Importance of maximizing the anticoccidial prevention and light during the rearing period

All the versions of this article: [English] [français]

Coccidiosis is a global disease rampant in farms where hygiene conditions are poor. It has a direct impact on the food consumption and hence slower growth and production. It is therefore important for the preparation of his future laying maximize on prevention with coccidiostats and hygiene measures. GVS SA presents a antiticcocidien in its range of products we invite you to discover.

Alecid: this is an anticoccidial whose active ingredient is very active sulphaquinoxaline and pyrimethamine on coccidia. The pyrimethamine and sulphaquinoxaline block the synthesis of vitamin B9 (folate) needed for multiplication of schizonts (as coccidia). That is why the Alecid is effective on all species of coccidia.

Prevention, simply administer 1ml/litre water animals for 5 days. In case of severe coccidiosis, it is advisable to resume treatment after a break of 3 days.

Beside the Alecid, we also talk about how to apply the following day length Benin lighting program. Light is fundamental for the period of breeding and production for these reasons: increased feed consumption and promoting growth and development of the crop and the control of sexual maturity. Given the variation in the length of day in Benin, the declining light program is easier and less costly for farmers. Depending on the age of the birds and the period in which it is located, it will simply adjust the illumination duration.
