Selection has highly improved productivity and poultry are becoming increasingly at risk for bacterial infections. Birds serve thus as major reservoirs for foodborne pathogens which reside as common groupings in the gastrointestinal tract.

Applied to poultry production, our Competitive Exclusion concept describes the protective effect of a normal healthy intestinal microflora against transient pathogenic bacteria.

AVIGUARD helps not only to establish but also to maintain or even restore a balanced microflora, after all kinds of challenges the birds will face throughout their life.
