Abstract Salinomycin a broad spectrum ionophore anticoccidial, was evaluated for toleration and efficacy at 60 ppm in the feed of broiler reared to market weight under floor pen conditions. Approximately 13,500 broilers of three different breeds were used in 5 trials, two conducted in Maine and one each in Georgia, North Carolina, and Texas. The related ionophore anticoccidials, monensin and lasalocid, were included for comparison at 100 and 75 ppm respectively. Coccidial exposure was provided… Expand

Evaluation of the efficacy of salinomycin in the control of coccidiosis in chicks.
The weight gain of birds given salinomycin at 80 ppm was depressed significantly (P less than .01) at 56 days as a result of decreased feed consumption, and statistical analysis of main effects on weight gain, feed conversion ratio, hematocrit value, and serum optical density showed no significant differences between sal inomycin, monensin, or halofuginone.

Anticoccidial efficacy of salinomycin (AHR-3096C) and compatibility with roxarsone in floor-pen experiments with broilers.
Lesion scores, body weight, and feed conversion data of the 4th and 5th trials suggested that the anticoccidial activity of salinomycin and roxarsone are additive and that this shuttle program could be used satisfactorily for control of coccidiosis. Expand
Simultaneous treatment of chickens with salinomycin and tiamulin in feed.
In the two field trials, chickens suffering from mycoplasmosis complicated with infectious bronchitis and receiving 60 ppm salinomycin in the feed showed marked improvements in mortality rates, lesion scores, and feed-conversion efficiency when tiamulin was added at 20 ppm and 30 ppm in theFeed.

Efficacy of semduramicin and salinomycin against different stages of Eimeria tenella and E. acervulina in the chicken.
The efficacy of a new ionophore, semduramicin, was compared with salinomycin in a series of in ovo and in vivo trials. Semduramicin was more efficacious than salinomycin against Eimeria tenellaExpand
Influence of monensin and salinomycin on the performance of broiler chicks.
This research points out the necessity of the accurate use of the coccidiostat in the management of broiler chicks when these compounds were added to the diet. Expand
Effect of Anticoccidial Programs on Broiler Performance
Abstract Two floor pen trials were conducted to study the effects of 16 anticoccidial programs on broiler performance during a mild coccidial challenge. Twelve shuttle programs were arranged withExpand
Influence of salinomycin on incidence, shedding, and antimicrobial resistance of Salmonella typhimurium in experimentally infected broiler chicks.
The antibiotic salinomycin appears to be an acceptable feed additive in broilers at the level of 80 g/T based on these results of its effects on salmonellae shedding and antimicrobial resistance. Expand
The response of broiler chickens to the addition of bacitracin methylene disalicylate to diets containing salinomycin and roxarsone.
Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the response of broiler chickens to addition of bacitracin methylene disalicylate (BMD) to diets containing salinomycin and found that feed utilization was not improved in all locations by the addition of BMD. Expand
Einfluß von Salinomycin auf Scheinbare Verdaulichkeit, Kennzahlen der Pansenfermentation Sowie Mast- und Schlachtergebnisse von Mastrindern
The influence of salinomycin (0, 15, 30 and 60 mg per animal and day) on apparent digestibility of artificially dried grass was investigated in four experiments with five wether each. Three long termExpand
Studies of resistance to anticoccidials in Eimeria field isolates and pure Eimeria strains.
Ten Eimeria field isolates from North Germany were studied in battery tests for sensitivity to selected anticoccidials, and 10 of 11 resistant strains were multiply resistant. Expand


European field evaluation of monensin, a new anticoccidial agent.
Analysis of data from all trials showed that in comparison to untreated controls the inclusion of 0.012% monensin in the feed gave statistically significant improvements in final body weight, feed conversion efficiency and control of coccidial lesions. Expand
Anticoccidial activity of salinomycin in floor-pen experiments with broilers.
Salinomycin at all treatment levels showed definite anticoccidial activity resulting in improved weights, feed conversion ratios, lesion scores, and mortality compared with unmedicated controls, and in pens with severe coccidiosis, this compound demonstrated a significant improvement in all parameters when compared with the corresponding unmedication controls.

Anticoccidial activity of salinomycin in battery raised broiler chickens.
Evaluated the anticoccidial efficacy of various levels of salinomycin (AHR-3096), a fermentation product of a strain of Streptomyces albus, and the effect on bird performance in uninfected control birds and found it to be statistically as effective as 121 p.p.m. monensin (reference anticoccIDial) in controlling coccidiosis.

Safety evaluation of salinomycin in broiler chickens reared in floor pens.
Salinomycin (Coxistac), a new broad spectrum anticoccidial, was tested in broilers reared in floor pens for safety at 50, 60, 80, 100, and 160 ppm fed continuously from 1 to 56 days of age. FourExpand
Anticoccidial drugs: lesion scoring techniques in battery and floor-pen experiments with chickens.
Eimeria maxima and E. brunetti were found to be the most difficult species to score since the gross pathologic picture has been difficult to correlate with weight gains or other indications of pathogenicity. Expand
