In the breeding industry, in order to control the intestinal diseases of livestock and poultry and improve the production efficiency, a large number of antibiotics are added to the feed, which has brought serious harm to the safety of livestock products and human health. Therefore, it has become one of the urgent problems to find new antibiotics substitutes in China's breeding industry. In this study, the leaves of the Neem were collected and the extract was prepared by water extraction. The paper diffusion method and tube double dilution method were used to test the antibacterial effect of the Neem extracts on Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus in vitro. At the same time, mice were used as experimental animals to test the antibacterial effect of the Neem extract in vivo.
