The influence of probiotic «Monosporin» on the growth performance of piglets using feed rations  varying degrees of balance. Is defined nutrients of basic ratio which is used at the farm, and normalized by the inclusion of corn bran and premix «Tekro». It is shown that the use of the basic diet with probiotic live weight of piglets increased by 1.3% and the average daily weight gain of animals – by 1.7–2.3% over the control. By using normalized diet with probiotic preparations value of body weight and daily weight gain of young pigs increased by 13.2–18.7% and 19.4–39.2% respectively. Comparison of productivity indices of piglets who consumed diets normalized without probiotics and with probiotic, indicates a an increase of 3.0–6.5% and 7.5–11.7% in favor of the latter. Along with the increase of animal growth performance using normalized diets with probiotic preparation «Monosporin» costs of fodder units per 1 kg of gain is reduced by 25.3%. The results indicate that the effect of the use of probiotics is associated with the fact that increases the digestibility of feed, improving their digestibility, it activates the body's metabolism, stimulates the synthesis of amino acids, vitamins, enzymes and antibiotic substances that suppress pathogens and increase the overall resistance of the animal organism to viral diseases and various adverse (stressful) factors. In assessing the cost efficiency of using normalized ration with the addition of premix TM «Tekro» and probiotic «Monosporin» shows that in complex their application the best result is observed: the level of profitability of 47.7%, and the profit from the sale of 1 head – 185.09 UAH. While the profitability of pork production of using probiotic  together with the basic feed ration is 7,8%.
