Abstract

Purpose. The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of using IgY immunoglobulins contained in the feed additive “Globigen Life Start” for 75 days of rearing calves. Methods. In the process of the research general scientific methods were used: deduction, scientific hypothesis and abstraction. The method of groups-analogues for conducting researches on animals was used as well. Methods of variation statistics were applied for processing the obtained experimental results. Results. “Globigen Life Start” is a yellowish powder that contains egg immunoglobulins IgY and dextrose. This supplement contains specific IgY immunoglobulins, the action of which is aimed at prevention and neutralization of the following pathogens: Coronavirus, Rotavirus, Cryptosporidium, E. coli, S. typhimurium & dublin, Clostridia types A & C. The preparation is recommended to be given with colostrum, milk or in prestart feed. “Globigen Life Start” is thermostable and can withstand heating temperatures up to 80°C, which allows it to be used in granular feed. Regular use of the drug allows to get a healthy herd with normal technological growth, to minimize the addition of antibiotics and to reduce possible weight loss due to diarrhea. This feed supplement can be used from birth to 12 weeks of age. Conclusions. When studying the effect of using the feed additive “Globigen Life Start”, which contains specific immunoglobulins IgY for the prevention and treatment of bacterial infection in calves, it was found that its feeding in the amount of 10 g per head once a day during one of the drinks helps to reduce morbidity of calves from diarrhea by 22.7%.
