In December 2022, we conducted a trial in a broiler farm to test the effectiveness of PhytoShield© as a growth promoter in finisher broilers.

Conditions of the trial

The experimental animals were 817 broilers (local breed); 74,000 animals in trial group and 74,000 animals in control group.

Treatment of the trial group: PhytoShield©, added to drinking water, from day 26 to 32. Animals were slaughtered when they were 36 days old.

Treatment of the control group: None.

All the other health, nutritional and management parameters, as well as the environmental conditions, were the same for both groups.
