ABSTRACT
A combined preparation with probiotic Schaumalac F 80M BONVITAL 4b 1841 (2,5 x 1010 KBE Enterococcus faecium DSM 7134) and phytase was supplemented to a basal ration with 4%. The effects on growth performance on thirty five weaned piglets/each group were studied for thirty days experimental period. The supplementation of combined preparation improved slightly Daily Weight Gain (DWG), Feed Consumption (FC) and Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR), kg feed/kg weight gain. At the end of experimental period, daily weight gain was increased 6% more and feed conversion ratio was decreased 3.4%, compared to the control group or without supplementation. The results indicate that the combined preparation may be less suppressive to the Escherichia coli. Overall a positive effect of the probiotic and phytase on growth performance was observed.
