Abstract:

This article describes the beneficial effect of Bacillus aerius probiotic formulation on the growth of poultry chicks. B.aerius was cultivated by submerged fermentation. Biomass was harvested and formulated using white dextrin. Four kg of cream free flowing powder formulation was obtained from 50L broth after spray drying. Poultry field trials on a group of day old chicks were carried out. Live body weight being significantly higher (P<0.05) and FCR being significantly lower (P<0.05) as compared with the control group, with no mortality was reported. The study indicates that B.aerius proves to be a growth promoter and thus is a promising candidate for commercial probiotic for poultry.


Keywords: Probiotic, B.aerius,spray drying, poultry field trials, FCR.
