Coccidiosis Control

Selected Species

Reduce the reliance on anticoccidial chemicals and ionophores and overcome antimicrobial resistance challenge as well as boost the efficacy of cocci vaccines

The need for Coccidiosis Control

  • Coccidiosis is the leading disease in poultry, costing the industry an estimated 10-15 billion USD annually
  • Anticoccidial drugs have been used for decades through rotation, shuttle, and bio-shuttle programs, but newer regulations, consumer preferences, and resistance concerns demand novel intervention strategies
  • Anticoccidial vaccines, considered as potential alternatives to chemicals, affect livability and performance
  • Therefore, the needs for managing coccidiosis in poultry production are:
    • Identifying the gap in the current rotation and or shuttle programs
    • Finding effective alternatives for anticoccidial chemicals and ionophores
    • Overcoming the risk of antimicrobial resistance
    • Boosting the efficacy of cocci vaccines

Many coccidiosis control programs include feed additives because of their compliance with programs like no antibiotics ever or antibiotic-free and for their unique modes of action that compliment different rotation and shuttle programs.

A synbiotic helps to improve intestinal integrity during a coccidiosis challenge whereas a novel precision-biotic redirects nutrients away from opportunistic pathogens and towards productive microbial protein metabolism.

A comprehensive mycotoxin risk management strategy helps to eliminate the risk of mycotoxins predisposing the birds to coccidiosis. Further, it is important to have a monitoring system in place, such as blood biomarker modeling, to prevent health issues before they happen. Similar to monitoring the health of the birds, the environmental footprint can be calculated for sustainability measurements to understand differences from before and after changing flocks.
