the local and humoral immune response in broilers. Overall Aromax improved the overall strength of the immune system as well as increasing the effectiveness of the vaccine.
Administering Aromax as a spray (2ml/l) twice a week and in the drinking water (0.2 ml/l) everyday (Groups 3 and 4) results in a healthier respiratory system, higher body weight and weight gain, less stress on the liver, a stronger immune system and stronger vaccine response compared to vaccinating against Newcastle disease without giving Aromax (Control).Read more “Effect of AROMAX (XVET Germany) on performance, local and humoral immunity against vaccination of Newcastle disease in the low management level in broiler chicken”

AGPs out, Inflammation in
In livestock production, antibiotics were widely used as growth promoters (AGPs). The reason AGPs have been used to promote growth is simple. Antibiotics at sub-therapeutic levels reduce pathogen pressure, inflammation and diseases. Once the body no longer needs to waste energy mounting an immune response to pathogens and trying to fight infections, all the metabolic energy the animals acquire from nutrients is primarily channeled for growth. However, since AGPs have been increasingly banned around the world, due to the rise of antimicrobial resistance, certain challenges in animal rearing started re-surfacing. Inflammation, for example, has become a critical and visible issue in many farms. And one of the main causes of inflammation is oxidative stress.
What is oxidative stress?
Oxidative stress is a process in the body that can happen in every cell or tissue, impairing absorption capacity and leading to lipid peroxidation, protein nitration and DNA damage. This process occurs when there is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants.Read more “AGPs out, Inflammation in”
