Nuscience Group, a member of the Royal Agrifirm Group, is launching Q-prove, a brand new product to cope with the woody breast syndrome in broiler chickens.

 

Although it’s not a threat to human health, woody breast results in significant financial losses for poultry farmers, integrators and slaughterhouses. With Q-prove, Nuscience is now able to deal with this problem and reduce the percentage of affected birds substantially. It is the first and unique solution for woody breast syndrome in the animal feed industry, the company said.

 

Woody breast syndrome is a serious problem for poultry husbandry. It can affect broiler chickens, making the meat hard and chewy and rendering the animals unmarketable. The main cause of woody breast is thought to be the high growth rate and high breast meat yield.

 

After conducting major field trials in Europe and South America, Nuscience developed an effective solution for this problem: Q-prove. The product can lower the incidence of woody breast by reducing oxidative stress and supplying more oxygen to the cells. With Q-prove, the muscle cells are able to grow very fast without any meat loss...

DRONGEN, Belgium – A production issue that had many broiler producers and poultry processors flummoxed in the past two years as a growing proportion of breast meat was lost to what became known as “woody breast.”

 

Researchers from the Royal Agrifirm Group’s Nuscience Group announced the launch of a feed-based solution to reduce the incidents of what it calls “wooden breast syndrome,” which is not a food safety threat, but has resulted in financial losses in the global poultry market.

 

Nuscience researchers narrowed down the cause of the myopathy to the increasingly high growth rates of birds and high meat yields. The company’s product, Q-prove, is recommended for use in high doses during early feeding of broilers and reducing its use as the birds grow.
