In this video, researchers and farmers present their experiences with feeding lactic acid bacteria to organic broilers. These bacteria can pass to the intestinal system, which would improve health and the local immune system - which could mean a higher digestibility, benefiting the growth of broilers and lower mortality rates.
The Danish farmer, Lars Hedegaard, shares how he used lactic acid bacteria in his production, the improvements he has seen, and his recipe!
This video is of interest to farmers looking to improve the health of their broilers using lactic acid bacteria.
