Authos has dicussed some very important points which are esstentail for good digestion especially the genetic aspect of the present broiler breeds that has resulted in some minor changes in digestive tract.

Another important point is undigestible protein and its role in gut health.

In fact a great article with some good points to help a nutritionists to formulate a good feed.

yes, Intestinal Environment is very import for the animals, it is usually been destroyed by the use of antibiotics, in China, we use probiotics to reduce the use of antibiotics, so that the intestinal environment will be repaired, feed conversion ratio be improved and more profit will be made. Thanks.
