A great finish
Monteban™ is an ionophore that prevents coccidiosis, helping to protect Intestinal Integrity in the starter, grower and finisher feeds. Monteban™ can prevent subclinical coccidiosis, which can lead to acute outbreaks. Coccidiosis prevention also protects birds from enteritis, a prevalent, costly condition. The global economic impact of coccidiosis due to decreased performance and increased morbidity and mortality is estimated at $300 million.1
While coccidiosis is a risk throughout the bird’s lifecycle, older birds can be more vulnerable due to high coccidia counts in litter and a lack of immunity to late-breaking coccidia species.
A loss of Intestinal Integrity due to coccidia contributes to poor animal welfare and reduced feed efficiency, as nutrients are lost to malabsorption and fighting disease.
Using Monteban™ in the finisher feed reduces the risk of coccidiosis, protecting older birds’ Intestinal Integrity and helping producers deliver more Full Value Poultry™ to market.
