Effect of additives and various microorganisms оn fermentation in the rumen

Keywords: rumen, gastrointestinal tract, yeast, probiotics, prebiotics.


The article provides information on the use of drugs to improve scarring. Some changes in the composition of the diet may improve the profile of fermentation of microorganisms. Diarrhea is the main cause of morbidity and mortality of calves at an early age, so its prevention is important for stimulating the development of calves. However, due to the growing risk of antibiotic resistance being released into the environment and entering animal products, probiotic supplements have been developed as an alternative to improve animal health and productivity. Although the administration of probiotics to animals has been linked to the efficacy of certain groups (pathogens) in the gut microbiota, it is currently unclear how they interact with the entire gut society.Probiotics and prebiotics have the ability to regulate the balance and activity of the microbiota of the gastrointestinal tract, and are therefore considered beneficial to animals and used as a functional feed. Feeding restrictions have shown that they significantly affect the structure and activity of the gut microbial cultures of ruminants. Probiotics are micro-organisms that are not of scar origin but can be adapted to scar conditions and improve the fermentation process. Probiotics are defined as living microorganisms or components of microbial cells that favorably affect the host organism as they regulate the gut microbiota in order to improve animal health. inconsistent, perhaps because the dynamics of gastrointestinal development have not been taken into account. Probiotics may be used to reduce the risk or severity of pathological conditions in stressful conditions caused by impaired bowel function. Probiotics used in feed for ruminants mainly include fungi and bacteria that have replaced traditional antibiotics. In healthy calves in which the microorganism culture is relatively stable, the minimal benefits of probiotics may be noticeable. Probiotic yeast organisms have been introduced to increase the effectiveness of the scar to regulate the microflora. The focus is on the benefits of probiotics and prebiotics for the gastrointestinal ecosystem microbiome in ruminants, which are closely related to animal feeding and health.
