Sažetak
In the experiment the effect of the commercial product, the feed additive, natural zeolite with 55% clinoptilolite content, on the health and productivity results of nursery pigs was assessed. Feed additive was added to the feed mix of the experimental group, in the amount of 2% by weight. Microclimate conditions, which among others include the concentration of noxious gasses in animal facilities, have a large influence on the health and productivity of pigs. The effect of feed additive resulted in a decreased air ammonia concentration by 34%, which could be attributed to the effect of clinoptilolite. The feed additive did reduce the concentration of nitrogen compounds in the slurry. In particular, the concentration of ammonium ions in it was reduced by 27%. It could be concluded that in this study the additive did not completely achieve the expected results. Namely, the air ammonia concentration in nurseries in relation to fattening units is generally relatively lower, thus recorded reduction of ammonia concentration is not that significant for the health of piglets, and ultimately for their production properties.
