In this course we are going to establish a connection between the typically measured variables of economic importance in production animal agriculture and the major modes of action of probiotic bacteria.

  • Through these interactions, daily feeding of effective probiotics results in a greater percentage of normal, healthy individuals in any herd, lot, flow, or flock.
  • Understanding the modes of action of probiotic bacteria will enable you to make the most informed product choices for the animals in your care.
