A Field Trail To Estimate The Effect Of Lactobacillus And Yeast As Antimycotoxin In Broiler's Ration
An evaluation of the efficacy of different treatment trails using two probiotics (active dry yeast and lactobacilli) in controlling aflatoxicosis in broiler chicks was done. Seven days old chicks were randomly divided into four groups each 50 birds Group(1) was given basal diet only and kept as control negative, group II was given basal diet contaminated with 5 mg/kg ration (AFB1) and kept as control positive, group III was given basal diet contaminated with AFB1 5 mg/kg ration and given 0.5 gm/liter water yeast extract, group IV was given basal diet contaminated with AFB1 5 mg/kg ration and given 0.5 gm/liter Lactobacilli. At the one and 2 month of the experiment period biochemical analysis (Liver, Kidney function and some mineral) were applied. The result revealed the use of probiotics were effective in reducing the mortality rates, severity of intoxication, enhance liver and kidney function to nearly approach normal values improve the biochemical parameters of all groups as Liver, Kidney function and protein probiotics were proved to have synergistic effect in controlling Aflatoxicosis in broiler chicks.
