Probiotics for poultry

Probiotics are important for poultry production as they help the bird achieve and maintain a balanced microflora as quickly as possible. The chick hatches with a limited gut microflora (the range of microorganisms that live symbiotically in the intestine of the bird). It can take up to 4 weeks for the bird to achieve a stable adult microflora (a steady balance of beneficial and non-beneficial bacteria), which is important for bird growth and health.

Probiotics are identified at three levels: Genus, species and strain. Studies confirm that health and production benefits are strain-specific and only rarely apply to species.

Chr. Hansen probiotics contain unique, patented strains. They have specific, targeted, beneficial modes of action, making them particularly suitable for animal production.
