ABSTRACT
The effects of different feed additives (flavomycin, oregano, MOS and Lactobacillus plantarum) added to diets for growing pigs (20 kg BW) on nutrient digestibility and the microbial status of faeces were investigated in the study. Diet supplementation with different feed additives had no effect on the digestibility of most nutrients. Faecal bacterial populations (E. coli, Lactobacilli spp.) were not affected by diet composition. Diets supplemented with oregano, MOS and L. plantarum did not increase the activity of microbial enzymes or the concentration of short-chain fatty acids in the faeces of pigs.
