There are a lot of bacteria that occur in poultry houses, ending up
being ingested by the birds, together with the feed. Some naturally
occurring bacteria seem to promote good technical results. Other
bacteria, often being pathogens as well, seem to have a detrimental
effect on results. Also, an ideal balance of environmental bacteria
flora may positively influence poultry health and productivity,
including energy utilization.
