The effects of using technological additives in feeding farm animals

Languages of publication
The increase in the genetic potential of livestock, enabling high yields of milk, meat and eggs, forces farmers to change the feeding system. Despite the availability of bulky and nutritious fodders characterized by high nutritional value, it is not possible to match the feed ration in a way that guarantees full coverage of the nutritional needs of high-yielding animals. Therefore, it is unavoidable to use specialized feed additives that allow you to raise the cow's profit that is obtained on the farm. The purpose of this work was the characteristics and effects of the use of technological additives in the nutrition of farm animals. This goal was achieved based on available foreign literature. Protection against metabolic diseases, improvement of breeding rates and increase in herd health are just some of the benefits that result from the introduction of specialized feed additives to animal feed doses. It should also be mentioned about the effects of preparations on production effects: production increase and improvement of physico-chemical parameters of milk, meat and eggs. The use of feed additives in feeding young animals improves the rearing results, through the impact on the growth and health of calves, piglets and chicks, thanks to which it is possible to produce high-production breeding material.
