Effect of supplementing direct-fed microbials on broiler performance, nutrient digestibilities, and immune responses

    Direct-fed microbials (DFM) are used to improve livestock health and performance. The effects of 2 DFM products, a blend of 3 Bacillus strains (DFMB) and a Propionibacterium spp. (DFMP), on broiler performance, nutrient utilization, and immune responses were investigated.
