Reducing the risk of health and nutritional challenges at every life stage is essential for successful poultry production. With our comprehensive range of solutions at the heart of healthy development and welfare, we at dsm-firmenich help you address the challenges you face to protect your flocks with confidence.

Challenges in PROTECTing flock health

  • Increasing need to reduce the reliance of anticoccidial chemicals / ionophores and antibiotic growth promoters due to their resistance as well as the need for transition to ‘no antibiotic ever’ production.
  • Need to potentiate anticoccidial vaccines to avoid their impact on flock performance.
  • Stress conditions such as heat, vaccination, transport, etc., affect flock health.
  • Antimicrobial resistance and the consequences on performance.
  • Mycotoxins compromise gut integrity and predispose birds for disease challenges.
