Salmonella in the poultry industry
Salmonella is a genus of bacteria containing two species and more than 2500 serovars. It is a major foodborne pathogen that can cause a variety of illnesses ranging from self-limiting gastroenteritis to severe systemic infection and death, both in animals and humans. Animals are infected with this pathogen by eating contaminated food or inheriting it from their mothers before they are born or hatched. Salmonella infections are a huge public health concern and hamper animal husbandry efforts worldwide.
A tailor-made zootechnical additive based on bacteriophage technology, capable of inhibiting the most prevalent serovars within a geographical location. Exclusively for use in broiler flocks during the rearing period. Contributes to reducing Salmonella spp loads.
“Today, in high-quality animal production, there is a need for products that safeguard the values that need to be inherent in unique health, preserving fundamental concepts such as animal health, rational use of antibiotics, animal welfare, productivity, low loss. All of these characteristics are reinforced by the use of INSPEKTOR – B, a contemporary tool that adheres to the real needs of different production systems, customizing the application and meeting the needs of each production system.”
