Stress – such as feed changes or extreme weather – impacts livestock health, appetite, immunity and production. Maintaining optimal populations of microbes in the rumen at these times is critical for ensuring healthy metabolic function and continued production.
Biostart Ruminant is a digestion enhancer that maintains rumen health and efficient function through periods of stress, by facilitating changes in rumen microbes. It improves nutrient uptake which, in turn, leads to enhanced rumen health and production.
Use Ruminant to:
- Optimise rumen health and function at times of stress
- Reduce digestive stress from feed change, heavy grain feeding, climatic stress and transport
- Improve animal production
- 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. Biostart Ruminant supports ruminant animals to transition through these changes and has a nil withholding period.
