Animal husbandry and poultry farming have been undergoing serious changes for several years now. The industry specialists managed to significantly increase the genetic potential of farm animals and birds, and this immediately affected the change in the technology of feeding and keeping animals. Today, plant-based compound feeds are no longer sufficient for proper nutrition, and the use of feed antibiotics, which has long been practiced by livestock breeders and poultry farmers around the world, has ceased to be relevant. The results of numerous studies of the effect of antibacterial drugs on agricultural products are known to everyone: due to uncontrolled use, antibiotics accumulate in milk, meat and eggs. The use of these products gradually leads to the emergence of antibiotic resistance in humans, from which emerging diseases are poorly treatable. Scientists have sounded the alarm, observing the rapid growth of superbugs that can cause the collapse of the entire modern healthcare system.
The days of the race for the quantity of products are over. The modern buyer began to give preference to safe and environmentally friendly products. Large network companies reacted immediately: tightened control over the residual amount of antibiotics and began to increasingly refuse to accept products that do not meet their new requirements.
Agricultural producers were forced to look for new ways to prevent and treat livestock diseases, as well as to increase the profitability of production without the use of antibacterial drugs to stimulate the growth and productivity of animals. To do this, large-scale production and small farms began to introduce new technologies for feeding farm animals. One of the most relevant, natural and safe technologies is feed additives based on probiotics.
The addition of probiotics to the feed increases the effectiveness of the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases by 40%. Probiotics, contributing to the conservation of young animals, reduce losses by up to 30%. The livestock increases resistance to stresses associated with changing feeds, vaccination, transportation, etc., increases resistance to diseases, which in turn leads to a reduction in the cost of treatment and sanitary measures. And by improving metabolism, you can get a significant increase in weight gain, milk yield and egg production without additional feed costs.
The products of livestock complexes, poultry farms and fish farms, where probiotics are actively used, are better in their taste and nutritional properties. In addition, the absence of traces of antibiotics, chemotherapeutic drugs and disinfectants in it makes it as suitable as possible for a healthy diet, the principles of which an increasing number of residents of developed countries are trying to adhere to. The demand for organic products is growing all over the world every year, which opens up great prospects for its producers.
The use of probiotics does not have side effects, even if the dosage has been exceeded 1000 times. This is due to the fact that the microorganisms included in their composition are friendly to the intestinal normoflora of humans and animals. It is also worth noting that the replacement of feed antibiotics with probiotic complexes, as practice has shown, can lead to a significant improvement in the sanitary and hygienic and environmental situation not only in the livestock complexes themselves, but also in the areas where they are located.
