Features and Customer Benifits
Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms that have well-documented positive effects in animals. They work differently from antibiotics. Rather than destroying bacterial flora, good and bad, as antibiotics do, probiotics are beneficial flora, which improve overall immune health by crowding out and competing with pathogenic bacteria. Probiotics also create a gastrointestinal environment that enables better nutrient absorption.
Pathogenic bacteria can run rampant in poultry houses. Star-Labs research has shown that a direct-fed probiotic supplement has the best ability to maintain an optimal microbial balance of good bacteria versus pathogenic bacteria for healthier, more profitable flocks
With a select sub-species of primary Lactobacillus and Streptococcus bacteria, the PrimaLac culture is the most effective probiotic for animal gastrointestinal health. A proprietary culturing method— transferring a viable liquid medium to dry medium— together with rigid quality control standards at every step, create a highly viable product which will survive warmer storage temperatures and deliver a reliably high number of beneficial organisms to animals.
For poultry, the ideal probiotic choices include:
Lactobacillus acidophilus, which produces helpful chemicals during the animal’s growth phase
Lactobacillus rhamnosus, which complements the former L. acidophilus
Bifidobacterium thermophilum, a microorganism associated with the strengthening of the immunological status of the animal
Enterococcus faecium, which produces beneficial lactic acid in a helpful pH range.
