BOVAMINE® DAIRY Research
Supplementing feed rations with BOVAMINE® DAIRY improves rumen health and the intestinal microbial balance for dairy cattle at all stages of development – calves and heifers, and adult cows during transition, lactation and the dry period.
Our Goal is to Help Producers Achieve Better Growth Rates, Improve Milk Production and Feed Efficiency
Research shows the probiotic actions of BOVAMINE® DAIRY reduces pathogens resulting in a stable GI tract and improved digestive function, with less energy needed to fight pathogenic bacteria. This helps dairy producers achieve better growth rates, improved milk production and feed efficiency in dairy cattle to get the most value out of feed.
BOVAMINE® DAIRY works by introducing an effective concentration of live bacteria into the rumen and the lower GI tract. The beneficial bacteria utilize lactic acid, reduce harmful bacteria, improve the integrity of the intestinal lining and support the response of the immune system.
Research trials show that feeding BOVAMINE® DAIRY daily:
- Supports lower GI and rumen development in calves.
- Increased production of volatile fatty acids in the rumen.
- Improves overall digestibility of feed.
- Contributes to a 2-3% improvement in milk production efficiency.
University and commercial research has shown how BOVAMINE® DAIRY can help producers maintain rumen health, achieve feed efficiency in dairy cattle and increase herd performance. Learn more about our research by requesting free copies of our reports.
Influence of BOVAMINE® DAIRY on Milk Production and Feed Efficiency of Lactating Dairy Cows
In this study, feeding BOVAMINE® to lactating dairy animals increased the nutrient uptake of the diet
and the conversion of feed into milk.
