Best Practices

The RoteccSM Coccidiosis Management approach involves working closely with Zoetis to create a customized coccidiosis management rotation program. Every program is backed by sound science and helps improve flock health, increase profitability and secure the long-term viability of all coccidiosis management products. The Rotecc approach is rooted in the four well-researched principles below.1

Rotating anticoccidials has become common practice within broiler production. According to a 2014 survey commissioned by Zoetis in Canada and Latin America, 84% of the 75 interview participants — representing nearly half of the broiler production in those markets — indicated they’ve used two or more anticoccidial programs in the past 12 months. Further, 77% strongly agreed that products should not be used for too long, 69% strongly agreed that resting products restores efficacy and 63% valued the annual use of a synthetic anticoccidial. And even with high satisfaction among producers in their coccidiosis management programs, 86% of respondents believe a new approach for managing this costly disease is needed.2
