Previous studies showed that inclusion of polyphenol-rich plant extracts in feed improves performance in ruminants, but the effect may vary depending on the dosage used. It has been shown that polyphenols modify the digestive process through modulation of gastrointestinal microbiota and bypass of protein digestion. The rumen houses a highly complex microbiota which is able to convert indigestible ...

The importance of the microbiota in the gastrointestinal tract of animals is recognized to have an important role in host health and productivity. In this study, we sought to assess and characterize the microbiota in the feces of poultry chickens from several farms of 2 different integrators in the same geographical region of South America. These companies were changing AGP program to an AGP-free ...
