MaxiChick® More and Better Chicks

MaxiChick: What is it and What it does for the Breeders? • On Average, 34 eggs/per hen/cycle are not producing a chicken (value of $ or € 8.50 per hen per cycle) • MaxiChick® is the patented combination of two scientifically proven DSM products (Hy•D® and Carophyll® Red) that complement each other to boost the productivity of the breeder flock • Two more first quality chicks per housed hen have been produced in both University and field studies when using MaxiChick®

MaxiChick™ MaxiChick™: what it is and what it does for the breeders? ROVIMIX® MaxiChick™ is the patented combination of two scientifically proven DSM products (Hy•D® and Carophyll® Red) that complement each other to boost the productivity of the breeder flock. Two or more first quality chicks per housed hen have been produced in University and field Studies when using ROVIMIX® MaxiChick® female chicks only Hamelin & Galea, 2013 female chicks only Alonso, 2011 Sarabia, 2010 ducklings Hamelin & Rochard, 2013 ducklings Hamelin & Rochard, 2013 Santos, 2011 Carranza, 2009 Hamelin, 2011 turkeys Rosa, 2010 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

MaxiChick™: Breeders performance - Elevator pitch ® What is MaxiChick ? MaxiChick® is the patented combination of two scientifically proven DSM products (Hy•D® and Carophyll® red) that complement each other to boost the productivity of the breeder flock. By feeding Hy•D® (25-OH-D3) the liver metabolism of vitamin D3 is by-passed. Birds always have optimized level of circulating 25-OH-D3. By feeding Carophyll® red (canthaxanthin), the bird will have the carotenoid with the highest deposition rate, playing an important antioxidant roll in both males and females.

MaxiChick® Practically all Lipids are Located in the Egg Yolk (Surai, 2012) Carotenoids such as Canthaxanthin, are deposited directly in the yolk, to act as an antioxidant, altogether with Vitamin E Antioxidant systems in the egg Shell Shell Membrane Glutathion Peroxidase Catalase Chalaza Superoxide dismutase Vitelline (Yolk) Membrane Germinal Disc or Blastodisc Yolk Thin Albumin Thick Albumin Air Cell Adapted from Surai, 2012 Vitamin E Canthaxanthin Other antioxidant systems - Superoxide dismutase, Glutathion Peroxidase and Catalase - are located in small quantities in the egg white

MaxiChick® Canthaxanthin is Transferred from the Yolk to the Embryo, as a Protective Adaptation against the Stress of Hatching You can see and feel the difference!!! The yolk membrane is stronger when using MaxiChick™

MaxiChick® ® Why MaxiChick ? One goal • More and better chicks Four benefits One Product (many reasons) • Better fertility • More hatching eggs • More and better semen • Lower hen mortality • Increased rooster longevity • Higher laying rate • Immunomodulation in the chick • Better shell quality • Increased antioxidant capacity of the egg • Higher Ca transfer from shell to embryo • Higher hatchability • Better chicks • Immunomodulation in the chick

MaxiChick® Recommendations and Concept What is it? How to use it? Mode of action Hy-D® at 69 ppb and Canthaxanthin at6 ppm (it can change according to market regulations) From week 25 to 65 of life for broiler breeders (40 weeks of production) full dose, adjusting for D3 equivalency for males and females. Turkey, and layers • Antioxidant • Immunomodulation • Ca and P homeostasis Benefits • Better fertility • More hatching eggs • Increased hatchability • Better chicks Reasons • Males: testosterone, semen quality • Female: laying rate, incubability, h atchability, livabilit y • Chicks: immunity, TAC, HyD® plasma levels, livability (first week)

Return on Investment • Using the MaxiChick calculator with the following assumptions: -Ross 308 performing at standard -Improvement of +1 settable eggs -Improvement of +1% fertility -Improvement of +1% hatchability • That means 4.1 and 100 chicks more per housed hen and per MT of feed respectively • At 0.30 € per chick and 6€/Mt inclusion rate, that means an ROI of 5 to 1

Return on Investment- Layers • Using the MaxiChick calculator with the following assumptions: -Hy Line performing at standard -Improvement of +1 settable eggs -Improvement of +1% fertility -Improvement of 2% hatchability • That means 3.65 and 110 chicks more per housed hen and per MT of feed respectively • At 0.30 € per chick and 6 €/MT inclusion cost, that means an ROI of 5.5 to 1
