This book gives a comprehensive overview of the mode of action of probiotics and the theories behind it.
In addition, it highlights the main benefits of using probiotics in poultry production, such as maintaining gut health and integrity, reducing gut inflammation, modulating the immune system, preventing bacterial lameness, preventing reproductive tract infections, combating various enteric pathogens and improving performance.
The chapters of this book illustrate various studies which show the efficacy of probiotics in reducing livestock and poultry diseases, potentially reducing the need for antibiotic intervention, in addition to improving production performance.
