Probiotics (or direct fed microbials) are becoming increasingly popular as one of the alternatives to Antibiotic Growth Promoters (AGP). The most important objectives for using probiotics in animal feed are to maintain and improve the performance (productivity and growth) of the animal and prevent and control enteric pathogens. In the context of the growing concern with the sub-therapeutic use of AGP in animal feed and greater appreciation of the role of the microbial ecology of the gastro-intestinal tract (GIT) in determining animal productivity, increasing numbers of probiotic products are being developed and used in animal nutrition.
