The global approach to poultry demedication

Demedication in poultry requires a comprehensive approach based on a multifactorial approach. It is often necessary to work on a global approach integrating a number of changes. Find out more about our approach to poultry demedication.

Background on poultry demedication

In order to work on reducing the emergence of multi-resistant bacterial strains, some countries have been committed to reducing or banning the use of antibiotics as growth promoters (AGPs) for several years.

Other countries or producers are following suit and are beginning to implement incentives or restrictions on the use of AGPs.

It is for these reasons that the needs in terms of demedication vary according to the maturity of the markets and the distance from the proposed solutions.

  • A market opening up to production without systematic use of antibiotics will face new difficulties requiring adapted responses, especially in terms of digestive safety to maintain production performance.
  • A mature market will aim to optimize the existing system with state-of-the-art solutions by acting on different levers, including nutritional ones.

Poultry demedication: a global approach

Supporting the quality of the chicks

Acting on breeder poultry at the level of farm biosafety, health, their natural defences and the transport time of chicks makes it possible to have a positive influence on the quality of the chicks.

Favouring a good start​

Ensure proper development of the intestinal microbiota and maintaining it until the end of the breeding.

Reducing the risk and/or consequences of infections​

Prevent dysbiosis, coccidiosis, necrotic enteritis, pododermatitis by alternative solutions.

Controlling the risks

Work on feed formulations (proteins, NSP, Tui, phytates...) and improve the digestibility of the nutrients.

Supporting the integrity of the intestinal barrier​

Limit the effect of stress.

Rethinking the management​ of the farm

Monitor critical factors: bedding, soil, light program, temperature, ventilation, density, water quality, hygiene and biosecurity.
