SENS Nutrition specialises in nutritional feed additives that help to protect the gut, maintain a balanced microflora and support the immune system.

A healthy functioning digestive system is essential to protect against bacterial or viral infections and ensure the efficient utilisation of nutrients.

Product Portfolio

For pigs, poultry and ruminants, we have a portfolio of additives and nutritional solutions to be applied via feed or used direct on-farm.


  • Help develop and maintain a healthy functioning gut in both sows and piglets
  • Suppress pathogenic bacterial and viral challenges
  • Support the immune system and the pig’s ability to resist disease

    The benefits of zinc oxide and copper supplementation are well known for their effect on growth performance and reducing E.coli.

    HiZox® is a novel form of zinc oxide and CoRouge® is the only monovalent source of copper available on the market. They represent the best zinc and copper sources for digestive security and growth performance.  More info: New challenges for the pig industy

    Butyric acid is an important feed additive for gut development. It has numerous functions in the maintenance of a healthy digestive system.

    FRA® butyric acid glycerides are efficacious and easy to handle via feed and drinking water. As glycerides they are not broken down in the stomach meaning that they are active throughout the length of the gastrointestinal tract.

  • Pig

    The Medium Chain Fatty Acids caprylic, capric, lauric and myristic acid have a variety of anti-inflammatory benefits and antimicrobial effects against a range of gram +ve and gram -ve pathogens.

    FRA® monoglycerides of MCFAs have greater antimicrobial activity than the free acid. FRA C12 dry has been demonstrated to be particularly beneficial in herds where Streptococcal meningitis is an issue. Read more...

    Prebiotics are a source of nutrients for gut microbes which help to develop and maintain a healthy intestinal microflora.

    OptiCell® is a concentrated source of lignocellulose providing dietary fibre as well as a source of energy for the proliferation of butyric acid producing bacteria.
    AO-Ferm® is a precision prebiotic which stimulates bacterial growth in the hind gut and increases the capacity of the pig to digest fibre.

  • Pig

    Phytogens are plant extracts that have biological properties within the animal, such as antimicrobial, antioxidant or anti-inflammatory effects.

    Agromed® PROTECT is a combination of wood lignans and phenolic acids and should be used in situations where digestive health is challenged and may lead to scouring.
    Agromed® ROI contains activated wood lignans  which encourages the development of a healthier gut flora and improves feed conversion efficiency.


  • Aid the development and functioning of the bird’s gastrointestinal tract
  • Suppress the proliferation of pathogenic bacteria
  • Support the immune system and the bird’s homeostatic balance
  • Red Rooster

    The trace minerals zinc (Zn), manganese (Mn), and copper (Cu) are essential to maintain health and productivity for all poultry.

    HiZox®, ManGrin® and CoRouge® all have a minimum metal ion concentration of 75%. All are oxides with a high level of stability and bioavailability. All are free flowing and mix evenly in the feed or premix.

  • Red Rooster

    As well as being necessary for gut development and health, butyric acid can influence the balance of the gut microflora. FRA monobutyrin and tributyrin are butyric acid glycerides.

    Products containing FRA® butyrin reduces the colonization and shedding of Salmonella in poultry. In layers and breeders FRA® butyrin improves egg shell strength.

  • Red Rooster

    Medium Chain Fatty Acids reduce the colonisation of enteric bacteria such as Campylobacter spp., Clostridium spp., Salmonella spp. and Escherichia coli.

    FRA Cap dry (monocaprin / monocaprylin) and FRA C12 (monolaurin) suppress a wide range of gram +ve and gram -ve pathogens. These molecules also have anti-inflammatory and immunological properties as well as being able to disrupt fat enveloped viruses.

  • Red Rooster

    A prebiotic is a feed component that escapes digestion in the small intestine and enters the lower gut, where it may serve as a growth substrate for intestinal bacteria.

    OptiCell® is a source of insoluble lignocellulose fibre which encourages the growth of butyric acid lon to produce butyric acid.

  • Red Rooster

    Phytogens are plant extracts that have biological properties within the animal, such as antimicrobial, antioxidant or anti-inflammatory effects.

    Agromed® PROTECT and agromed® ROI are  phytogenes based on activated lignans and phenolic acids. ROI encourages the development of a healthier gut flora and improves feed efficiency. PROTECT should be used in situations where digestive health is more comprimised by bacterial challenges. OILIS is a proven alternative to chemical coccisiostats and ionophores.


  • Increase DM intake and stimulate the growth of beneficial microflora. 
  • Optimise rumen function, gut health and nutrient absorption.
  • Reduce the shedding of oocysts that lead to coccidiosis and cryptosporidiosis. 
  • The trace minerals Cu, Zn and Mn are all necessary for the biochemical processes that support dairy cattle productive performance, health status and fertility.

    HiZox®, ManGrin® and CoRouge® are insoluble at neutral pH meaning they do not negatively effect the rumen bacteria. The zinc, manganese and copper is released in the intestines in a bioavailable form to the animal. More info : Animine precision minerals - High Stability in the Rumen

  • The fermentation of Aspergillus oryzae produces a rich source of nutrients that increase the growth of fungi plus starch and fibre digesting bacteria in the rumen.

    Amaferm® and AO-Ferm® are precision prebiotics that amplify the rumen’s fermentation capacity by increasing the growth of fungi and bacteria. This results in a better digestion of fibre and an increase in production of microbial protein for more economic milk production. More info: Amaferm® - the rumen-boosting prebiotic for dairy cows

  • Selected plant extracts have anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties as well as antimicrobial activities making them safe and effective alternatives to chemical coccidiostats.

    OILIS is proven to be effective at preventing coccidiosis and cryptosporidiosis in calves, lambs and goat kids, reducing the reliance on chemical coccidiostat. OILIS also improves gut health and integrity resulting in healthier and better growing animals.

Farm Solutions

SENS Nutrition products are added via premixes or compound feed but can equally be incorporated on-farm via mill and mix. However, the following products are particularly suitable for on-farm use.

Amaferm® Farmpack

Amaferm® amplifies the rumen's fermentation capacity by increasing the growth of fungi and bacteria. This results in better digestion of fibre and an increase in the production of microbial protein for more economic milk production. The Farmpack has a feeding rate of 30-50 g/day

SENSacid Premium

SENSacid Premium liquid is suitable for pigs and poultry should be applied via the drinking water. It contains lactic and formic acid to reduce the bacterial challenge and butyric acid to improve gut health. The product is also available in a dry form for incorporating into feed.


OptiCell is a concentrated source of dietary fibre. Layers, piglets and sows all benefit from the addition of fibre in order to maintain a healthy functioning digestive tract. OptiCell is a safe and effective way of adding fibre to a diet.

PICKME Pecking Stones

PICKME stones are a clean and safe way of enabling the pullet or hen to express natural pecking behaviour. PICKME stones are compressed mineral blocks and are gently abrasive, so have a blunting effect on the beak.

Our Partners

Our Company

SENS Nutrition was founded in 2010 but our lineage can be traced back to the early 1800s when John Ladbrook bought the corn mill in Elmsett, Suffolk. Over the generations, W. Ladbrook & Son developed into an animal feed business with a reputation for innovation and integrity.

Today SENS Nutrition, led by Steve Ladbrook, supplies innovative nutritional products and services to the whole of the UK and Ireland. We supply either directly to the farm or via our feed manufacturing and premix customers. 

Our strength lies in our independence, flexibility and freedom to offer a variety of products to meet different needs. We have grown our business by listening to our customers and providing a high-quality service.
