Understanding Gut Flora in day old broilers:
Modern broiler chickens have unique characteristics in their gut flora, often considered relatively sterile compared to other animals.
The Challenge in Modern Poultry Houses:
In today's clean and controlled poultry houses, the limited exposure to beneficial microorganisms poses a challenge to broiler chicken gut health. Biosecurity measures and restricted access to the outside environment contribute to this reduced microbial diversity.
The Role of Environment Probiotics:
Environment probiotics are live beneficial bacteria that can be introduced to the chickens' surroundings. These probiotics help create a conducive environment for gut flora maturation by promoting a diverse and balanced microbial community.
The Benefits of Gut Flora Maturation:
When broiler chickens' gut flora matures optimally, several benefits are observed. It enhances nutrient absorption, strengthens the immune system, and improves digestion efficiency. This, in turn, translates to healthier birds with better growth rates and reduced susceptibility to infections.
The Sustainable Edge:
Not only does this approach promote animal welfare, lower the cost of production, and reduce the emergence of AMR bacteria, but it also aligns with sustainable farming practices. A healthier gut leads to reduced feed consumption and, consequently, lower costs, reduced dependency on antibiotics, and improved poultry production efficiency.
As the UK strive for enhanced animal well-being and sustainable agriculture, embracing environmental microbes becomes a crucial choice for modern poultry farmers. By providing broiler chickens with the proper microbial support, we pave the way for a healthier, more efficient, and environmentally conscious poultry industry.
