Abstract

The addition of both Bacillus probiotics, without interruption for three consecutive cycles, improved the reproductive performance of the sows in terms of prolificacy. Furthermore, the B. amyloliquefaciens strain also exhibited a significant increase in the number of live piglets born per litter. Probiotic administration for three full cycles appeared to promote a more stable milk composition with B. amyloliquefaciens and was shown to have a clear impact on the gut microbial ecosystem of sows.
