The professional and sharp media Q & A session on the site
The abuse of antibiotics is causing unpredictable huge disasters to human, including antibiotic residues in food, environmental pollution, drug resistance and superbugs. For animal husbandry, the abuse of antibiotics leads to the decline of animal immunity, the destruction of intestinal microbial system and the increase of death. As consumers, the industry and national management level pay more and more attention to food safety issues, and the countries all over the world have issued increasingly strict policies regarding the ban of antibiotic products one after another.
In January 2006, the European Union started to ban antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) in feed; in 2013, the United States planned to ban the use of prophylactic antibiotics in livestock feed for three years from 2014 on; on March 13, 2019, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Areas of China issued No. 194 Announcement, requiring the withdrawal of all growth-promoting drug feed additive varieties except traditional Chinese medicine from January 1, 2020 on, and the stop of the production of commercial feeds containing growth-promoting drug feed additives (except traditional Chinese medicine) from July 1 on. The report of the 19th National Congress of the CPC explicitly proposed “promoting green development” and “implementing the food safety strategy so that the people can eat safely", which pointed out the direction for the development of China’s modern breeding and animal husbandry -- Green and antibiotic resistant breeding had become the inevitable trend of the industry development.

In recent years, VTR has also suddenly raised as a new force in antibiotic-free products of the medicinal plant section! In 2018, through capital market operation, VTR acquired 51% equity of Changsha World-Way Biotech Inc., thus VTR officially entered the medicinal plant field, starting the cooperation of research and development platforms in the two fields, and implementing the application research on the synergistic substitution of biological enzymes and medicinal plants for antibiotic products.
World-Way Biotech Inc. is a large leading specialized enterprise dedicated to the research and development, production and operation of standardized medicinal plant extracts and plant-derived functional terminal products. In the past 30 years, World-Way Biotech Inc. has formed a complete industrial chain including the research on natural plants, germplasm selection and cultivation of traditional Chinese medicine resources, planting technology, primary processing, extraction process, product-listing and consumer terminal. The company has undertaken the national biological base common platform project Hunan Provincial Traditional Chinese Medicine Extraction Engineering Research Center”; in 2014, approved by the National Development and Reform Commission, the company and Hunan Agricultural University, Hunan Provincial Traditional Chinese Medicine Extraction Engineering Research Center Co., Ltd. jointly established the “National and Local Joint Engineering Center for the Creation and Establishment of Veterinary Traditional Chinese Medicine Resources and Chinese Veterinary Medicine”.
Antibiotic-free era, double solutions take the lead
With concurrent development and synergism of the research and development platforms in the fields of biological enzyme preparation and medicinal plants, it leads the new era of antibiotic-freefuture. VTR formally introduced the antibiotic-free breeding star product combination- Macleaya cordata+ glucose oxidase. With Macleaya cordata + glucose oxidase + combined protease + lysozyme + quenching enzyme as the backbones, it gives full play to the synergistic use effect of two kinds of antibiotic substitution products including biological enzyme preparation and medicinal plants, improves intestinal health, reduces and eliminates toxic and harmful substances, improves the body’s anti-stress ability to achieves the effect of antibiotics; besides, it aims to finally improve the production performance of farmed animals and reduce the cost of breeding, and become the preferred product combination and systematic solution in the era of antibiotic resistance breeding!
Sangrovit (Macleaya cordata) is China’s first Category-Ⅱ Chinese veterinary medicine preparation, the first natural plant-derived drug feed additive, and has been approved as the first Chinese veterinary drug feed additive, with 100% pure plant extract, without the withdrawal period, it can be added for use for a long time.
