There are presented the results of the use of probiotic feed supplement “PROPIG” in the feeding of replacement gilts and its effect on the functional state of the organism of animals, taking into account metabolic processes, development and growth intensity.

A balance experiment was conducted on 4 groups of large white breed pigs, 4 animals in group. Body growth trial was conducted on four groups, 10 animals in the group. The pigs of the 1st group (control) received a standard balanced diet. To the diets of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th groups the dietary supplement “PROPIG” in the amount of 2, 3 and 4 g/head/day were added. Composition of the supplement was: Lactobacillus plantarum CCM 7102, maltodextrin, fructooligosaccharides. Duration of the experiment was 152 days.

Dry matter digestibility coefficient in gilts of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th experimental groups was higher by 3.7; 6.5 and 6.8 % compared to control animals. Digestion of organic matter by pigs in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th group prevailed the control by 2.9; 6.4, and 6.7 %. The positive influence of a feed supplement on the assimilation of protein, fiber, calcium and phosphorus was revealed.

It was established that feeding animals with feed supplement in the amount of 2–4 g per day on the background of full-range diets does not have a negative effect on the functional state of the organism.

Average daily gains experimental groups pigs were 1.9–3.5 % higher in comparison with the control group. The positive results regarding the processes of digestion and assimilation of the main nutrients as well as the functional state and development of breeding pigs were obtained, that suggests the effectiveness of the use of the feed supplement “PROPIG” for pigs.
