The trend to decrease antibiotic use in pig, ruminant, and poultry farms is definitely underway. To support this whole movement, Nutral has set up an innovative concept to achieve this aim through nutrition. This new approach is called ‘micro-immunonutrition’. In other words, ‘micro-immunonutrition’ is the process by which nutrients, which are essential to the body, are brought in specific quantities in order to support animal immunity.
How can we reduce successfully the exposure of farm animals to antibiotics while maintaining their performance and allowing farmers to work in the best possible conditions? Demedicalization is one of the major issues at stake in agriculture. Progress is underway and new approaches are emerging in order to further reduce animal exposure to antibiotics.
