Novosol enhancing the performance parameters of broilers
Type of trial: Field Trial
Location of trial: Hungary, Europe
Experimented animals: 10,260 one-day old broiler chicken
Trial aim: Assess the effect of XVET’s Novosol on performance parameters of Broiler chicken such as mortality and body weight.
Material and methods:
During the trial two parameters were observed and recorded:
- Body weight (average from randomly sampled animals)
The animals used for testing were divided into two different groups with 5,130 birds each.
In the treated group, Novosol was added from day 4 to day 8 in the drinking water. First day in a proportion of 2 liters in 1000 liters of drinking water, and the following days 1 liter per each 1000 liters of drinking water. The application time during the day was mornings for 8-12 hours.
The group without Novosol is called control.
Both groups were given the same supplements during the entire rearing period only variating on the addition of not of Novosol. Mortality was controlled on a daily basis and body weight once every 7 days.
Mortality on the treated groups was lower than the control group after the addition of Novosol in the drinking water. (Fig. 1)
Figure 1 shows that the daily mortality of the treated group sank after the application of Novosol on day 6 and stayed steadily lower than the control group until the end of the trial. On day 33, birds were collected and sold due to size capacities in the farm. The control group presented higher mortality during collection than the treated group. The final mortality in the treated group was 188 birds while on the control group it reached to 272 birds. Thus, 30% less mortality in treated group was recorded in comparison with the control group.
Another aspect recorded during the trial was the body weight of randomly sampled animals. The average body weight of the treated group slightly increased during the complete rearing period and a difference of over 300 g was recorded at day 42 (last day) as shown in Fig. 2.
It was concluded that after the addition of Novosol into the drinking water of broiler chicken for just 5 days, an improvement on the mortality rate, as well as the body weight gain was recorded.
A decrease of 30% of the mortality in the treated flock showed the direct effect of Novosol on maintaining a healthy animal. Not only mortality showed a difference but body weight as well during the entire rearing period, with a finishing treated group weight of +360g (Fig. 2) over the group where Novosol was not administered.
