Pro and antibiotic

A lot is known about the use of antibiotics as growth chicks were housed in an electric batterybrooder. Feed and water were provided ad promoters in broiler feed, but how do they perform in libitum throughout the experimental peri-od of seven weeks. The main ingredients of comparison to probiotics, and can they be combined. Research the feed is shown in Table 1. A premix sup-plied standard minerals and vitamins to the at Bidhan Chandra Agricultural University in India lifts a experimental birds at recommended levels.
The test diets were prepared by mixing 100 kg of feed with different growth promotersas per doses recommended by the respective By L.Mandal, S.K.Mandal, N.Baidya and S.K.Sarkar

The birds were fed with starter ration (0- The use of feed additives as growth the manufacturers claiming their product(s) 28 days) followed by finisher ration (29-49

However, the converse use of Biospur in 0-4th week and Aurofac in 5-7th week (T12) could not evince any good result as compared to control.
Conclusively, it is noted that the use of an antibiotic followed by a probiotic on alter- nate week (T13) produced the best result in terms of gain in body weight & FCR and most economic return per broiler followedby use of antibiotic in starting phase and probiotic in finishing phase (T11).
