In a news release, Avivagen Inc. (VIV:TSX.V; VIVXF:OTCQB) announced that the benefits of its OxC-beta product for broiler poultry will be highlighted in a paper to be published in an upcoming Poultry Science issue. The company noted that Poultry Science is an internationally known, peer-reviewed journal.
"This publication provides an additional level of scientific validation supporting the commercially meaningful benefits of using OxC-beta for broiler poultry, providing additional value to Avivagen's current and future customers committed to eliminating or reducing antibiotic use in their operations," Avivagen CEO Kym Anthony said in the release.
Titled "Effect of Oxidized β-Carotene (OxBC) on the Growth and Feed Efficiency of Broilers," the article will report the positive results of two studies in which the diet of broiler poultry was supplemented with OxC-beta.
The first trial was done in Ontario, Canada, the second in Scotland. In both, birds were raised in typical commercial environments relative to the locale.
When compared to birds in control groups, the birds that received OxC-beta showed significantly better growth performance as measured by average daily weight gain, efficiency in using feed and other metrics.
"These findings demonstrate that dietary supplementation with OxC-beta helps broiler poultry achieve their full growth potential under real world commercial conditions without the use of antibiotics," the release noted.
