Benefits of Selenium on broilers immunity and performance
ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN ALL ABOUT FEED. Volume 39, No. 5, 2023
While modern broilers have been selectively bred for superior performance in terms of feed efficiency, growth rate, and meat yield, producers often overlook that this higher level of performance coincides with an increase in general metabolic, intestinal and immune stress. Replenishing broilers with supplemental dietary selenium (Se), in the form of hydroxy-selenomethionine (OH-SeMet), can help resolve these pressures.
