Common Problems

Providing alternative Protein sources

We work towards ensuring economic production of alternative protein sources because the population of human kind is increasing everyday while arable land and other sources shrinking so there is a need to optimise the productivity of food source stocks we have .At same time both producer and consumer should be in balance of investment and profits

Antimicrobial Resistance

One of the most important concerns faced by human kind is disproportionate use of antimicrobial agents in animal farming which results into deposition of these antimicrobial in sub therapeutical level in protein sources and while consumed by human beings results into emergence of Superbugs. we work towards finding best solutions which can lessen down and replace the usage of Antimicrobials for growth promotion

Safe and sustainable food production

A.        Reducing cost of treatment:

Once the approach changes from treatment to prevention, the overall cost of treatment can be controlled considerably.
It’s well known that the livestock fed with better nutrition have better immunity comparatively and hence less prone to diseases.

B.        Reducing Feed formulation cost:

Feed accounts for more than 60 % of total operations cost in any type of livestock farming. If the raw materials are chosen wisely and the digestibility of raw materials used can be enhanced, the cost of feed formulations can be considerably reduced. This can be done by using substrate specific single or combination of enzymes which are offered by Adyarv.

C.     Gut health modulation
  • Restore gut health:  Once the feed with better digestibility is offered , the gut health should be optimum so as to absorb the digested nutrients and lessen down wastage of expensive feed in form of faecal matter. This can be done by using Probiotics (Direct Fed Microbial ), Gut stabilizers , Gut pH Modulators and many more approaches.
  • Priming of gut:  The Gut of a newborn is sterile unless it gets exposed to feed and water which may act as source of primary infection. Priming of Gut with useful Microbes has been found to reduce the occurrence of Neonatal Diarrhea which causes early life mortality in chicks and new borns. 
  • Restoring Eubiosis:  After treatment of any disease with antimicrobials, the Eubiosis gets disturbed which needs to be regained to restore normal gut physiology and functions .This can be done by feeding a combination of Prebiotics and Probiotics in form of symbiotic which helps in faster generation of useful microflora.
  • Increasing length or number of villi:  Idea is to increase the surface area of absorption of Nutrients which are released by action of digestive enzymes on feed fed to animals /Birds. Many agents like Butyric Acids and its derivatives are known to increase the length and No. Of Microvilli per unit area. Many bacterial species while fed as DFMs are also known to induce similar actions.
  • Reducing Growth of harmful microbes:  pH of the gut plays a very important role along with the oxygen saturation to decide the growth of types of microbes which may be useful or harmful. If the PH of gut is maintained on acidic side – many of harmful microbes cannot survive .This can be done by using Buffered organic acids. 

D.    Prevention of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)
Antimicrobials were being used in sub-therapeutic levels to retard the growth of microbes and promote overall body growth ,Numerous agents like Herbs , essential Oils , Probiotics ,Prebiotics , Organic Acids ,plasmids etc. are been used with latest applications to prevent the development of AMRs .

E.    Liver management (Transformation) 

A sound Liver forms a base of healthy growth .Liver acts as a transformation house where conversion of feed protein to body protein happens and hence is directly involved in impacting FCR. A lot of agents like Choline and other agents with Hepatoprotective, Hepatic Regenerative and hepatostimulative actions are being used in industry nowadays.

F.     Stress management
Livestock’s reared for productivity can’t perform to their standards as they are subjected to various types of stresses on a daily basis .Some of them may be transportation , disease , feed change , overcrowding , climatic stress etc .All these stresses will impact their performance adversely .There are multiple approaches towards reducing these stress in addition to managemental practices like :
  • Electrolytes: Adding electrolytes to the flock’s drinking water for 3-5 days is known to reduce stress and improve their productivity.
  • Essential oils: Its been observed that the essential oils while fed to birds / animals or sprayed in animal houses have stress relieving properties due to their coolant affect and antimicrobial properties .Additionally their aroma helps in reducing the stress due to accumulation of gases like Methane and Ammonia .

Proactive approach towards disease prevention

Biosecurity: in order to have optimised farming, the occurrence of disease in a farm needs to be prevented. This can be done by ensuring better biosecurity in Water, Feed as well as in farm Environment as they affect the growth and performance directly.


A.     Water:  Organic acids such as Formic acid and Propionic acid are particularly effective at controlling E. coli and Salmonella, whereas lactic acid and butyric acid are important in promoting beneficial lactobacilli in the gut microflora. Additionally they help in reducing the pH of cut hence control growth of harmful microbes.

Essential oils in water are known to exert a broad spectrum of beneficial biological effects in livestock animals, such as: anti-inflammatory activity, antioxidant activity, gut microbiota modulation, improvement in gut barrier function. 


B.  Feed:   With the concept of Palletization, feed is much more bio-secure than previous times. However, presence of thermostable mycotoxins as well as bacterial spores still deteriorate the feed quality and have direct impact on vital organs of livestock hence impact their performance. Some of the possible approaches are:

Toxin binder refers to a substance added to poultry feed in minute quantities that is able to neutralize or immobilize harmful chemicals, mycotoxins or endotoxins (lipopolysaccharides) within a bird’s gastrointestinal tract, thus avoiding negative consequences.  

Organic acids control and prevent fungal growth by lowering pH of feed. They also enhance digestibility of nutrients by lowering pH of gut. This aids digestibility of proteins and thus increases availability of amino acids

Probiotics are the bacteria which are useful to gut health and hence modulates gut health for better absorption of nutrients released after digestion of feed.

Pellet binder effectively reduces mycotoxins in feed as binding helps in less exposure of feed to moisture. In addition to it while pellet binding process feed goes through very high temperatures which degrades the fungal spores.

Essential oils inactivates bacteria like S.enteridis, C.jejuni & reduces colonization, while Carvacrol has action against C.perfringens & E.coli. They down-regulate toxin producing genes, modulates transcriptional repressor and modifies bacterial membranes, thus arrest bacterial multiplication.

c.   Litter:   Broilers and Layers in initial stages spend almost whole of their life in a bedding material known as litter .This material acts as a potential source of infection to them and may precipitate infections like E coli, Salmonella, Coccidia and Necrotic Enteritis .An effective litter management and addition with some moisture absorbents like Yucca helps in reducing chances of such infections. 

D.  Air:    Fumigation of poultry houses with Essential oils improved hygiene and animal welfare, which suggests that EOs can be used as disinfecting agents to eliminate respiratory pathogens from air.

Optimization of health status

Health disorders in Livestock result in economic losses for all stakeholders. Metabolic disorders arise as a result of improper metabolic processes within the livestock body. Some of the important points in management are:

A.      Kidney management:  Gout is still one of the major causes for huge mortality and morbidity in poultry, causing great monetary losses to the producers.

The producer should be proactive enough to include optimal additives/supplements in water that would aid in cutting down the usual mortality pattern. Any practice that encourages flushing out uric acid crystals should be adopted.

B.      Calcium Management:  Even though it is practically impossible to eliminate hypocalcemia from a dairy herd, the adoption of strategies that prevent this health disorder is key to any successful transition cow program. Nutritional and management strategies can decrease the losses it causes and optimize post calving health, milk production and reproductive performance.

Oral calcium supplements are used to mitigate the effects of both forms of hypocalcemia. Oral calcium supplements are appropriate for cows displaying early clinical signs of hypocalcemia and prophylactically to lessen the negative impacts of hypocalcemia.

C.       Wound management: The treatment of skin wounds is becoming very popular domain owing to the important functional and aesthetic role of this tissue. If not treated in time, it may complicate to maggoted wounds and lameness .Using Herbal and essential oil based sprays is helping in better wound managment without any deleterious impacts on health of animals.

D.      Fly management:  Fly infestations pose a significant challenge for farm operations. These flies acts as potential carriers of infections between farms and also acts as irritant for livestock thereafter impacts productivity .Use of Essential oil can help in better fly management.

E.      Anti-bloat:  Bloat is a form of indigestion marked by excessive accumulation of gas in the rumen. It needs to be treated urgently at time and use of Herbs and spices are effectively used to manage bloat conditions in cattle.
