Stress, such as feed changes or extreme weather, impacts livestock health, appetite, immunity and milk production. Maintaining populations of microbes in the rumen at these times is critical for ensuring healthy metabolic function and milk production.
BioStart LactoPlus is a digestive enhancer developed specifically for lactating dairy cows, supporting nutrient uptake, milk production and general animal well-being through periods of stress.
Use LactoPlus to:
- Increase digestive efficiency
- Improve nutrient conversion
- Increase cow milk production
- Reduce feed change stress
- Improve animal well-being
A healthy rumen has billions of microbes that efficiently convert feed into nutrients, buffering the animal against illness and loss of condition. The type of microbes in the rumen needed to efficiently breakdown feed depends on diet and can change rapidly when feed changes.
Using LactoPlus in the first 20 weeks of lactating supports animal resilience through change – trials showed that LactoPlus improved milk production on commercial dairy farms in Southland.
LactoPlus has a nil withholding period.
