Farm animals have a crucial role in producing sources of protein and other nutritive products for humans. However, these animals are confronting diverse challenging ailments and subsequent oxidative stress, which reduces the efficiency of production and impairs animal welfare. Bioactive compounds obtained from plants and other natural provenances have now been accredited as the crucial steppingstone against the numerous persistent diseases encountered by farm animals. Bioactive compounds possess remarkable molecular diversity and modulate numerous metabolic processes with high precedence goals, low toxicity, exhibiting high efficacy with low cost, easy availability with less or no side effects. In this context, the chapter addresses recently observed bioactive compounds for the treatment of various livestock diseases. Moreover, an attempt to consolidate information on numerous bioactive compounds has been made which brings aid in unrelenting research into potential use
