At present, the  feed additives  commonly used in China can be roughly divided into nutritional feed additives, general feed additives, and medicinal feed additives. This year, the state requires feed manufacturers to stop producing commercial feed containing growth-promoting drug feed additives. That is, it is a feed additive that has the functions of bacteriostasis and disease prevention, deworming, promoting the utilization of feed nutrients, and promoting animal growth and production alone or in combination. So what are the varieties of growth-promoting drug feed additives?
