The wonderful use of astragalus polysaccharides in chickens

Can astragalus polysaccharides be fed to laying hens?
The biggest advantage of feeding laying hens with astragalus polysaccharides is that eggs have no drug residues, no teratogenic, no carcinogens, and are food-safe eggs. The application effect of natural green antibiotic plant extract astragalus polysaccharides in the practice of raising chickens is very ideal, especially suitable for brooding
The source of Astragalus polysaccharide extraction was the dried roots of Astragalus membranaceus, a leguminous plant pod. Brownish-yellow powder, slightly sweeter in taste, hygroscopic.


Astragalus Polysaccharide


1. Benefits of astragalus polysaccharides

Astragalus polysaccharide is a dried powder extracted from the dried rhizomes of Astragalus membranaceus. The extraction source was dried roots of Astragalus membranaceus membranaceus; Brownish-yellow powder, slightly sweeter in taste, hygroscopic; The content is oral ≥65%, injection ≥ 70%, widely used in veterinary drug raw materials, injection, oral liquid, drinking water, mixing, feed addition, etc., health care, antiviral medicine.
Astragalus contains polysaccharides, proteins, alkaloids, amino acids, flavonoids, glycosides, trace elements and other bioactive substances, among which the immune activity of Astragalus polysaccharide is particularly prominent, Astragalus polysaccharide is arabinose and glucose polysaccharides are the most abundant in Astragalus, immune or strong class of substances, with enhanced immune and antiviral effects.
It can be used to enhance immune function, induce the body to produce interferon, protect the cardiovascular system, promote and regulate immune function, replenish qi and strengthen the surface, detoxify and drain pus, amass sores and muscle, antiviral, etc.

Second, the use in chicken breeding

Astragalus polysaccharides can be mixed and fed, especially for chicks, without injection, saving effort and money. For adult chickens or laying hens, it is generally very convenient to feed astragalus polysaccharides directly with mixture.
1. Chicks fed with astragalus polysaccharides can improve the survival rate.
Newly hatched Hailan brown-shell laying hens, while injecting Marek vaccine, the use of astragalus polysaccharide feeding, can promote early feeding of chicks, yolk absorption, early egg pedicle dry knot shedding, high survival rate.
2. Breeding chickens can be antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and improve immunity.
The chickens who have drunk the astragalus polysaccharide have normal feces, no symptoms of diarrhea, and are not infected with E. coli, indicating that the astragalus polysaccharide solution can play an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial role, not only increase appetite, but also improve immunity and reduce the cost of feeding.
3. The benefit of feeding astragalus polysaccharides to the starting hens is that it is beneficial to the gas and solid surface.
For the hens with high yield and more eggs, it has the effect of changing the hen's sagging, long-term diarrhea and blood in the stool, and prolapse, and feeding a course of astragalus polysaccharides on a regular basis every month can avoid the appearance of chickens that are pecked to death due to anal prolapse, such as feeding with Codonopsis, cimicifuga, Bupleurum, etc., and will also improve the egg production rate and prolong the egg-laying high bee period.
4. Enhance the body's immunity, improve the quality and yield of chicken and eggs.
Astragalus polysaccharides have the function of improving the utilization of nutrients and promoting animal growth, and Astragalus polysaccharides contain amino acids, vitamins, trace elements and other nutrients; Contains unknown growth factor (UGF). As a feed additive, it can significantly improve the growth rate of chickens, improve the body's resistance, and improve the quality and yield of meat and eggs.
5. Feeding chickens with astragalus powder has many benefits for egg production.
The eggshell is hard and not easy to break, the egg yolk is dark in color, there is no teratogenicity, no drug residue, and it is a good assistant for the simple production of green products at present. Astragalus polysaccharides were effective in preventing and controlling Newcastle disease in chickens, and improving the immune effect of Newcastle disease and H9 subtype avian influenza vaccine.
6. Astragalus polysaccharides have obvious effects on the prevention and control of Newcastle disease in chickens, the improvement of Newcastle disease and H9 subtype avian influenza vaccine.
The chicken diseases that chicken farmers are more afraid of are Newcastle disease and avian influenza. So does astragalus polysaccharides have any effect on these two chicken diseases? Some experts have done experiments on the effective prevention and control of Newcastle disease in chickens and the improvement of the immune effect of Newcastle disease and H9 subtype avian influenza vaccine, and the results show that adding 0.05% sorrel polysaccharide to the diet of meat boys can significantly increase the Newcastle disease antibody titer and H9 subtype avian influenza antibody titer after immunization with chicken Newcastle disease and H9 subtype avian influenza virus dual inactivated vaccine, indicating that Astragalus polysaccharides can significantly improve the immune effect of chicken Newcastle disease and H9 subtype avian influenza vaccine.
This is of great practical significance for improving the immunization effect of poultry vaccines and reducing the economic losses caused by vaccine immunization failure.
7. The function of Astragalus polysaccharides for chicken diseases is indicated:
Indications: infectious bursitis in chickens, Newcastle disease in chickens, infectious bronchitis, duck viral hepatitis, serositis, high fever, lack of energy, loss of appetite, vomiting, shortness of breath and other symptoms caused by chicken virus.
Astragalus polysaccharide is an interferon inducer, its anti-viral principle: stimulate the function of macrophages and T cells, increase the number of E-ring forming cells, induce cytokines, promote interleukin induction, and make the animal body produce endogenous interferon, so as to achieve the purpose of antiviral, for the treatment of chicken infectious bursal disease, influenza virus infection and other diseases.
Astragalus polysaccharides can prevent colds and reduce the incidence by more than 50%, and the combined application of astragalus and interferon can reduce the incidence by more than 70%.

Second, the prevention and control of pig diseases and the wonderful use of astragalus polysaccharides as feed additives

Astragalus polysaccharide is actually the main active ingredient of Astragalus, which can be used as an immune promoter or regulator, with antiviral, antitumor, antioxidant, anti-radiation and anti-stress, enhance immunity, promote immunity, promote antibody synthesis, regulate blood sugar in both directions and protect the cardiovascular system.
Now, Astragalus polysaccharides are used as immune enhancers and antiviral drugs in pig production, which effectively improves the disease resistance and production performance of pig herds, and lays a good foundation for the sustainable development of the pig industry. Today, our pig easy to practice veterinarians will make a detailed introduction to the prevention and control of pig diseases with astragalus polysaccharides and their use as feed additives.


The wonderful use of astragalus polysaccharides in the prevention and control of swine diseases

1. Prevention and control of bacterial diseases in pigs
The results showed that the curative effect was obvious, and the cure rate reached 93.7%. The cure rate of this method was 12.2% higher than that of intramuscular enrofloxacin in piglets alone or astragalus polysaccharide in sows alone.
In the prevention and treatment of bacterial diseases in pigs, Astragalus polysaccharides can not only promote the immune function of the immune system of suckling piglets and weaned piglets, enhance the disease resistance of pigs, reduce the incidence of diarrheal diseases in suckling piglets (red, yellow, and white dysentery) and weaned piglets, improve the survival rate, promote growth and development, improve the rate of weight gain, and reduce the cost of feeding.
2. Prevention and control of porcine viral diseases
Pig masters use intramuscular injection of Astragalus polysaccharide + compound sulfamethoxine sodium (intramuscular injection of Astragalus polysaccharide injection, 0.2 ml/kg body weight, 1 time/day, for 7 consecutive days; Intramuscular injection of compound sulfamethoxine sodium injection, 0.2 ml/kg body weight, 2 days/time, 3 times in a row) in the treatment of porcine circovirus disease in the early stage of the disease, and achieved good efficacy. Astragalus polysaccharide is an interferon inducer, so Astragalus polysaccharide is more effective when used in combination with interferon in the treatment of viral diseases.
In addition, Astragalus polysaccharides themselves have the effect of clearing heat and detoxifying, strengthening the body and dispelling evil, activating the immune function of the body's organs, promoting the production of antibodies, and improving the body's resistance.
3. Improve the immune function of weaned piglets
In terms of pig herd stress, the stress caused by weaning piglets is more severe, often accompanied by digestive disorders, low immune function, severe diarrhea, growth stagnation, and even death, causing huge economic losses to pig production.
Due to weaning stress, the immune function of piglets decreases, resulting in reduced resistance to external pathogens, which is easy to cause severe diarrhea. The addition of astragalus polysaccharides can significantly improve the immune function of weaned piglets. Enhanced immune function of weaned piglets and reduced diarrhea rate in piglets.


The wonderful use of astragalus polysaccharides as feed additives in pig farming

The use of antibiotics as feed additives in the pig industry has played an important role in enhancing the disease resistance of pigs, preventing and treating diseases, and promoting the growth of pigs, but in the process of use, there are various drawbacks such as drug residues, drug resistance and reducing the quality of animal products, which makes Chinese herbal medicine additives gradually show their advantages.
As a pig feed additive, Astragalus polysaccharides can improve the survival rate and weaning weight of weaned piglets, inhibit intestinal harmful flora, reduce the incidence of diarrhea in piglets, enhance piglet immunity and improve production performance.
Pig masters reported that adding 600-800 mg/kg of Chinese herbal medicine additives with astragalus as the main drug in pig feed can increase the weight gain of pigs by 20%-30% and increase feed utilization rate by 15%; Adding 2.5% to the sow diet increased the sow's lactation by 22.7% and the weaning weight of piglets at 35 days of age by 19.7%. It plays an important role in improving the appetite of pigs, enhancing disease resistance and improving production performance.
Generally speaking, Astragalus polysaccharides, as natural, medicinal and nutritional active Chinese medicine ingredients, can significantly promote the body's non-specific and specific immunity, improve the body's disease resistance and resistance, as an immune adjuvant can be used in combination with vaccines can significantly improve the protection rate of vaccines and the body's resistance, but also antiviral and antioxidant, disease prevention and treatment, and other biological effects, but also has the advantages of safety, non-toxic side effects, wide resources, etc.
