Microbes, fungi, bacteria and protozoa can have an important impact on poultry farming and production. They can cause diseases which threaten animal welfare, leading to increased veterinary costs and reduced profitability.

Quality control of feed and water is central to maintaining high quality production. For example, if a feed silo is not cleaned properly, material decay and harmful microorganisms develop. Proper management of water resources is also extremely important as water can be a vector for bacteria. To avoid any form of contamination, maintaining water cleanliness is a top priority for any poultry farmer.

Fortunately, cleaner poultry farming facilities, which ultimately benefit human health, can be achieved thanks to the effective use of microbial control technologies.
