During the past 50 years, the livestock and poultry industries have developed in several areas including nutrition, genetics, engineering, management, and communications to maximizing the efficiency of growth performance and meat yield. Now these industries must focus more attention on how animal agriculture affects the environment and food safety. As in many other industries, the global paradigm is shifting from an emphasis on productive efficiency to one of public security. Nothing… Expand
Use of Antimicrobials from Plants in Feed as a Control Measure forPathogenic Microorganisms
TLDR
It appears that changes in diet and management practices could precipitate increased shedding of pathogens, and travel and the globalization of trade further increase the risk of spreading antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Expand
The Effects of Fermacto, Bactocell and Biostrong in Antibiotic-free Diets on the Performance of Broilers
TLDR
The result of current experiment had shown that antibiotic alternatives not only didn’t have an effect similar to antibiotic but also to control diet, and matrix-value method of diet formulation with biostrong lessened chick performance. Expand
Glutamine as a Feed Supplement for Piglets: a Review / Glutamina jako dodatek do paszy dla prosiąt: przegląd
TLDR
Glutamine improves epithelium structure and accelerates the growth of intestinal villi in which nutrients are absorbed, thus improving feed utilization and growth performance in piglets and improves animal health. Expand
Dietary synbiotic supplementation improves the growth performance, body antioxidant pool, serum biochemistry, meat quality, and lipid oxidative stability in broiler chickens
TLDR
It was concluded that the supplementation of 0.2% MOS along with LBA at 106 CFU/g is optimum for better growth performance, serum biochemistry, antioxidant profile, health indices, meat quality, and lipid oxidative stability of broiler chickens. Expand
Effects of Phase Feeding Different Levels of Fungus Myceliated Grain on Broiler Performance and Health
TLDR
Eimeria counts for challenged broilers in the 5% grower phase were significantly higher than that of broilers given the 1% and 10% inclusion level, and Elevations in IgA and IgG levels were observed in the growerphase at the 1%, as well as the starter-grower-finisher phase at the 10% level. Expand
Effects of supplementation with yeast culture and enzymatically hydrolyzed yeast on performance of early lactation dairy cattle.
One hundred fifty multiparous cows were balanced to 1 of 3 treatments (2 pens/trt) according to previous lactation 305-d mature equivalent yield to evaluate supplementation with yeast culture (YC;Expand
Dietary Mannan‐oligosaccharides potentiate the beneficial effects of Bifidobacterium bifidum in broiler chicken
TLDR
Better production performance, gut microbial composition, serum biochemistry, antioxidant profile and health indices were depicted by broiler chicken supplemented with 0·2% MOS and 106 CFU BFD per g of feed. Expand
Efeito de um composto de leveduras na incidência de diarreia em bezerras criadas em diferentes sistemas de alojamento
TLDR
It is concluded that oral yeast supplementation for animals raised in the open was able to reduce the effects of the challenges caused by this system, decreasing the incidence of diarrhea. Expand
Productive performance of broilers supplemented with tylosin phosphate or enramycin as growth promoters.
The productive performance of broilers supplemented with tylosin phosphate and enramycin as growth promoters up to 42 days of age was evaluated. Four hundred male broilers were distributed into 4Expand

Removal of antibiotic growth promoters from poultry diets: implications and strategies to minimise subsequent problems
TLDR
It is hoped that nutritional control will lead to microbiological control, allowing for more consistent production responses in the absence of antibiotics. Expand
ANTIMICROBIAL DRUG USE AND VETERINARY COSTS IN U.S. LIVESTOCK PRODUCTION
TLDR
Preliminary estimates are presented suggesting that discontinuing the use of antimicrobial drugs in hog production would initially decrease feed efficiency, raise feed costs, reduce production, and raise prices to consumers. Expand
Immunoadjuvant activity of oral Lactobacillus casei: influence of dose on the secretory immune response and protective capacity in intestinal infections.
Lactobacilli, often used as effectors of host functions, could play an important role in maintaining human health by controlling other intestinal microorganisms capable of producing harmful effects.Expand
Prevention of Salmonella typhimurium colonization of broilers with D-mannose.
TLDR
Certain carbohydrates may provide a means to reduce S. typhimurium contamination in broilers by blocking D-mannose adherence to chicken intestine in vitro and reducing the mean log10 counts of control and mannose groups were significantly reduced. Expand
Mucosal competitive exclusion to reduce Salmonella in swine.
TLDR
Data indicate that use of MCES may be a useful approach for control of Salmonella in swine, and presence ofSalmonella was determined in both qualitative (10 tissues) and quantitative (two tissues) samples. Expand
Factors affecting efficiency of NSP -degrading enzymes in rations for pigs and poultry
TLDR
Assessment of factors responsible for variation in the effectiveness of NSP-degrading enzymes in feeding of poultry and pigs found some evidence of possible interactions between carbohydrases and phytases in pigs compared with broilers which are inconsistent and need to be clarified. Expand
The effects of dietary mannaoligosaccharides on cecal parameters and the concentrations of enteric bacteria in the ceca of salmonella-challenged broiler chicks.
TLDR
The ability of different enteric pathogens and coliforms to trigger agglutination of yeast cells (Saccharomyces cerevisiae, NCYC 1026) and a yeast cell wall preparation (MOS) was examined and had no effect on cecal concentrations of lactobacilli, enterococci, anaerobic bacteria, lactate, volatile fatty acid, or cECal pH. Expand
Effects of antibiotic regimens on resistance of Escherichia coli and Salmonella serovar Typhimurium in swine
TLDR
Fecal samples were obtained before, during, and after antibiotic treatment for isolation of the challenge organism and E coli for resistance analysis using a minimum inhibitory concentration analysis. Expand
Antibiotic use in animal agriculture
TLDR
This paper aims to provide a history of antibiotic uses, risks, benefits, and economic considerations, and current and future research into antibiotic resistance and its applications, as well as to suggest future research topics. Expand
Reproduction and treatment of necrotic enteritis in broilers.
TLDR
Inoculation of broth cultures of C perfringens directly into the duodenum, using a surgically inserted tetrafluoroethylene resin tube, indicated a relationship existed between the number of Cperringens inoculated and the gross lesions. Expand
