Consumers are demanding animal proteins and products free from antibiotics.

TruGro® by Layn® feed additives have been developed as consumers demand more natural ingredients. TruGro® by Layn® offers proprietary blends of natural polyphenol-rich extracts with scientifically validated functionalities:

Main challenges for Poultry:

  • Oxidation is a naturally occurring, irreversible process in which lipids in animal feed degrade over time when exposed to air. As feed degrades, it loses nutritional value and becomes rancid, affecting palatability and feed intake, which can lead to a damaging impact on animal health, immunity, nutrition and growth.
  • Across the world, the growing restricted use of Antibiotic Growth Promoters (AGPs) is challenging broiler producers to find new, natural solutions, without compromising performance.
  • Broilers will have to expend additional energy to counteract the oxidative stress caused by feed that has spoiled due to elevated intercellular levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) that will cause damage to lipids, proteins and DNA.
  • Inflammatory syndromes may be linked to the use of unsaturated oils as energy sources in poultry feed, especially from vegetable sources. Inflammation is a natural reaction that occurs when reactive molecules from oxidized feed consumed by the broilers comes into contact with tissues in the intestinal tract that can cause damage to the tight junction proteins which serve as a protective barrier. This damage opens up a passage for toxins and microorganisms to invade the inner layers of the intestine, which can compromise the health and growth of the broil.

THE BENEFICIAL EFFECT OF TruGro® EQ ON EGG QUALITY & PRODUCTION CYCLE IMPROVEMENT

TruGro® EQ is a natural polyphenol-rich botanical extract feed additive scientifically supported to improve laying hen productivity life and lay rate in hens older than 80 weeks, Feed to Egg Conversion Ratio (FCR), egg weight, and internal egg quality, including albumen quality, yolk color, cholesterol content, and lipid profile.

THE BENEFICIAL EFFECT OF TruGro® HS ON REDUCING THE EFFECTS OF HEAT STRESS

TruGro® HS is a potent, polyphenol-rich botanical extract animal feed additive designed to reduce the effects of severe heat stress by reducing intestinal oxidation, increasing antioxidant enzymes, improving feed intake, and mitigating growth rate reductions typically caused by heat stress. TruGro® HS is available for both feed and water.

THE BENEFICIAL EFFECT OF TruGro® MYC ON REDUCING THE PATHOGENIC EFFECTS OF MYCOTOXINS IN PRODUCTION ANIMALS

TruGro® MYC is a potent, polyphenol-rich botanical extract animal feed additive designed to reduce the negative effects of mycotoxins on production animals. TruGro® MYC contains potent metabolic antioxidants scientifically supported to reduce the negative pathenogenic effects of mycotoxins, protect liver function, and reduce immunosuppression. TruGro® MYC is compatible with mold inhibitors and binders.

THE BENEFICIAL EFFECT OF TruGro® MAX ON BODY WEIGHT AND MEAT QUALITY IMPROVEMENT

TruGro® MAX is a feed additive platform that includes natural solutions based in polyphenol rich extracts as metabolic antioxidants to improve feed efficiency and meat quality. TruGro® MAX is designed to improve broiler body weight and meat quality in terms of pH levels, texture, and moisture retention. Contact us for study details.

Main challenges for Swine:

  • Oxidation is a naturally occurring, irreversible process in which lipids in animal feed degrade over time when exposed to air. As feed degrades, it loses nutritional value and becomes rancid, affecting palatability and feed intake, which can lead to a damaging impact on animal health, immunity, nutrition and growth.
  • Across the world, the growing restricted use of Antibiotic Growth Promoters (AGPs) is challenging pig producers to find new, natural solutions, without compromising performance.
  • Inflammatory syndromes may be linked to the use of unsaturated oils as energy sources in pig feed, especially from vegetable sources. Inflammation is a natural reaction that occurs when reactive molecules from oxidized feed consumed by the swine comes into contact with tissues in the intestinal tract that can cause damage to the tight junction proteins which serve as a protective barrier. This damage opens up a passage for toxins and microorganisms to invade the inner layers of the intestine, which can compromise the health and growth of the swine.
  • Weaning is a critical phase for young animals.  Piglets are usually weaned at the age of 3 to 4 weeks, and at this stage, their gut is not yet fully mature nor able to completely digest solid complex nutrition.  The main challenge is to stimulate feed intake in order to promote gut maturation, and thus, piglet health and growth.

THE BENEFICIAL EFFECT OF TruGro® PW ON POST-WEANING ZINC OXIDE REPLACEMENT

TruGro® PW is a potent, polyphenol-rich botanical extract animal feed additive scientifically supported in vivo to be an effective, natural replacement for zinc oxide (ZNO). All natural TruGro® PW can be effectively used at a lower inclusion rate than ZnO and leaves no environmental residues.

THE BENEFICIAL EFFECT OF TruGro® HS ON REDUCING THE EFFECTS OF HEAT STRESS

TruGro® HS is a potent, polyphenol-rich botanical extract animal feed additive designed to reduce the effects of severe heat stress by reducing intestinal oxidation, increasing antioxidant enzymes, improving feed intake, and mitigating growth rate reductions typically caused by heat stress. TruGro® HS is available for both feed and water.

THE BENEFICIAL EFFECT OF TruGro® MAX ON BODY WEIGHT AND MEAT QUALITY IMPROVEMENT

TruGro® MAX is a feed additive platform that includes natural solutions based in polyphenol rich extracts as metabolic antioxidants to improve feed efficiency and meat quality. TruGro® MAX is designed to improve body weight and meat quality in terms of pH levels, texture, and moisture retention. Contact us for study details.

THE BENEFICIAL EFFECT OF TruGro® MYC ON REDUCING THE PATHOGENIC EFFECTS OF MYCOTOXINS IN PRODUCTION ANIMALS

TruGro® MYC is a potent, polyphenol-rich botanical extract animal feed additive designed to reduce the negative effects of mycotoxins on production animals. TruGro® MYC contains potent metabolic antioxidants scientifically supported to reduce the negative pathenogenic effects of mycotoxins, protect liver function, and reduce immunosuppression. TruGro® MYC is compatible with mold inhibitors and binders.

Main challenges for Ruminants

  • Calf transition from milk drinking to solid starter nutrition has two important economic components: 1) the cost of milk, and 2) the maturation of the calf intestine. The sooner the calf can start eating solid nutrition, the lower the cost of feeding, and the sooner it can be bred.

OUR PRODUCTS

THE BENEFICIAL EFFECT OF TruGro® SW ON STIMULATING FEED INTAKE

TruGro® SW natural, plant-based sweetener feed additive improves palatability to entice calves to eat starter sooner and in higher amounts.

Main challenges
for Aquaculture:

  • Oxidation is a naturally occurring, irreversible process in which lipids in animal feed degrade over time when exposed to air. As feed degrades, it loses nutritional value and becomes rancid, affecting palatability and feed intake, which can lead to a damaging impact on animal health, immunity, nutrition and growth.
  • Farmed fish and crustaceans experience elevated intracellular levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) that cause damage to lipids, proteins and DNA.
  • Energy spent to counteract oxidative stress leaves less energy for growth. Botanicals can help.

THE BENEFICIAL EFFECT OF TruGro® AOX ON EXTENDING SHELF LIFE

TruGro® AOX extends shelf life of aquaculture feed, providing critical antioxidant protection for a variety of commonly used fats & oils across substrates.

THE BENEFICIAL EFFECT OF TruGro® MAX ON BODY WEIGHT IMPROVEMENT

TruGro® MAX promotes growth by reducing the energy and protein expense required to counteract the effect of ROS in the system.  It allows a higher flow of nutrients for meat deposition that results in higher body weight.
