This study was conducted to investigate the effect of supplementation of the probiotic preparates with different probiotic strain on the meat production of broiler duck females. The experiment realised in half-operation conditions experimental base of Department of Poultry Science and Small Animal Husbandry of Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra in three-floor cage technology. Totally 45 one day broiler duck females hybrid PKR divided into three groups: control group - without addition of probiotic preparate, experimental group 1 - addition of probiotic preparate Propoul with strain Lactobacillus fermentum in powder form at drinking water in dose 0.40 g daily during all experiment, experimental group 2 - addition of probiotic preparate Protexin Concentrate with strain Enterococcus faecium in powder form at drinking water in dose 0.24 g daily during all experiment. The results from this study showed that supplementation of probiotic preparates Propoul and Protexin Concentrate in drinking water caused improvement of meat production of broiler ducks.
