Xylanase and Direct-Fed Microbials (DFM) Potential for Improvement of Live Performance, Energy Digestibility, and Reduction of Environmental Microbial Load of Broilers

Over 60 percent of poultry raised in the United States have never received antibiotics. This trend is common across most of the world and can be even higher in the EU. Increased pressure to limit antibiotic growth promoters cause a need for multi-faceted approaches to protecting birds’ health while promoting strong growth and feed efficiency are vital to producers’ success. These challenges have increased interest in feed additives such as exogenous enzyme and direct-fed microbials (DFMs).

BRI’s EnzaPro® is a unique proprietary blend of enzymes and direct-fed microbials. The unique blend offers the benefits of enzymes, prebiotics, and probiotics. BRI and Jordan University of Science and Technology, College of Agriculture, recently published an article Xylanase and Direct-Fed Microbials (DFM) Potential for Improvement of Live Performance, Energy Digestibility, and Reduction of Environmental Microbial Load of Broilers.  This article details the research done to evaluate not only growth performance but also gut health indicators. This article is the most recent published about BRI’s products and their solutions to an ever-changing industry. BRI is committed to bringing solutions to producers’ most challenging problems, including environmental sustainability goals, improved performance parameters, and contributions to better over-all flock health.

This report shows the key results in the following areas:

  • Body Weight Gain
  • Flock Uniformity
  • Environmental Pathogen Load
  • Zymbiotic Combination of xylanase and DFMs
  • Apparent Metabolizable Energy (AME) reduction in feed formulation
