Improving Performance and Gut Health Using Probiotics

Today’s accelerated live production schedule leaves little time for birds’ gut development. Birds are exposed to harmful pathogens like Escherichia coli, Clostridium perfringens and Eimeria daily. Without a healthy microbiome, these pathogens wreak havoc on health and performance – from reducing body weight gain and raising feed conversion to drastically increasing mortality. There is a global movement to reduce the use of antibiotics, both therapeutics and growth promoters (AGPs), to overcome antimicrobial resistance concerns and preserve the effectiveness of available antibiotics.
