Copper hydroxychloride as a beneficial tool for broiler production

By Dr Kurt Perryman, technical sales manager, Micronutrients International

As consumers demand a transition away from the use of sub-therapeutic antibiotics in broiler production, companies need to explore antibiotic alternatives for the maintenance of broiler health and performance. Where permitted, supplementing copper above the nutritional requirement of the bird, has been demonstrated to improve broiler performance (Miles, 1998). When fed at nutritional levels (~10mg/kg), copper has both structural and catalytic functions in multiple enzyme systems integral to energy metabolism, tissue growth, red blood cell formation, oxidative defence and immunocompetence (Arias and Koutsos, 2006).
