Description

The overall objective of this study is to create a cheap, effective, ecofriendly alternative to the use of antibiotics on chicken farms by developing a new formula using yeasts, enzymes, and organic acids.

Objective(s)

  • Reduce the use of antibiotics in intensive chicken-rearing facilities
  • Produce the required enzymes and organic acids
  • Prepare animal diets supplemented with the formula
  • Analyze the life cycle of this new practice
  • Conduct a technical and economic analysis
