Orego-StimÂ® is now registered in South Africa by Trade Vet CC as a feed additive for use through the drinking water.
Trade Vet holds the registration and as part of the product launch, they recently organised a series of seminars for poultry farmers and veterinarians.
Dr Justin Tan, senior technical manager at Meriden conveyed the latest thinking about the use of Oregano Essential Oils in poultry production, a subject which could easily have been dismissed but gained credibility by the scientific analysis at these events.
According to the company, using Orego-StimÂ® in the feed or water will benefit broiler and layer production by: helping to maintain a healthy immune system; maximising intestinal health; producing drier faeces and drier litter and thus producing less ammonia; reducing mortality; decreasing incidences of diarrhoea caused by common intestinal diseases; improving efficiency of growers; improving growth rates and feed conversion ratio; improving the efficiency of layers and uniformity of the eggs; increasing egg production, and reducing the number of cracked, inferior and dirty eggs.
