Scientific trials showed a significant effect on the microflora (an increase of Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria, reduction of Clostridiaceae and Enterobacteriaceae). Consecutively, the intestinal villi in jejunum and ileum of the animals that receive CLOSTAT™ in the feed are significantly longer than in the control animals.
Overview of all the performance data of 46 field trials performed with CLOSTAT™. These trials were done in different countries all over the EMEA region. More than 7,000,000 broilers were involved.
CLOSTAT™ trial in replacing antibiotic growth promoters (AGP) in a commercial broiler was conducted in Vietnam. This trial shows that CLOSTAT™ is able to maintain flock performance without the use of AGP.
CLOSTAT™ improves body weight and uniformity in pullets in a large field trial with 43 layer pullet flocks.
In a field trial with young layers (17 to 31 weeks) in a large farm, CLOSTAT™ reduces the mortality (-0.4%) and improves the lay % (+0.25%) and FCR (-0.06%).
In a large field trial with older layers (48 to 70 weeks), CLOSTAT™ improves lay % (+2%), egg weight (+0.4 g), egg mass (+3%) and FCR (-0.07%).
