Rumen Health & Longevity

Holstein cow eating

A primary condition for successful production, optimal ruminal health requires an optimum pH and high bacterial count in the rumen. Indicators of optimal rumen health are a physiological ruminal pH (pH 5.8-6.8) and high commensal bacteria count that result in high microbial protein production. Securing optimal rumen health leads to higher digestibility and feed intake.

The first step towards improving ruminal health is to control mycotoxins that can affect the ruminal population. Mycotoxins occur frequently even if no clinical signs are detected. This underscores the need to implement mycotoxin risk management strategies. Critical in this strategy is the use of the Mycofix® line, as it will directly counteract the negative effects of mycotoxins.

The next step in improving rumen health is to develop the ruminal flora. A novel autolysed yeast, Levabon® Rumen E directly influences the rumen microflora and ruminal health.

Improved ruminal health and fermentations will be reflected not just in improved milk yield, but also in better general health and reproduction, with a positive impact on the cow’s lifespan and productivity.
