Multi-Species Probiotic

Strains Matter

  • The active components in Chr. Hansen Multi-Species Probiotic are unique strains of Bacillus licheniformis (1.6x109 spores/g of product) and Bacillus subtilis (1.6x109 spores/g of product)
  • Heat stable - Spore forming to survive pelleting
  • Storage - Unopened bag: min. 24 months when kept dry below 25C
  • Proven safe for humans, animals, and environment
  • Chr. Hansen Multi-Species Probiotic is produced to the highest technical and quality standards in state-of-the-art, purpose built facilities
  • ISO 22000 certified food/feed safety
  • FAMI-QS certified production

Enzymes produced by B. licheniformis in vitro: alkaline phosphatase, esterase, lipase, leucine aminopeptidase, valine aminopeptidase, cysteine aminopeptidase, chymotrypsin, acid phosphatase, galactosidase, and glucosidase

Enzymes produced by B. subtilis in vitro: alkaline phosphatase, esterase, lipase, leucine aminopeptidase, valine aminopeptidase, acid phosphatase, and glucosidase

In chickens and turkeys:

Chr. Hansen Multi-Species Probiotic has been proven to positively affect the performance of broiler chickens and turkeys.  In eight trials conducted in six countries, daily feeding of Chr. Hansen Multi-Species Probiotic was associated with a 2.3% improvement in the slaughter weight of broilers and a 6% reduction in FCR.  Similarly, in 17 trials in six countries, daily feeding of Chr. Hansen Multi-Species Probiotic was associated with a 2.6% improvement in the slaughter weight of turkeys and a 1.7% reduction in FCR.

In piglets:

Chr. Hansen Multi-Species Probiotic has been proven to positively affect the performance of weaned piglets. In 32 university and field trials conducted around the world, involving more than 70,000 piglets, and a variety of management and local feed formulations, average daily gain (ADG) improved by an average of 10% and feed conversion ratio (FCR) improved by an average of 5% (See Figure 1).  In addition, the average cost of medication decreased, uniformity of weights improved, and housing facilities were better utilized.

In calves:

Chr. Hansen Multi-Species Probiotic has been proven to positively affect the performance of weaned calves.  In three well-controlled research trials, daily feeding of Chr. Hansen Multi-Species Probiotic in milk replacer and starter feeds from 2 to 11 weeks of age significantly improved ADG (See Figure 2) driven by higher feed intake.

In rabbits:

Chr. Hansen Multi-species Probiotic has been proven to positively affect the performance of pregnant and lactating does and suckling offspring. In a well-controlled university research trial, pregnant does were fed Chr. Hansen Multi-species Probiotic from day 20 of pregnancy or from day 1 of pregnancy and their performance was compared to does that received only the standard diet without probiotic supplementation. When our probiotic was fed from day 1 of pregnancy, yield of milk from 1 to 14 days increased by 24% (2,341 g versus 1,885 g, p<0.05) and the growth of suckling rabbits improved by 16% (14.2 g/day versus 16.5 g/d)

At weaning, young rabbits (36 days old), were divided into three homogeneous groups: one control group, one group having Chr. Hansen Multi-species Probiotic in the does’ feed until week 9, and one group having it until week 14. Addition of Chr. Hansen Multi-species Probiotic to does’ feed increased the live weight of the rabbits at weaning by 6-7%. In the growth phase (5 to 9 weeks), as well as, in the fattening phase (10-14 weeks), addition of Chr. Hansen Multi-species Probiotic improved ADG by 13% and FCR by 14%. The addition of Chr. Hansen Multi-species Probiotic resulted in heavier carcasses and lower feeding costs. The most pronounced effect was seen with continual feeding of Chr. Hansen Multi-species Probiotic.

In fish:

A study was conducted to determine the efficacy of Chr. Hansen Multi-species Probiotic and Ferroin solution on growth performance, body composition and hematological parameters in kutum, Rutilus frisii kutum, fry (a white fish). The fish were fed dry pellets containing various ratios of probiotics and Ferroin for 60 days after absorption of the yolk sac. At the end of the trial, growth indices, body composition and hematological parameters were assessed. Regarding body composition, total protein levels were higher, and ash, moisture and lipid levels were lower in fish receiving the probiotic and Ferroin treatments compared with the control group (p<0.05). Fish receiving diets supplemented with probiotics and ferroin solution showed significantly faster growth than those fed the basal diet (control). The vast majority of hematological parameters were highest in fish fed probiotic (1.6 x 109 cfu/g dry pellet) + ferroin solution (7 mg/kg dry pellet) + dry pellets. These results indicate that the combination of Chr. Hansen multi-species probiotic and ferroin solution represents an effective dietary supplement for improving carcass quality, growth performance and hematological parameters in kutum fry (azarin et al., 2015. probiotics and antimicrobial proteins).

Application: For all species, add 1 - 2 pounds of Chr. Hansen Multi-Species Probiotic per one ton (2,000 pounds) of complete feed.

Recommended use: Add 1 pound per ton of complete feed for: rabbits, chickens, guinea fowl, turkey, sheep, goats, pigs, and weaned calves. Add 2 pounds per ton of complete feed for: cattle (>500 lb) and horses.

Package: 40 lb bag

Storage: Store in a cool, dry area for maximum stability. Avoid leaving bag open for extended periods of time.
