Animal health

Probiotics are naturally occurring microbes that can reduce antibiotic usage in livestock and bring associated health benefits.

probiotics_700x200Rising global consumption of meat combined with legislative and consumer-driven demands to reduce the use of antibiotics as growth promoters have created a need for sustainable solutions in animal farming. At Novozymes, we are applying our long track record in developing and producing bacterial strains to develop feed additives for probiotic applications in animals. Probiotics, or direct fed microbials, are naturally occurring live microbes added to feed to improve the gut flora of pigs, poultry and other animals. They improve animal health, growth and feed utilization, thereby providing a natural alternative to antibiotic growth promoters. For more information, please contact us.
