In nature the chicken would consume an extremely wide variety of different things ranging from seeds and roots to insects and animals. This diet would provide all the nutrients necessary for survival, growth and reproduction enabling the chicken to thrive. This ideal diet is not reflected in modern poultry production units where economic and physical factors determine a very narrow range of ingredients are used in the diet. Typically, energy is provided by starch from cereals with vegetable oil being added to achieve necessary energy target. Little emphasis is given to the fatty acid profile required to meet the animal’s needs.
Essential Fatty Acid Supplement
The essential Omega-3 fatty acids have very important functions in poultry in reducing the growth depressing effects of various diseases, improving broiler performance, aiding fertility in male breeders and optimising leg bone and keel bone strength. The use of SALOMEGA with high levels of Omega-3 coming from salmon oil will help to redress the imbalance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids and to give a supplemental source of the long chain fatty acids EHA and DPA that are not present in any vegetable oil used in animal feed.
|Arachidonic acid||Linoleic acid|
Role and importance of EPA & DHA
EPA is a 20 carbon chain polyunsaturated essential fatty acid that acts as a precursor for series prostaglandin 3. Prostaglandins contain 20 carbon atoms and they have an important role in regulating many functions in the animal.
DHA is a 22 carbon chain fatty acid and is a primary structural component of the brain and retina. It is a major fatty acid in sperm meaning that a deficiency of this essential fatty acid in the diet will have a detrimental effect on both sperm quantity and quality.
