«Physiological and biochemical status, autarcesis, productivity indices of meat poultry and the pharmacorrection by probiotics and synbiotics»

Aim and objectives

Aim: To study the effects of new probiotics on physio­logical and bio­chemical status of the body, the natural resistance of chicken, goose, turkey and to develop effective, environ­mentally safe and cost–effective pharmacological correction methods of meat poultry productivity and quality of products in using Vetom 1.1, Vetom 13.1, organic selenium (Sel-Plex preparation) and synbiotics on the base of these preparations.
1. Define the content of selenium in locally produced plant feed, water, meat of goose, turkey and broiler.
2. To determine the effect of different VETOM 1.1 doses and dosing schedule on the physiological, biochemical and immune status in broiler chickens.
3. To evaluate the corrective activity of VETOM 1.1, VETOM 13.1 probiotics, SEL-PLEX preparation and synbiotics based on them, as well as to determine their effects on the clinical and immune status, indicators of homeostasis and antioxidant activity in geese.
4. To study the pharmacological effects of VETOM 1.1, SEL-PLEX and synbiotics based on them and to estimate their effects on the physiological and immune status, indicators of homeostasis and antioxidant activity in turkeys.
5. To determine the efficacy of synbiotics based on VETOM 1.1, VETOM 13.1, and the organic form of selenium.
6. To evaluate the quality of the products obtained (including the chemical composition of muscle tissue in poultry meat) and explore the possibility of selenium enrichment of meat geese and turkeys.
7. To reveal the patterns of the studied drugs effects on the physiological and biochemical status and natural resistance of the body in chicken broilers, geese and turkeys.
8. To determine the cost efficiency of use of VETOM 1.1, VETOM 13.1 with the organic form of selenium and synbiotics based on them as part of the diet to grow chickens, geese, turkeys and to develop the poultry farming technology to reduce the period of poultry growing.

The practical significance

The evidence-based doses and dosing schedules of VETOM 1.1, VETOM 13.1 and SEL-PLEX (an organic form of selenium) and synbiotics based on them as a part of the diet to increase the natural resistance, productivity and quality indices of chicken, goose and turkey meat products have been proposed. These drugs have a corrective effect on the physiological and biochemical status of the body, normalize metabolism, promote the production of organic meat products with high nutritional value.
The main findings were tried out in industrial poultry farming and have been introduced into a number of poultry farms of the Kemerovo region.
Materials in this research work provided the basis for scientific publications, including monographs, normative documents and guidelines.
