How would you characterize the inclusion of the following
items in your poultry rations?
Not used Increased Stayed same Reduced
Thera peutic antibiotics
Pro biotic org a nis m s
Ye ast cell w all pro d ucts
M ycotoxin binder/inhibitor
Probiotic organisms, yeast cell wall products and mycotoxin binder/inhibitors
all showed the largest increases in use among survey participants.
In a separate question, 52 percent said they include
prebiotics in their feed formulation, and 62 percent
said they include probiotics.
Most likely in response to growing consumer
demand, labeling claims have clearly become an
important aspect of poultry product feed marketing,
with a substantial number of respondents indicating
that they now include some kind of labeling claim,
with the most prevalent being “no hormones”. Other
claims that are being offered include (in order): no
antibiotics/drugs; no animal byproducts fed or “all
vegetable diet”; all natural organic; and all corn
diet. As consumer demand appears to be growing
in this area, it would not be at all surprising to see
this number increase in 2014. ;
