A.S. Series 78-7
Probiotics have been one of the latest types of feed additives to be of interest to poultry producers. They are designed to improve the birds' performance by effecting a more favorable microflora in the intestinal tract. There have been numerous reports of improved rates of gain and feed utilization with broilers and turkeys and improved production and feed conversion with laying hens. Work of this type has been reported from the University of Florida, Texas A and M University and the University of Arizona.
