makes little difference what type is used. What
makes a difference, however, is how birds are
placed inside these containers.
They must be fully placed inside and equal
care needs to be taken with all birds. As each
subsequent bird is placed inside the cage or crate,
disturbance of those already inside needs to be
kept to a minimum if they are not to react aggressively. Wing flapping within the confinement of
the cage or container can be particularly harmful
for the bird.

Transport to the plant
Poor road surfaces or carelessness can lead to
the birds being jolted on their way to the processing plant. They will use their wings to help to
regain balance, which presents the same risks as
mentioned above.

At the processing plant
In the same way that birds can be stressed
during capture and transport, if their removal
from cages is handled poorly, wing flapping will
increase. Correct lighting levels can also help to
lower stress levels.

Proven efficacy

Biostrong® 510 EC: A safe feed additive
improves poultry performance traceably
Delacon was the first company to receive a zootechnical registration by the EU for a phytogenic product,
Fresta® F for pigs. In 2017, Delacon repeated this
success and impressively confirms its status as a
pioneer in phytogenic feed additives: The EU published the second authorization of a Delacon product
as zootechnical feed additive. Biostrong® 510 EC has
the potential to be efficacious in improving performance of chickens and minor avian species, both for
fattening and reared for laying. Extensive research
and high-level quality management are the basis for
achieving a zootechnical registration.

Improved performance

A failure to provide the correct conditions at the
slaughter plant will raise broilers' stress levels
and increases the risks of the final processed
carcass being downgraded.
