Ruminant Expertise

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.
