With regard to carcass quality, Braude (2) reported no effect of antibiotics as determined by length and depth of carcass, degree of fatness, dressing percentage, backfat thickness and nitrogen, fat and water content of the tissues. The growth-promoting effect of antibiotics has been related to a number of mechanisms : a nutrient-sparing effect by a reduced destruction of nutrients has been reported by Armstrong and Curnow (8). - an increased absorptive capacity due to the thinning of the intestinal wall was suggested (9) as an explanation for the growth-promoting 33 effect, which has been confirmed by Dierick et al.
