We just started a trial with Delacon USA, a division of Delacon Biotechnik. Delacon is a phytogenic feed company. According to Delacon, “Phytogenics are standardized mixtures of herbs, spices, other plants, and their extracts with proven efficacy” (www.delacon.com/us). Here at SVR we have a background in animal science research, which fuels our passion for animal agriculture. Within the past year, we built a facility dedicated to conducting trials right here on the farm. For this project, we are using 20 lambs that will be offered a finishing diet with and without Actifor Power for 90 days. What is Actifor Power? It is a phytogenic that has been proven to reduce acidosis and improve performance. However, what impact does it have on the immune system and carcass quality? Stay tuned, we will find out.
