On Farm Guide to Diagnose Necrotic Enteritis

What is Necrotic Enteritis?

Necrotic enteritis (NE) is a notable disease in the poultry industry which is caused by Clostridium perfringens.

Clostridium perfringens is a gram positive, spore forming, anaerobic organism which is normally present in a healthy chicken's hind gut in small numbers. The acidic pH and oxygen content of a healthy small intestine do not support the growth of this organism. This organism is also found in soil, dust, feces, feed, poultry litter and intestinal contents.

CloSTAT™ is an active microbial feed additive with targeted activity against Clostridium perfringens.
