Science and Technology │ Winter Laying Hens Feeding: Aiming at the gut health, Prevention of Intestinal diseases

At the beginning of the New Year, many places in the country have already entered the snow season, and the “small potatoes (travellors)in the south” are also called by the snow scene and go to the Northeast to enjoy the snow and ice world.As the saying goes, good snow means good years, but for chicken farmers, the cold winter is not so happy. Low temperatures will not only lead to higher costs for keeping the coop warm, but also bring challenges to protecting the intestinal and respiratory health of laying hens.”Double health” is not only related to the birth and death of chickens, but also related to the “money bag” of chicken farmers. So what role does the gut of one of these two pathways play? How do we protect our intestines and keep our money bags tightly in our hands?

gut health

The prevention and control of poultry diseases should be considered from the “intestine”

The immunity of laying hens mainly depends on the gut.The intestinal mucosa, skin and respiratory mucosa of chickens together constitute the first line of defense against the invasion of foreign bodies (microorganisms, dust, etc.), and about 60 to 70% of immune cells are located in the chicken intestine.In addition, more than 80% of the toxins and metabolites in the chicken body are excreted from the body by the intestine.

Therefore, the gut is a very important organ for chickens. Once intestinal health problems occur, almost all life and production activities of chickens will be affected.Most common diseases in chickens are directly or indirectly related to the gut. For example, the growth and development of young chickens are slow (weight and other indicators are not up to standard); Laying hens delayed the start of laying, or the laying rate rose slowly or even stopped at the peak of climbing. Fluctuating or unexplained decline in egg production rate; Egg weight is light; High damage rate; The yolk becomes lighter and the egg white becomes thinner; Refractory diarrhea, overfeeding, lower feed conversion rate, lower feed reward; Low immunity, poor immune response, poor effect of vaccine immunity, especially drinking water immunity, rapid decline of antibodies and so on.

Winter laying hens feeding key: Aiming at the gut health, Prevention of Intestinal diseases

The key to keeping laying hens in winter is to guard the intestinal health, and the key to intestinal health is fatty acid balance.What is fatty acid balance? Fatty acid balance takes the three major balances , through the monoglycerides of lauric acid, triglycerides of tributyrate, Schizochytrium algae powder and other highly effective intestinal protection of a variety of functional fats and oils mixed and matched, can improve the composition of the dietary fatty acid, fit the real needs of the animal, repair the intestinal barrier, promote the development of the intestinal tract and the stability of the micro-ecology, and improve the health of the intestinal tract.
#OPRIMEST-LH# can regulate the balance of intestinal flora, maintain the integrity of the intestinal barrier, improve eggshell quality and laying efficiency; at the same time, it can strengthen the body’s immunity, improve the health of chickens, and increase the benefits of farming.OPRIMEST LH
