Milk production per lactation and in the total lifespan of a dairy cow is the most decisive factor for overall farm profitability. Lactation depends on many different factors.
Raising high yielding cows begins with calf rearing best practices that prioritize the development of rumen capacity and the formation of papillae.
Also essential for high milk yields are good quality feed. Silage added to the diet must be of excellent quality, and this quality can be improved with Biomin® BioStabil.
Mycotoxins occur frequently and sometimes without showing any clinical signs. This underscores the need to implement mycotoxin risk management strategies. Critical in this strategy is the use of the Mycofix® line, as it directly counteracts the negative effects of mycotoxins.
Modern dairy cows have superior milk yield potential. However, inadequate feed intake limits this genetic potential. With Digestarom®, feed intake is improved and higher milk yields can be achieved.
Milk production depends on rumen health. Improving ruminal flora and digestion improves milk yield. A novel autolysed yeast such as Levabon® Rumen E is specifically targeted towards improved ruminal function.
The Mycofix® product line represents specially developed feed additives that protect animal health by deactivating mycotoxins found in contaminated feed. Mycofix® is suitable for use in poultry, pig and ruminant feed as well as fish and shrimp diets.
The Biomin® BioStabil product line is a formulation of selected lactic acid bacteria for silage inoculation. These bacteria produce the metabolites lactic acid and acetic acid in a balanced ratio for an improved fermentation process and longer aerobic stability. The drop in pH value and direct effects of acetic acid inhibit unwanted microbes in favor of improved feed quality.
Digestarom® is a specifically formulated phytogenic product designed to support digestion and feed efficiency by combining unique flavoring properties with biologically active properties. Digestarom® is suitable for use in poultry, pig, ruminant, fish and shrimp feed.
Levabon® Rumen E is a spray-dried, autolyzed yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) product, produced by an internal process technology for standardized autolytic degradation of the yeast cell. This yeast product is rich in bioactive ingredients and nutrients such as nucleotides, essential amino acids, peptides, cell wall carbohydrates and B vitamins.
