Efficiency of various feed additives on the performance of broilers treated with T-2 toxin
Nešić K., Resanović R., Jakić-Dimić D., Nešić V.
Experiment was conducted on 160 one-day-old broiler chicks "Ross"
proveniention during 21 day. This research was done with the aim to
investigate performances of broilers exposed to the relatively small amount
of T-2 toxin (2 mg/kg) and the possibility of prevention and/or alleviating
its adverse effects by using various feed additives. Results showed negative
consequences of T-2 toxin on body weight, weight gain, feed: gain ratio. All
used feed additives in the concentration of 0.2% in feed: inorganic
(Minazel-plus, Mz) and organic (Mycosorb, Ms) adsorbents, as well as mixed
adsorbent (Mycofix-plus, Mf) mostly alleviated negative effects of T-2 toxin.
Keywords: T-2 toxin, broiler, performances, adsorbents
