Thus, the programme first focused on those environmental factors that have a direct impact on the performance of animals and the importance to keep high-quality conditions to ensure their health and welfare.
“It is of utter importance that we keep very good environmental conditions of animals. This is indeed the way to solve many issues and challenges that we find in the farm, including also gut problems. Environmental factors have a direct impact on health, comfort and performance. Even if we do not address or identify any current disease in the farm, productivity of animals will be lower if they live under unhygienic conditions”, Mr Martin Greau, Olmix’s Technical Manager in Russia, explained.
As for gut health, specially when it comes to young ruminants, the expert raised the need to face this issue from the very first day of the production cycle and so prevent great consequences.
