This video will discuss 3 things to expect when using ionophore programmes.
Ionophores are unique in that they allow some cycling of the coccidia while preventing clinical coccidiosis. Here’s 3 things to know when using ionophore programmes:
- Ionophores do not kill 100% of the Eimeria population so the immunity response can be established.
- Ionophores work in concert with the immune system. Level of lesions seen will depend on immunity of the bird and control of farm burden.
- Expect to see some lesions, but impact greatly reduced. Allows birds to maintain good gut health and performance.
