The market pressure to reduce antibiotics is considerably
influencing producers to identify new alternatives that
stimulate production among animals while delivering
the same benefits provided by antibiotic growth
promoters AGPs. Removal of AGPs from poultry diets
needs to be carefully planned and executed. Daniel
Ramirez and Tim Goossens at Nutriad show how feed
additives have gained considerable interest lately
because of their ability to improve performance by
sustaining a healthy gut environment through similar
physiological mechanisms which may, in turn, affect
microorganisms, maximising poultry health and growth,
whilst enhancing the efficiency of feed conversion.
