Effect of AVI-MUL TOP on growth performance of weaned piglets
AVI-MUL TOP can reduce the surface tension of water increasing its penetration and improving Its distribution in press meal.
This leads to increased humidity, reduced pellet press energy consumption and improved pellet quality.
Consequently, also feed intake and performance of animals are improved.
In order to prevent cross-contamination, control feed was produced first followed by production of the AVI-MUL TOP feed.
Care was taken to ensure feed homogeneity, especially in relation to fat addition.
Supplementing AVI-MUL TOP to piglets tended to improve body weight and average daily gain.
Moreover, AVI-MUL TOP addition significantly increased daily feed intake from 28 to 42 day.

The effects of an innovative emulsifier product on growth performance of chickens for fattening and weaned piglets
Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of an innovative emulsifier product (AVI-MUL TOP) on the growth performance of chickens for fattening and weaned piglets.
The emulsifier product consists of 50% vegetal bi-distillated oleic acid emulsified with 50% glyceryl polyethyleneglycol ricinoleate. In experiment 1, 480 1-day-old female Cobb500 chickens for fattening were assigned to two treatments: (1) a control diet (CTR); and (2) the control diet+ the emulsifier (AMT, 1 g/kg from day 0 to day 10, 0.75 g/kg from day 10 to day 20 and 0.5 g/kg from day 20 to day 34 of the trial).
AMT supplementation increased BW on days 20 and 34 (P< 0.01).
Dietary AMT increased the average daily gain and average daily feed intake (ADFI) from day 10 to day 20, from day 20 to day 34 and from day 0 to day 34 (P<0.01).
