I'm trying to find out more info on using probiotics in cattle feed. My main question is can one include probiotics in feed and still make a Natural, or Organic claim. From what little I've read these are not antibiotics.

Shouldn't be a problem as all your feeding them is live bacteria or yeast. Course these are usually sprayed on a carrier which can be anything from fine ground corn to wheat midds. "Pro" biotics are basically the opposite of "anti" biotics. One inhibits the growth of bacteria while the other encourages it.

If your were using it in organic production I would make sure it is approved. Organics are not allowed to use GMO, which some probiotics may include. Otherwise you are good to go.
I have found it easier to put it in the drinking water instead of their feed.
