Anticoccidial Coxidin® 200 gains EU approval

The anticoccidial Coxidin® 200 microGranulate has gained EU approval for use in broilers and turkeys.

Coxidin® 200, produced by Biovet (a subsidairy of Huvepharma) is added to the diet to prevent chickens and turkeys from being infected with Eimeria. It contains 200 gram monensin sodium per kg and is available as homogenous premixture.

Granulated formulation
The new, granulated formulation has a major advantage over other formulations that still use the outdated and inefficient technique of simple mixing, which may result in variable concentrations of active particles in the feed. The new granulated formulation in Coxidin enables the correct dosage of the active ingredient to be mixed in the animal feed and applied to the bird, regardless of the age or weight. The granulation technique also helps to prevent granules from segregating during production, transportation and storage.
