CLOSTAT® More than a health insurance - Better uniformity, growth and survivability

Intestinal health issues in livestock and poultry are a leading cause of profit loss in animal production. Intestinal health is mainly discussed mainly by veterinarians . Improving uniformity, drier litter or reducing diarrhoea are of interest across all species. All these, and even shell quality and colour in layer hens are directly linked to intestinal health. With the serious threat of increasing antimicrobial resistance pressure on reduction of antibiotics in animal production is going to add to the challenge in the future.



Broilers and turkey

•        Less dysbiosis & necrotic enteritis

•        Less wet litter even during coccidiosis vaccination

•        Pays for itself by reduction in FCR, mortality and overall performance improvement

•        Reduced need to treat with antibiotics

•        ROI >3.3

Additional in layers

•        Improvement of lay%, FCR and peak lay in young hens

•        Improvement of shell quality and FCR in older hens

Additional in breeders

•        Improvement of egg cleanliness and microbial quality

Benefits of using CLOSTAT in pigs

•        Lower risk of clostridiosis in suckling pigs

•        Better piglet uniformity, less dysbiosis (for example e. coli) by promotion of Lactobacilli & Bifidobacteria

•        Reduced need to treat with antibiotics


Who can use CLOSTAT?

Nutritionists – CLOSTAT has shown in scientific and field trials to improve uniformity, reduce mortality across species and have a very positive effect on shell quality in layers and breeders. Due to its intrinsically durable spores, CLOSTAT spores are stable to at least 85C under normal pelleting conditions, it can be added to any diet.

Veterinarians – several CLOSTAT products can be fed via drinking water, making it a convenient, alternative to those antibiotics normally given via water.

Organic production – several  CLOSTAT products are permitted for use in ecological/organic production in the European union.


CLOSTAT supports intestinal health

CLOSTATs modes of action directly influence the intestinal health. Therefore it is successfully used in antibiotic reduction programs.

CLOSTAT has been demonstrated in trials to reduce potential pathogens (e.g. Clostridium sp.).

CLOSTAT has in trials significantly increased beneficial microorganisms (e.g. Lactobacilli, Bifidobacteria).

CLOSTAT, unlike typical antibiotics, has in trials increased the microbial diversity[KDB8]  across all micrbial species[SK9] .


What is CLOSTAT?

Spores of Bacillus subtilis ATCC PTA-6737 patented by Kemin. Originally selected from healthy chickens surviving a necrotic enteritis (Clostridium spp.) outbreak in their flock. CLOSTAT has since proven beneficial in other poultry species, pigs, ruminants and even human applications. In the EU, CLOSTAT is registered for poultry species and piglets and sows.


What is CLOSTAT compatible with?

CLOSTAT is compatible with most organic acids and anti-coccidials in feed.

CLOSTAT is compatible with Aleta, ButiPEARL, Formyl and FormaXOL as well as with the whole Kemin feed safety product range.

In water CLOSTAT HC SP dry is compatible with all water hygiene products, provided they are used at standard levels.
