Magni-Phi (Phibro Animal Health) is a triterpenoid saponin feed additive that has been shown to exert anticoccidial effects in broilers. A series of four floor pen studies was carried out to evaluate the efficacy and performance responses of Magni-Phi (MP) when used in combination with a standard coccidiosis vaccination program. Trials 1 and 2 were designed to assess the effects of MP (0 and 250 p ...

Affected young broilers may experience tremors, blindness, ataxia, and coma; most are hypoglycemic (Davis et al., 1995).
