Description:

Justin Fowler (University of Georgia) discussed his research on butyric acid and its protective effect against necrotic enteritis, while also comparing two applications (water and feed), during IPPE 2018 in Atlanta, USA.

It's clear that butyric acid can improve gut health but it should be reach to the intestine. Water application without protection how can work perfectly?

it is write that Butyric acid supports the health and healing of cells in the small and large intestine. It’s also favored source of fuel for the cells lining the interior of the large intestine or colon but in viral out break it cant resist to virus so more research is required !......

can any body tell me at what point calcium is absorbed in broilers gut

The use of this synthetic product {butyrate} improves the gut performance for sure but we need to look at the residual effect on the body of the birds and its effect on the meat quality of the bird.

Eguaoje abiodun stanley There was a USDA study on meat quality. No residues were found in the meat tissue of birds given this product. The improvement effects on the body of the birds is also easily measurable with standard metrics.

I think the best coating of the butyrates (calcium or sodium) is the coating with high melting point fats. They are not digested in the stomach and the enzymes are doing their work in the small intestine. There are no negativ effects on meat quality, butyrates are a natural product that is produced in the animal itself.

Thanks for sharing your findings, dr. Fowler. I’m looking forward to the outcomes of your follow-up trials, and especially to the results on physiological and cell biological analyses that may underlie the observed benefits on health and performance. These are likely to be different for different butyrate products.
Many tissues and cell types are potentially responsive to butyrate; the place where butyrate is absorbed and delivered will then determine which cells will be triggered, and which physiological responses will be modulated.
A Ph.D.-student from Wageningen, Pierre Moquet, has recently looked into this. He found that products with a distinct butyrate release profile (unprotected butyrate, butyrate glycerides and precision-delivery coated butyrate) trigger different effects at the level of immune responses, gut microbial composition, digestive processes and amino acid availability.
Studies as these and as the one described by dr. Fowler will be instrumental in defining what can be expected from different butyrate products, under several animal health status and rearing conditions.

I have a product having Ca Butyrate but it is used in feed.

It is not for drinking water. Can you tell me the differnce in results if we are using in feed ?

This product is unique in the world and has US and EU patented technology that allows for longer and multi-point release throughout the GI tract, without the use of fats or coatings and with minimal smell.

Nice comments by all participants. It's a right step in move toward AGP free broiler production. As mentioned both a and Na based Butyrate is effective normally commercial brands recommend 200 to 300 gms per but here we are discussing 500 to 1000 gms per ton of feed increasing the dosage rate will substantially increase the cost. My question to Dr. Piotr what is the concentration of Ca/Na Butyrate in a product you are using, sorry to mention brand name Kemin Butipearl is 50% and Morel product is 70% a score more products are in the market
Please make it clear.
Thanks
