ICC Brazil to introduce new solutions for poultry at conference in Peru
ICC Brazil will introduce solutions focused on animal welfare, intestinal integrity and uniformity of chicks at OVUM 2019 - 26th Latin American Poultry Conference, which will take place in Lima, Peru, on October 9-11.
The company, which focuses on the production of innovative, yeast-based solutions for animal nutrition, has participated in the event for years. The conference takes place once every two years, in a Latin American nation.
"These events are really important, as they give us the opportunity to see old clients and suppliers and meet new business partners in Latin America. Also, we use the event to promote our [solutions] for the industry," said Ricardo Toledo, ICC Brazil's sales manager.
At the event, Toledoanticipates more concern from customers and partners about solutions that help promote the health and integrity of poultry.
At its booth, ICC Brazil will introduce ImmunoWall®, which is made of a high number of β-glucans and mannan oligosaccharides (MOS). This ensures that animals maintain a balance of intestinal microbiota and improve their immune system responses, resulting in less contamination by pathogens.
Consequently, animal welfare and performance are significantly better. Studies have showed that supplementing the animal diet with ImmunoWall® reduces salmonella enteritidis contamination in hens, and consequently in their eggs, by 90%, according to ICC Brazil.
The results of using Hilyses® will also be presented. Hilyses® is a source of nucleotides and free nucleosides that are rapidly absorbed by the body. They also help to strengthen the chicks' immune system and promote more efficient and uniform growth.
"This is an industry concern that generates many extra costs for the farm, from working with additional handling to disposing of chicks that do not reach the ideal minimum weight. There are several problems that affect batch uniformity. Hilyses® is one of the tools to assist reducing uniformity issues, in a natural and consistent manner, for different scenarios," Toledo explained.
Another product that will be introduced at ICC Brazil's booth is Liposorb®, an emulsifier that helps animals digest lipids (fats) in feed and supports the optimisation of mill efficiency in producing more uniform and better quality pellets.
