ABSTRACT
Microbiological stability assessment was carried out in 20 samples of PP-grower type mixture during 3-month storage under typical farm conditions. The experimental samples (18 samples) did not contain an antibiotic growth stimulator but they differed with regard to the type and amount of the acidifying additive used preparation. The following preparations were used in the experiment: fumaric acid, sodium formate, Schaumacid, Agricid F, Agro-Cid and Orego-Cid. The acidifying additives used improved the microbiological stability of feeds, especially with regard to the development of Coli and Clostridium bacteria. No clear influence of the above preparations on the growth of yeasts and mould fungi was found.
