Prevents coccidiosis to protect Intestinal Integrity

Monteban is an ionophore that prevents coccidiosis, which helps protect Intestinal Integrity in the starter, grower and finisher feeds. Monteban can prevent subclinical coccidiosis, which can lead to acute outbreaks. Coccidiosis prevention also protects birds from enteritis a prevalent, costly condition. The global economic impact of coccidiosis due to decreased performance and increased morbidity and mortality is estimated at $300 million.1

Monteban protects your investment in older birds

While coccidiosis is a risk throughout the bird’s lifecycle, older birds can be more vulnerable due to high coccidia counts in litter and lack of immunity to late-breaking coccidia species.2

A loss of Intestinal Integrity due to coccidia contributes to poor animal welfare and reduced feed efficiency, as nutrients are lost to malabsorption and fighting disease.

Using Monteban in the finisher feed reduces the risk of coccidiosis, protecting older birds’ Intestinal Integrity and helping producers deliver more Full Value Poultry™ to market.
