It is important that calves stay healthy. Beef calves are often raised together, which increases disease pressure and the risk of infections spreading. Improving milk and solid feed intake, alongside practices that improve intestinal health, result in fewer incidences of diarrhea, reduced medication cost, higher average daily gain and improved feed efficiency among the herd. Professional calf raising farms use Biotronic® Top3 and Digestarom® prior to weaning.
Good quality feed is a must for high beef output. Only silage of excellent quality should be included in the diet, and this quality can be improved with Biomin® BioStabil.
Mycotoxins frequently occur even without clinical signs, hence the need to implement a mycotoxin risk management strategy. Critical to this strategy is the incorporation of the Mycofix® line, as it directly counteracts the negative effects of mycotoxins.
Higher feed intake correlates with improved beef production. Digestarom® Beef improves feed intake and ultimately, average daily gain.
Central to cattle health is a well-functioning rumen. High average daily gain hinges upon efficient digestion and the ruminal microflora. A novel autolysed yeast Levabon® Rumen E acts as prebiotic in the rumen which increases digestibility and feed efficiency.
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 Biotronic® product line is a combination of selected blends of organic and inorganic acids and their salts, working to improve feed and water hygiene, through the reduction of pH and buffer capacity, and the control of gram negative bacteria such as Salmonella sp. and E. coli. Biotronic® is suitable for use in poultry, pig, calf and fish feed.
Levabon® Rumen E
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.
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 as well as companion animal 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.
