Don't know

Most respondents report having experienced the best results from probiotics (50 percent) and organic acids (49
percent). Availability and experience may sway these numbers. For example, nearly one-fifth of respondents
"don't know" about the efficacy of phytogenics/essential oils (19 percent) or prebiotics (17 percent).
percent say "antibiotic free" and 16 percent tout "no antibiotics ever."
Seventy percent of respondents report that their company is actively exploring, testing or using feed additives
as antibiotic replacements or alternatives. But the move
poses some unique challenges.
Forty-four percent of respondents report that, even if they
find suitable feed formulation solutions, the adoption of proper on-farm management techniques to support animal health
will be difficult to implement. They also are concerned about

the additional feed additives costs (41 percent) and feel they
need access to more research and education (37 percent).

Efficacy of feed additives for AGP replacement
Once the line of questioning became more specific, 20 percent of participants opted out because they
did not have in-depth knowledge of their company's
feed formulations. The remaining 80 percent delved
into the feed additives they have been using to eliminate or reduce antibiotic usage and their effects.
