Probiotics are good live micro-organisms and are conceivably able to modulate the balance and biological activities of the gastrointestinal (GI) microflora. Probiotics are viewed as advantageous to the host. Different types of probiotics have positive effects on various digestive processes in ruminants which include cellulolytic functions, synthesis of microbial proteins, and prevention and control of diseases. Probiotics, used as replacement of antibiotics can effectively protect the calves from gastrointestinal diseases without any harmful effects as well as promote growth and health status by regulating gut micro biota.
