In recent years there has been a rapid trend to end use of antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) in livestock feed. This has brought a new area in veterinary research and a surge of new products that claim that they can control pathogens to a similar level as AGPs. Several alternatives to AGPs have been successfully implemented on farms, including probiotics, prebiotics, symbiotics, organic acids, biochar, bentonite and many more. Plant-based antimicrobial products, referred to as phytogens, are surging in popularity and use. Although strongly antimicrobial, plant phytogens have a range of other beneficial effects, including insecticide, anti-cancer, immunomodulating, drug interference, altering hormone levels and many others known to the general public via the effects of plant essential oils.
