Necrotic enteritis (NE) is a multi-factorial disease, resulting in an important negative impact on the poultry industry due to decreased weight gain, increased mortality, worse feed conversion ratio, greater medication costs and increased risk of contamination of poultry products for human consumption (Timbermont et al., 2011; Paiva and McElroy, 2014).
