containing a high portion of lignan rich bark. In the digestive tract of broilers, and of piglets as well as of growing-finishing pigs, wood lignans act anti-inflammatory and inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria. In a sophisticated production process Zinc is used as a catalyst for activation of these wood lignans, which enhances their power to reduce or scavenge free radicals, to inhibit lipid peroxidation and to prevent the formation of hydroxyl radicals. A combination of these antioxidative and anti-inflammatory effects enables agromed速 ROI to efficiently improve feed conversion in livestock animals due to optimizing their gut functions. Moreover, diminished pathogenic counts in broiler faeces after a dietary supplementation of agromed速 ROI indicate a reduced bacterial competition for nutrients, which in turn contributes to a better
feed conversion. Since this natural product is fully recovered from wood, the lignan-containing agromed速 ROI offers a high potential to be used in a feeding concept as a safe alternative to reduce antibiotic use. Agromed速 Austria GmbH, as the market leader in wood-based lignocellulose feed stuff, additionally provides specialized solutions for optimized livestock feeding by promoting gut functionality and gut health for best performance and consequently for highest rentability.

It is a blend of rumen protected B-vitamins and palatability enhancers and it is added to minerals or in feed and recommended for cows producing more than 29 litres of milk daily in early or mid lactation, but it can be included in rations of all lactating cows. Its main function is to support glucose production in the liver from the rumen-produced fatty acid propionate. Around 85% of gluconeogenesis occurs in the liver, and glucose is the main energy source used in milk production. Improving the efficiency of this process makes more energy available for milk production. Cargill trials on more than 1,000 dairy cows have shown improvements in milk production of 1.8kg per day in early lactation and by 1.2kg per day in mid lactation where Turbopro has been added
animal performance. Each batch is analysed using HPLC which then determines the further treatment pathway, leading to an eventual match against the required polysulphide blueprint. This safeguards consistency and stabilises the naturally volatile compounds that drive garlic activity. Fresh garlic is inherently variable in terms of its polysulphide profile and coupled with standard processing methods and storage means that the key volatiles are often not present or not in high enough quantities to influence animal health. Compared to standard garlic sources the Alliclove blueprint incorporates normally fragile polysulphides that have higher activity. Due to their volatility these are rarely present after the generic processing of traditional sources, making Clovex Garlic Salt® a more complete and efficacious ingredient. Alliclove is food grade, completely natural and is registered to European Annex 1 standards and has FEMAS certification. It provides x12 to x40 the activity compared to that of some other sources.
