Efficient poultry production is a balancing act of nutrition, gut health, and animal welfare, especially when reducing or eliminating antibiotic utilization. Challenges such as diets, diseases, environmental factors, and feed ingredient types, can negatively impact the intestinal microbial balance in poultry, leading to slower growth and reduced performance, which can result in economic losses. An overgrowth of Clostridium perfringens enables growth of other opportunistic bacteria such as Escherichia coli, which can result in different disorders in poultry. These disorders, such as diarrhea and wet litter, necrotic enteritis, gangrenous dermatitis, and focal duodenum necrosis, finally impair the animal’s feed efficiency, growth, and welfare. In addition, the control of Salmonella spp. in poultry continues to be a public health concern.
