A trial was conducted using BV 300 commercial layers in two ocks from 25-40 weeks. The gut acting antibiotic growth promoter (Bacitracin Methylene Disalicylate) and acidier (organic acids and coated sodium butyrate) in control (T0) are replaced with 0.5 kg of MonoBlok-ECS per ton of feed in treatment (T1). The daily egg production, feed intake and mortality are recorded in both the groups. The production performance, mortality percentage and overall economics in terms of feed intake per egg and feed cost per egg are advantageous to the treatment group fed with MonoBlok-ECS at the level of 0.5kg per ton of feed.

Key Words: Production performance, MonoBlok- ECS, Commercial layers
