ELANCO has taken over the sole UK distribution of GalliPro Fit, manufactured by Chr. Hansen.

The product is a triple-strain probiotic that supports gut health in poultry.

Polly Davies, Elanco monogastric sales leader, said GalliPro Fit can prove a viable option to incorporate into rations.

“What makes the probiotic different is the fact it contains three carefully selected, naturally occurring bacterial strains: two B. subtilis and one of B. amyloliquefaciens,” she said.

“The combination of bacteria works together to support Intestinal Integrity, contributing to feed utilisation and improving the bird’s microbiome, while delivering excellent returns on investment.”

Ms Davies added: “GalliPro Fit can be used in two different ways. Firstly, to tackle a bacterial challenge, such as Enterococcus or E. Coli, and secondly to maintain long term performance, ultimately contributing to a healthier, more productive bird.”
