Thank you Mr Hossain ,for sharing the current issue of livestock farming with the potential use of herbs @ phytobiotic. It was very interesting to learn that garlic extract post lots of potential as alternative product to AGP

Further to add on this topic, I would like to share that there is already lots of research had been done oregano essential oil on the potential of replacing antibiotic growth promoters. Research work conducted by Aristotle University oregano essential oil indicate that it is highly effective against both gram positive and gram negative bacteria, especially against 2 strains of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus and against single strains of Salmonella typhimurium, Pseudomonas aeroginosa, and Bacillus subtilis (Sivropoulou et al, 1996). Besides, oregano essential oil has been shown to possess antifungal activity against several Candida sp. with Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) levels 0.1ug/ml (Stiles et al, 1995) and anticoccidial activity against Eimeria sp. (Spais et al, 1998)

Harnessing all of the research conducted, a revolutionary and leading edge product has evolved, incorporating 100[percent] pure essential oil extract from Origanum hybrid sp. and is commercially available under the brand name of Orego-Stim® .

We had published lots of information in Engormix with regards to the use of Orego-Stim in livestock animal. The following are the title of the articles for your reference

1. Orego-Stim Boost Layer Performance ( 20th August 2009)
2. Coccidiosis in Poultry (4th August 2009)
3. Natural Antioxidant for Feed Vitamins (16th June 2009)
4. Ban on AGPs in the EU: Impact on The Asian Poultry Industry (9th June 2009)

Thank you.

I agree with Dr.Muhammad Nawaz Ali that toxic effects should be removed by refinning the herbal products.It is commonly said that herbal products does not have side effects, but it is a fact that there are side effects of herbal products and it is personnaly observed by me.

Thank you for this article I have used experimentally some medicinal herbs fruits and berries on some poultry strains of Salmonella to avoid side effects of antibiotics.I thinks that its a good alternative for the antibiotic and they will be very putative in the developing countries but they must be manufactured for the poultry industry.

This is an educating article.But it will be imperative to know if in-cooperating Garlic or some of these herbs into finished feeds for commercial feed producers will be cost effective and still maximize profit.
