Through their action on three lines of defence, Bacillus subtilis DSM 29784 and precision delivery coated butyrate help animals facing many external challenges, to maintain their physiological status in homeostasis and ensure their resilience. Thereby supporting the responsible use of antibiotics and improving sustainability of the livestock industry.
Antibiotic use as antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) has allowed to increase food production atlower cost but antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has also a cost both monetary and human. This observation pushes countries to adopt more strict regulations or antibiotic reduction programs. In addition, final consumers are expecting more natural and healthier products. They are more inclined towards animal welfare and environmentally friendly products and are increasingly aware of AMR issues. This pressure on the animal sector obliges the chain to adapt and find solutions to reduce their antibiotic use.
