Proven to Improve Profitability in Boilers

Broilers fed with ButiPEARL™ during the whole production cycle (42 days of age) showed an increased feed conversion ratio and final body weight.

 

Performance Data for Broiler

A total of 240 male Ross 308 chicks, at one day old, were divided into 3 experimental groups.

Performance Data on the broiler treated with Butipearl vs. protected sodium butyrate vs. negative control. This resulted Butipearl on a higher ROI

Table 1. Zootechnical performance & intestinal histo-morphological parameters in broiler chickens fed with diets containing different butyrate sources.

Results showed that supplementation with ButiPEARL™ at less than half the dose of the Protected Sodium Butyrate gave better feed conversion ratio (p<0.05), and higher return on investment (ROI*).

*ROI = Net Profit/Treatment Cost

 

Asian Commercial Trial

A commercial trial was conducted in Asia using day-old Cobb chicks.

This table shows that ButiPEARL™ was able to maintain good animal performance in the absence of Avilamycin, an antibiotic commonly used as growth promoting agent in feed in an unchallenged condition.\

Table 2. Difference in performance and lesion scoring parameters in broiler chickens fed with diets containing either ButiPEARL™ or Avilamycin.

ButiPEARL™ was used to compare against Avilamycin in terms of performance improvement. Overall performance of broilers fed with diets containing 

ButiPEARL™ was similar or slightly better than that of broilers fed with diets containing Avilamycin. At the same time, Cobb chicks exhibited a lower intestinal lesion score and a much higher European broiler performance index when fed with diets containing ButiPEARL™.

ButiPEARL™ was able to maintain good animal performance in the absence of Avilamycin, an antibiotic commonly used as growth promoting agent in feed in an unchallenged condition.
