Orego-stim for Broilers

Developed to manage intestinal health, supporting optimum gut integrity and performance, Orego-Stim is a consistent high quality source of 100% natural Oregano Essential Oil.

Coccidiosis Control

Coccidiosis is a common issue for broiler producers worldwide and is estimated to result in global costs of $2-3 billion annually. Coccidial infection, and to a lesser extent coccidial vaccination, can significantly damage the gut wall lining. This can lead to the development of lesions which results in impaired nutrient absorption, reduced bird performance (due to poor feed conversion ratio), slower growth and can also result in higher flock mortality. Traditionally coccidiosis control has been via the use of chemicals, ionophores and vaccines.

Coccidiosis Lifecycle

Orego-Stim has been shown to not interfere with anticoccidial vaccine immunity and when used on its own or in combination with a vaccine, Orego-Stim assisted birds to achieve their genetic potential during a coccidiosis challenge. When administered in water, Orego-Stim has been shown to lessen the intestinal damage from coccidia leading to increased weight gain and lower lesion scores during challenge when compared to Robenidine treatment. Orego-Stim also still allows for coccidial recycling in the litter which is essential for the development of natural immunity against coccidiosis.

Orego-Stim Lowers Average Mortality (%)

Mortality was measured during a coccidial challenge.
It was found that birds fed diets supplemented with Orego-Stim coped with the challenge significantly better, with significantly lower mortality than broilers provided with only coccidiosis vaccination (Coccivac-B52) and performed as well as birds treated with Salinomycin in the absence of vaccination. 
The combination of vaccination and Orego-Stim supplementation at 300 g/tonne resulted in the lowest mortality, with a 2.8% lower mortality than Salinomycin or Orego-Stim (OS) without vaccination and an 11.1% lower mortality than vaccination alone.

Orego-Stim Can Support Your AGP Reduction Programme

Birds fed Orego-Stim in the absence of an AGP (BMD), when under a necrotic enteritidis challenge, resulted in:

  • +5 Point Improvement in FCR
  • +39g Bodyweight Increase
  • Matched the Performance of Birds Fed BMD

Meat Quality

Malonaldehyde (MDA) is a by-product of fat oxidation which is the main reason for meat deterioration and rancidity. Orego-Stim has antioxidant properties and has been shown to lower MDA, indicating improved oxidative stability in stored breast and thigh meat. The inclusion of Orego-Stim in broiler diets could be a natural tool for improved meat quality and shelf life of breast and thigh meat.

Litter Quality

Ensuring optimal litter quality is fundamental in supporting broilers to reach their genetic potential. Wet litter provides an ideal environment for bacteria to thrive and also plays a role in ammonia and odour production. It can cause welfare issues, such as an increased risk of footpad dermatitis and breast blisters in addition to reduced performance and downgrades. Wet litter also promotes the proliferation of bacteria, yeasts and moulds which can result in impaired broiler health. Supporting the development and maintenance of a diverse and well-populated gut microbiome, thus supporting good gut health, plays a key role in litter quality. Any disease challenge of the gut will exacerbate wet litter problems, therefore, a natural feed additive solution, such as Orego-Stim, which helps to support gut health can have an impact on improving litter quality.

Orego-Stim Production and Quality

Not all oregano is the same

It is well known that the essential oils from oregano plants across the world can vary widely in the content and concentration of the active compounds. This variation can depend on location, soil type, climate and altitude amongst other things. Several studies have been carried out examining this issue with the same conclusions, that using oil from different sources, at different times of year, would give very different finished products.

Consistency in every batch

Oregano Essential Oil used to produce Orego-Stim consists of 100+ naturally occurring active compounds, frequent monitoring ensures consistent quality batch after batch, which is vital to ensure product performance.
