    Abstract

    In present day culture regimes, animals are subjected constantly to intense management practices which tell upon their ability to remain healthy as they are driven to achieve high production standards. The system of the body most likely to succumb to such stressful conditions is the intestinal tract which constitutes a doorway for pathogenic microorganisms. Traditionally, farmers have used lectrolytes and antibiotics to combat diseases and infection, but pressure is mounting for much greater control over the use of antibiotics and farmers are thus forced to look for alternative methods for healthier and quicker growth and disease control.
