In an increasingly challenging market, improving feed conversion, litter quality and gut health consistently is not easy. Especially when complying with regulations on antibiotics usage, the highest animal welfare standards and meanwhile aiming for production of the best quality feed and meat in a cost efficient way.
Grolux™ Poultry Integrated Solutions products are specifically designed to improve and stabilize the yield and technical results of your animals, helping to maximize your profit. Using Grolux™ Poultry Integrated Solutions results in increased weight gain and lower feed conversion ratio, with a positive impact on quality parameters such as foot pad lesions and litter quality.
Our experience shows that 95% of the customers who have started using Grolux™ Poultry Integrated Solutions continue to rely on our products due to their consistent benefits.
The Grolux™ Poultry Integrated Solutions product family offers high-quality, safe and efficient mid-chain fatty acid (MCFA) products for all types of broiler feed delivering:
Higher feed-to-meat conversion compared to products that feature commonly used energy sources. Our performance trials show that the use of MCFAs results in:
- an improved average body weight gain between 2 - 4% and
- a decrease in feed conversion ratio of 2 – 4.5%,
depending on inclusion level.
Our in vivo trials show more consistent and predictable results with the use of MCFAs through a decrease in the spread of results, leading to a more uniform product performance.*
Example of results from 3 cycles at a commercial poultry integration at inclusion level of 2%. The black line shows the standard deviation of the results from the 3 cycles.
Scientific research shows that MCFAs positively influence the intestinal health in an antibiotic-free environment. In addition, our trials show improved amino acid digestibility, lower mortality rates and a reduction of foot pad lesions incidence.
