Title variants
Languages of publication
In the interest of animal health as well as future consumers, natural additives are increasingly being given to animals, such as probiotics, prebiotics and synbiotics. Defined as "natural growth promoters" stimulate growth and proper functioning of the body, which primarily affects the health of individuals as well as the productivity and consequently the quantity and quality of the products they receive. These formulations can be administered to both adult and young adult subjects. For dairy cows, the use of probiotic and prebiotic formulas contributes to an increase in milk yield and a reduction in the risk of mastitis. In calves formulation increases the resistance to diseases of the digestive system, which increases the weight gain of young individuals. Probiotics, prebiotics and synbiotics are substances that can replace antibiotics in the treatment and prevention of many diseases in cattle.
