Vegetative bacteria in the ileum and colon of the pig, produce butyric and acetic acid thus stabilise the microflora of the pig. As a result of the consistent stabilizing effect of Miya-Gold® on gut health, a less favourable environment for pathogenic E. coli and Salmonella spp. is created, resulting in improved post-weaning parameters.
