Improvement in Coccidiosis Vaccinated Broiler Performance with Tannic Acid Extract and Bacillus coagulans
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of tannic acid extract (TAE) alone or in combination with a direct-fed microbial, Bacillus coagulans (TAE + BC), to positively impact the performance of coccidiosis vaccinated broilers. The trial measured vaccinated broiler performance from d0 through d 49. On d21, TAE, ionophore and a chemical improved weight gain compared to untreated control.
The aim of the present study tested the effect of tannic acid extract (TAE) alone or in combination with a direct-fed microbial, Bacillus coagulans (TAE + BC), on performance and gut health of coccidiosis vaccinated broilers. Broilers were either unchallenged or challenged with late Eimeria infection. The study looked at performance and gut health during two time periods: vaccinated only (0 to 49 days) and late cocci challenge (vaccination + cocci challenge; 28 to 35 days).
