Intestinal microbial balance leads to reduced performance and economic losses
Efficient animal production is a balancing act of nutrition, health, and animal welfare, especially when reducing or eliminating antibiotic utilization. In this context ensured intestinal health is absolutely essential. Challenges such as diseases, environmental factors, and feed ingredient quality, can negatively impact the intestinal microbial balance, leading to slower growth and reduced performance, which in turn result in economic losses. Microbiota imbalance (dysbiosis) but also overgrowth of clostridium perfringens enable growth of opportunistic bacteria such as Escherichia coli, which can result in different disorders. These disorders, such as diarrhea, wet litter, necrotic enteritis, leaky gut (impaired gut barrier function), intestinal inflammation (colitis) and poor immune status finally impair the animal’s feed efficiency, growth, and their wellbeing. This leads to economic losses for poultry and swine and aquaculture.
