The gastrointestinal microbiota plays a very important role in the physiology of farm animals. Despite substantial knowledge of this ecosystem, it is necessary to obtain additional information on the mechanisms mediating their interactions. Such knowledge will facilitate the optimization of the development and function of gastrointestinal microbiota of, especially young, farm animals. It can be expected, that new biotechnological and natural methods for manipulation of gastrointestinal microbiota will be developed. These methods will enable to replace prophylactic antibiotic use in farm animals' diet and will contribute to the production of healthy and safe foods while at the same time benefiting the environment. Several useful in vitro methods are used to study gastrointestinal microbiota. It seems that germ-free and gnotobiotic animals could represent, in conjunction with in vitro methods, a helpful base for the complex study of gastrointestinal ecosystem in farm animals.
