“The Effects of Direct-fed Microbial, Primalac®, or Salinomycin Supplementation on Intestinal Lactate Isomers and Cecal Volatile Fatty Acid Concentrations in Broilers”
This study examines the role that DFM plays in controlling enteric pathogens by looking at the concentrations of lactic acid and volatile fatty acids in the cecum and intestines of poultry. The effects of a Direct-Fed Microbial PrimaLac diet are compared with a control and salinomycin antibiotic diet, to show acid concentrations generally reduced with DFM feeding.
