Phase 1


Programme the gut microbiome


Animal gut microbes play a key role in imprinting immunity. AuraPoultry is a scientifically formulated Eubiotic safeguarding a healthy gut microflora. How does it work?

Scientific research shows that AuraPoultry stimulates the beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. As a result, more mucus is secreted to create a sealed barrier in the broiler intestine. This makes it more difficult for pathogenic bacteria to invade and attach themselves to the gut intestine. AuraPoultry has been proven to impact the motility of pathogenic bacteria. Hence, the beneficial microflora has more space and thereby promoting a healthy gut microflora. Therefore, AuraPoultry supports the immunity of broiler chickens and reduces the risk for infection and disesases, such as Campylobacter and E.Coli.



Phase 2


Maximise genetic potential and watch them grow


A favourable gut microbiome is essential for nutrition and development.

A favourable gut microflora will determine the health status of any animal livestock business, and will ultimately determine the profitability. AuraPoultry helps to overcome stressful situations for chickens, and enables your broilers to maximise their genetic potential. Scientific and field research with broilers show that AuraPoultry improves performance very significantly. Better feed conversion ratios (FCR) are obtained. With AuraShield your broiler chickens remain healthy and grow better from the same amount of feed consumed. These growth performance benefits are explained by the fact that AuraPoultry improves the integrity of gut epithelial cells, resulting in a higher surface area for nutrient absorption. Every animal benefits with AuraPoultry, no matter what production level you are at.



Phase 3


Reduces the need for antibiotics


AMR is a major global concern, and has been identified as one of the most serious threats to the maintenance of human and animal health in the future.

In January 2022 a new European regulation will come into effect to ban the prophylactic use of antibiotics in farm animals. AuraPoultry is a natural animal feed ingredient, which contributes to the global mission of reducing the need for antibiotics in farm animals. AuraPoultry is safe and may be used until the final stage of production. Animals that receive AuraPoultry show healthy looking organs, resulting in a higher percentage of acceptations and a higher return on investment. Overall, AuraPoultry meets the demand of poultry integrators, and also satisfies consumers’ growing demand for safe, sustainable, affordable and antibiotic-free animal proteins.

Hence, the beneficial microflora has more space and thereby promoting a healthy gut microflora. Therefore, AuraShield boosts immunity and reduces the risk for infection and animal livestock disesases.



Phase 2


Maximise genetic potential and watch them grow


An optimum intestinal microbiome is essential for nutrition and development.

AuraShield ensures a healthy balance of microbiota in the gastrointestinal tract. Histological studies confirm that our products support intestinal integrity and enlarges the surface for nutrient absorption. Boosting animal immunity and enhancing a healthy microbiota from the first day of life helps to keep animals healthy and achieve optimal performance. Our products should be provided to the animal from the first day of feeding. This enables producers to maximise the genetic potential of their livestock, which results in better feed conversion and weight gain. Research on AuraShield shows that FCR improves significantly, with levels up to 0.10 pt and feed conversion as low as 1.51 kg/kg.



Phase 3


Reduces the need for antibiotics


Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major global concern, due to its impact on human health.

AuraShield is a natural animal feed ingredient that contributes to the global mission of reducing the need for antibiotics in farm animals. AuraShield is safe and may be used until the final stage of production. Animals that receive our products show healthy looking organs, resulting in a higher percentage of acceptations and a higher return on investment. Our products meet the demand of poultry and pig integrators, and also satisfies consumers’ growing demand for safe, sustainable, affordable and antibiotic-free animal proteins.

Phase 1

Scientifically imprint performance
for future productivity

Phase 2

Transform whole milk and milk
replacers from good to great

Phase 3

Maximise genetic potential
and watch them grow


Phase 1


Scientifically imprint performance for future productivity

The first eight weeks of life is an important window of opportunity to increase future cattle performance. AuraCalf helps to reduce the “immunity gap” of your dairy youngstock from the first day of feeding.

Various scientific studies confirm the value of this imprinting strategy. Van Amburgh (2014) observed a direct link between healthy calf rearing and first lactation:


  • Up to 3 months earlier calving
  • 100 g extra weight brings 100 kg more milk yield
  • 500 kg extra milk when calves are reared free of antibiotics
  • Up to 7% extra return on capital

Scientific research shows that AuraCalf promotes calf weight gain, reduces calf mortality rates and reduces the need for medication and vet treatments during the youngstock rearing phase.



Phase 2


Transforms whole milk and milk replacers from good to great

During the initial phase, calves, lambs and goat kids depend on a liquid diet. Digestive enzymes utilise the valuable feed nutrients for their growth.

Using AuraCalf in young animal nutrition ensures a smooth transition from a liquid to a solid diet. At this stage, AuraCalf enables the calf to develop immunologically active compounds that improve the structure and functioning of a healthy digestive system.

Hence, AuraCalf creates a healthy gut microbiome. This supports a healthier and earlier development of the intestine and the rumen, for improved calf health and productivity.



Phase 3


Maximise genetic potential and watch them grow


AuraCalf improves the quality of young animal nutrition programmes by imprinting future performance. This helps young animal livestock get through critical phases in life.

AuraCalf strengthens the immune system of calves and animal livestock. This allows for maximum genetic potential during later stages in life. As a result, AuraCalf benefits animal health at all stages of production. A calf trial was recently conducted at a dairy farm. This farm had been selected for its excellent management practices and the superior health of its livestock. AuraCalf was provided in the milk replacer from the first day of feeding. As a result, calves showed a significant increase in average weight gain.

With AuraCalf, a good start is half the battle!
