the benefit of those who know
how to use them. At any rate,
the research on organic acids
replacing antibiotics goes back
several decades and it is rather
surprising to see new research
repeating basic treatment protocols where research should be
directed toward other areas of
organic acid nutrition.

a mix of products is required.
And, not only that, but feed
formulation and farm biosecurity changes also are needed to
make this something more than
another failed attempt to catch
up with modern times.

Organic acids

There is a plethora of
organic acids that have
been proven effective
against a host of microorganisms, especially against bacteria,
the targets of antibiotics. Here,
we will distinguish coccidiostatic products from traditional
antibiotics and refer to antibiotics only as non-coccidiostatics.
The main reason organic acids
are not used as much as they
should be is because they are

commodities and as such they
do not present a fertile ground
for extensive marketing and
differentiation. As such, their
inclusion level is always below
required levels and this gives
the impression that such acids
are ineffective. When used at
the right amounts and at the
right profile, they can become
very powerful tools against
most bacteria. It should be
noted that most nutritionists
agree that we require more than
one organic acid per feed, and
some even have evidence of
the need for a different profile
depending on basic feed formulation. Inorganic acids also
work well, but these require a
slightly different approach, and
they remain largely ignored, to

Phytogenic
compounds

Today, there are
myriad such products,
most of them as effective as
nothing. The few select products that work do so under the
right circumstances and dosage.
Here, we have the problem
that we cannot exceed certain
dosage levels or animals will
refuse eating. As such, we are
restricted to low dosages that
are often inadequate. To this
end, combining the right blend
of photogenic compounds with
certain organic acids has been
shown to confer a synergetic
effect, meaning their combination is working very effectively
- and this is backed up with
sufficient commercial experience throughout the past decade.
Lamentably, the market abounds
with non-effective proprietary
blends of photogenic compounds
that target the low-cost-minded
feed producer, especially those
who market feeds and nutritional supplements instead of
raising their own animals. For
this category of products, even
