Relationship of Dietary Antimicrobial Drug Administration with Broiler Performance, Decreased Population Levels of Lactobacillus salivarius, and Reduced Bile Salt Deconjugation in the lleum of Broiler Chickens

Guban , J; Korver, Doug; Allison, Gwen; Tannock, G W


Straight-run broiler chickens were raised either in floor pens or wire-floored cages (trial 1) or in floor pens only (trials 2, 3, and 4). Birds raised in floor pens had lower BW and feed intakes than those raised in cages. The administration of bacitracin in the feed increased feed intake from d 12 to d 35, decreased the feed conversion ratio during the same period in trial 2, and improved the weight gain of broilers from d 0 to 10 in trial 3. The concentrations of conjugated bile salts...[Show more]
