Phycom can help you develop feed products with microalgae for chicks, piglets and calves. Young animals are vulnerable in the first few weeks of life. It is in the start-up phase that they have the greatest need for feeds that enhance health and performance. A strong start can potentially reduce the use of medication such as antibiotics. A great deal of research is being carried out worldwide into the health effects of microalgae in animal feed. Wageningen UR has shown in an in vitro study that microalgae have positive effects on the immune system. This in turn has positive effect on animal health. Phycom microalgae have consistent quality and superior purity.
Benefits of microalgae in feed for young livestock:
Improved health: there are indications that microalgae in feed improve gut health and activate the immune system
Improved performance: faster growth and better feed conversion
Sustainability: microalgae are a natural, sustainable ingredient
