Nanoparticles zinc as an alternative to antibiotics in pigs

Project no. QK1720349
Category PROJEKTY NAZV / National Agency for Agricultural Research PROJECTS
ProviderMZE ČR
Description

The aim of the project is to develop new forms of zinc using modern nanotechnologies to reduce the use of antibiotics in pigs and improve health status with regard to performance. In the first phase, the method of zinc complex modification will be optimized. In the second phase, zinc nanoparticles will be tested from the point of view of usability in laboratory rats. Nanoparticles will be compared to conventional zinc sources. In the third phase of the project, zinc in the form of nanoparticles will be added to the diet of piglets. The results will be compared with the commercial zinc sources. The microbiological parameters of faeces and utility indicators will be monitored until the slaughter of animals in individual categories. The doses of zinc nanoparticles in pig diet will be optimized. The practical output of the project will be new nano, microparticles and zinc complexes, certified methodology, semi-operation and impacted publications.
