An Ontario company is getting funding to help develop a new line of antimicrobial feed additives to help control disease outbreaks in poultry flocks.
The additives being developed by Mississauga-based Ab-Celex are described as being both non-antibiotic and non-hormonal.
They're specifically aimed at two of the most common food-borne bacteria that infect poultry -- campylobacter and Salmonella.
The 3-point-4 million dollars investment is coming from the Agri-Innovation Program under the federal-provincial Growing Forward 2 platform.


About 150 antique threshing machines in Manitoba have set a world record for the most threshers operating at once.
The Manitoba Agricultural Museum joined with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank to set the record on Sunday as part of the Manitoba Threshermen's Reunion and Stampede.

To make the record, the threshers had to run simultaneously for at least 15 minutes.
