SPACE: Lallemand launches probiotic for use in drinking water

13-09-2011 | | |

At the annual French livestock show SPACE, Lallemand Animal Nutrition presents an addition to its probiotic product line Bactocell as from now on it is also available for use in drinking water for poultry and pigs.

The novel product Bactocell Drink is a specific water soluble probiotic formulation consisting of the lactic acid bacteria Pediococcus acidilactici CNCM MA 18/5M. It can be used for broilers, layers, piglets and finishers.

The novel formula allows a speedy intervention and offers flexibility in usage for farm staff as the product can be added directly into the drinking water. Both dosage and moment in time can thus be determined exactly.

In addition, especially in the case of just-weaned piglets, first days post-weaning are full of stress and irregularity – and providing ample amounts of water is paramount in these days. In this case, probiotic supplementation through the water allows the piglet to receive an adapted dose in this first timeframe after weaning. This will lead to an optimised gut flora and provide a healthy start for his growth.

Daily addition of the probiotic through the water gives the assurance that every animal receives the optimal dose of the lactic bacteria.

Lallemand Animal Nutrition can be found at SPACE in Hall 5, Stand D82.
