Our product pillars; POWER-PROTEXION® and XTRA-PERFORMANCE® ensure you get in more than 90 countries feed ingredients that enable you to meet today's demands for healthy and safer food products. We strongly emphasize on R&D & quality control.
PhD candidate position in close collaboration with industry (Baekeland mandate) on the development of blood-based biomarkers for the evaluation of intestinal health in broiler chickens.
Intestinal health of poultry has broad implications for the systemic health of birds, animal welfare, animal performances, food safety, and environmental impact. The gastrointestinal tract has digestive, absorptive, metabolic, immunological and endocrinological functions. In poultry production, major problems are of intestinal origin, including gut inflammation, dysbiosis and intestinal pathogens, including Salmonella and Clostridium perfringens. Besides, also mycotoxins and heat stress have been shown to have severe negative impact on intestinal health.

I am a dairy producer in the Americas, with about 2000 cows. My feed company had decided to buy corn of a new supplier and it contained severe toxin loads.
My cows were on 6 g/head/day Elitox® at the time. But they started to show T-2 type signs with bloody diarrhea throughout the herd and several cows died after being removed from the herd to the sick group.
I am an owner of 100 miniature horses in Australia. For the last few summers we have experienced a select few horses that exhibit stagger like symptoms. With a dominance of Perennial Ryegrass in our pasture and a history within the area, these horses were diagnosed with Perennial Ryegrass Toxicosis (PRGT), otherwise known as Ryegrass Staggers.
I am a pig farmer in Queensland and I use Elitox® routinely in sow and weaning diets to help manage the challenges that mycotoxins can cause.
It is also used on an “as needs” basis in further rations if raw materials are deemed to present a higher risk. Use in sows is to optimize both fertility of sows and liveability of young pigs. We have been previously contended with lesions and discoloration of ears, feet and tails in weaning pigs. We attributed this to mycotoxins.
