RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE CONTROL OF COLIBACILAR DIARRHEA (COLIBACILOSIS) AFTER THE WITHDRAWAL OF ZINC OXIDE
Zinc Oxide has been a great ally for pig farmers to date, since its high power to control the diarrhea produced by the Escherichia coli bacteria , guaranteed peace of mind at critical times when diarrhea occurs, such as during weaning and when entering the fattening phase.
Current European environmental pressure points to Zinc as a potentially toxic pollutant, additionally, there are studies that hold it responsible for the development of resistance to the use of antibiotics in infections due to Staphyloscoccus Aureus. This indicates that the withdrawal of Zinc Oxide will be effective shortly.
Good intestinal health and good handling of animals and facilities are the most effective measures against the fearsome diarrhea caused by E.coli.
From Additives for Farming we want to contribute our brief review of the measures that we consider the most important, so that the withdrawal of Zinc Oxide, which pig farmers will be forced to accept within in a brief period of time, will not constitute a problem for them.x
Management Measures after weaning:
Nutrition management measures after weaning:
Although the set of measures referred to above are effective for the control of Escherichia coli, to achieve maximum efficiency it is necessary to incorporate products that are Zinc Oxide substitutes.
That's why at AFF we have designed ACIDCONFORT, which with its high antibacterial power, guarantees absolute control over post-weaning diarrhea
