Gastrointestinal microflora and its influence on the host
Author: Michaela Mohnl
A well established intestinal microflora is crucial for the health of our animals, especially if we expect high production performance. A healthy normal microflora is the first line of defense to invading pathogens and thus it is extremely important for the ability to fight off infections with enteric pathogens. Furthermore, it is also necessary for a well functioning and effective digestion of nutrients, resulting in good growth performance parameters.
