Minervet S.A. organizes a training day for China11 de March de 2022
Minervet organized a training video conference for China
Last December 15, 2021, Minervet’s veterinary technical team organized an online training for its distributor in China, Wei Fang Yu Tian He Rui International Trading Co. Ltd., and its customers.
In the first part of the videoconference, members of the Peruvian Academy of Veterinary Sciences explained the main pathologies that currently affect broiler production. Broiler production faces numerous challenges derived from the density of birds per m2, the genetics of the chickens, the quality of the air, the quality of the feed, the presence of toxins in the feed and the imbalances of the intestinal flora.
This leads to a number of pathologies that are very common in broiler farms such as mycotoxicosis, intestinal dysbiosis and liver problems.
In the second part of the training, Dr. Germán González, a Minervet S.A. technical team veterinarian, presented the main Minervet products capable of preventing these pathologies:
Aisen to prevent mycotoxicosis
Aisen is a polysilicol mycotoxin binder that is effective in mitigating the effects of mycotoxicosis. It is effective at low doses, has a broad spectrum of action, and adsorbs only mycotoxins, not nutrients. In the videoconference, an in vivo trial using Aisen in broilers was presented, conducted at the University of Cuyo in Mendoza, Argentina. By supplementing Aisen in feed, studies show lower mortality (4.84%), lower intestinal relative weight (0.15%) and improvement in the feed conversion rate and efficiency index.
Shikimates to improve feed efficiency
Miner G, the second product mentioned, is a feed efficiency improver, composed of plant extracts with active botanical components called Shikimates. Miner G has established itself as an effective and natural alternative to growth-promoter antibiotics and other products with the same objective.
Miner H, the latest product featured in the training, is a liver conditioner. The active botanical components, Shikimates, improve liver functions, prevent liver problems, such as fatty liver or hemorrhagic fatty liver, and restore the liver after suffering liver damage.
In vivo tests in broilers carried out with Miner G and Miner H have shown the favorable effects that these products have on the productive parameters in broiler farms.
Cycle of training conferences for China
This conference is part of a cycle of trainings that Minervet conducts for its Chinese distributor. In January the theme will deal with the main pathologies that affect pigs, in February it will focus on laying hens and, in March, on ruminants.
