Previous studies at this station on the addition of probiotics to turkey and broiler feeds have shown some favorable results; but, for the most part, there has been no response as has been the case for laying hens (see A.S. Series 76-10, 77-20 and 78-7). Probiotics usually contain, among other things, Lactobacillus types of cultures and are defined as being products which favor the establishment of life.
