Right from the start, BIOMIN has been greatly committed to helping cattle farmers run successful operations. From its own in-house research and product innovation to practical management on the farm, an interdisciplinary team of experts are instrumental to this seamless cooperation. The final aim: Successful and profitable ruminant operations.
Our ruminant team includes scientists, vets and nutritionists who, together, provide a 360º insight into everyday production. Their cooperation translates into scientifically-sound, proven and user-friendly solutions that are well adapted to practical farm management.
Modern dairy cows have a much faster passage rate of feed through the rumen, leaving less time for microorganisms to detoxify. This, combined with higher feed intake, probably means that our cows’ natural defences cannot protect them as well as often assumed.
Rearing management is often underestimated. However, it is widely recognized that calf performance today has a great impact on future milk yield. This applies to (goat) kids and lambs too.
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.
Feed efficiency is a key parameter for profitability. With high feed prices, it pays to increase feed efficiency by improving feed digestibility. Better feed digestibility means higher milk production without a negative energy balance (NEB).
Good silage management is key to profitable production and there are many important factors that influence silage quality. BIOMIN experts are trained to advise you on how best to preserve and improve your silage.
A primary condition for successful production, optimal ruminal health requires an optimum pH and high bacterial count in the rumen. Securing optimal rumen health leads to higher digestibility and feed intake.
