The Use of a Yeast Fermentation Product or an Essential Oil as an Alternative to Tylosin in the Diets of Finishing Cattle

The addition of Saccharomyces cerevisiae fermentation products (SCFP) and essential oils to finishing diets are two potential alternatives—both of which act by altering the rumen microbial communities and plausibly reduce the incidence of liver abscesses.
