    Scope & contentKnown for broad-spectrum efficacy, phytogenics are a promising solution for the livestock industry

    Since the ban on antibiotic growth promoters in the EU in 2006, phytogenic feed additives have been on the rise in global animal production. In the United States, sub-therapeutic use of antibiotics for growth performance will no longer be allowed in 2017. As antibiotic-free feeding programs receive increased attention among scientists, nutritionists, feed manufacturers and farmers, phytogenics are moving further into the spotlight due to their holistic and broad-spectrum efficacy.
