Changing Landscape and Innovative Managemental Strategies of Toxicities in Poultry:

Technical session organized by Venky’s India Limited

Venky’s India Limited Organized Technical Seminars on 24th & 27th April at Raipur and Karnal. The seminars were led by Dr Joseph Garcia, technical manager at Special Nutrient, USA. The theme of seminars was on “Changing multiple toxicities in feed and its mitigation strategies” 

Dr Joseph Garcia started his presentations on “Toxin in Poultry” by showing some of the Photographs of the post mortem lesion caused by mycotoxicity in poultry. These Photographs of post mortem lesions given clear idea about different lesions in different organs by different mycotoxins. He also talked about the prevalence of different toxins in the feed and how Biobantox and Biobantox Plus can play a critical role in the toxicity prevention and management in poultry.

Afterwards Dr. Joseph Garcia updated about the endotoxins and their importance in poultry production. The endotoxins disrupt gut health in poultry. Endotoxins, also known as lipopolysaccharides (LPS), are part of the outer membrane of the cell wall of all gram-negative bacteria (e.g. E. coli, Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Pseudomonas spp., among others) that are released from bacterial cell wall by shedding or through bacterial lysis. As the gram-negative bacteria are part of poultry microbiota, lipopolysaccharides (LPS) are also present in the intestine. Under eubiosis, this does not affect animals negatively because intestinal epithelial cells are poorly responsive to Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) when stimulated from the apical side.

Endotoxins are released in systemic circulation from gram negative bacteria whenever we use antibiotics against these the gram negative bacteria. These released endotoxin in systemic circulation of birds, affects their health and reproduction. In vitro and in vivo studies of Biobantox plus has shown binding efficiency against endotoxins (Lipopolysaccharides). Endotoxins, Pesticides and Mycotoxins adversely affect the immune system and performance of the birds. He concluded that Biobantox plus is very effective to bind Endotoxin along with adsorption of mycotoxins and pesticide, thus keeping the birds health in good condition.

Dr Joseph Garcia also mentioned about immunosuppression caused by mycotoxins and subsequent vaccine failures. He emphasized that one should be very careful while selecting a toxin binder as  some agent such as activated charcoal if included as a toxin binder may have  deleterious effects on health by binding the nutrients such as vitamins and minerals from the feed. Biobantox Plus takes care of mycotoxins, Endotoxins & Pesticides and helps in maintaining optimal health of the birds resulting in better performance.  

The seminar at Raipur was attended by field veterinarians, broiler breeders, broiler integrators and layer farmers. Mr. K.G. Anand (GM, VHPL) gave introductory speech. The seminar was co-ordinated by Dr Vishwas Sagajkar (DGM) and Dr Hemanth Murade (DGM). The lamp lightening was done by Mr K.G. Anad, Dr Bhindwale (GM, Phoenix group), Mr Govind Chandrakar and Mr Sanjay Bramhankar. Mr Manish Pottdar (ZM) offered vote of thank for attending the seminar. 

The Seminar was attended by field Veterinarians, Consultants, Layer farmers, broiler Breeders and Broiler integrators. Mr Shashi Bhushan welcomed all the guests.The lamp lighting was done by Dr Danveer (GM production), Mr Bisla and Dr Sagajkar  In opening remark, Dr. Vishwas Sagajkar (DGM Marketing) introduced Dr Joseph Garcia and given brief about importance of mycotoxin control in poultry production.

At the end, Dr Vishwas Sagajkar thanked everyone for attending the seminar and concluded with positive results and excellent ROI of Biobantox and Biobantox Plus in poultry feed

The seminar received massive response from the poultry farmers, veterinarian and consultants.  In all the seminars queries from the participants were discussed in details.
