Safety and efficacy of Monteban® G100 (narasin) for chickens for fattening

Safety and efficacy of Monteban® G100 (narasin) for chickens for fattening

Published on: Tue, 20 Nov 2018 The feed additive Monteban® G100, containing the active substance narasin, an ionophore anticoccidial, is intended to control coccidiosis in chickens for fattening at a dose of 60–70 mg/kg complete feed. Narasin is produced by fermentation. Limited data on the taxonomic identification of the production strain did not allow the proper identification of strain NRRL 8092 as Streptomyces aureofaciens. The FEEDAP Panel cannot conclude on the absence of genetic determinants for ...
