RumeNext-B Frequently Asked Questions
affects feed digestion by acting on certain rumen microbes.
RumeNext-B changes the profile of rumen-volatile fatty acids (VFA)
and changes rumen-protein digestion. It lowers rumen-acetate
level and increases propionate and butyrate levels. It
reduces the breakdown of amino acids in the rumen and, thus,
lowers rumen ammonia-nitrogen levels. The product has no
affect on rumen pH............
efficiency of production by improving feed to gain ratio and
average daily gain. In receiving ration trials1,
feeding RumeNext-B increased feed efficiency by an average of
7.1% and average daily gain by an average of 4.5% compared to
the control rations........
Care R Solution Technology for Heat-Stress
Thermal Care R is patent-pending technology developed by ADM
Research specifically for lactating dairy cows incurring heat
stress. Thermal Care R was developed after a series of basic
research and large-scale feeding studies revealed benefits for
the active ingredients. The underlying physiological effects of
heat stress were considered during research and development of
S Heat Stress Solution Technology for Swine
Thermal Care S is an innovative product developed by ADM
researchers after five years of extensive swine research.
Thermal Care S is specifically designed to help ameliorate the
negative effects of heat stress, based on ADM researchers'
understanding of the underlying physiology of heat stress.
Specific ingredients have been scientifically selected to
address different aspects of physiological changes associated
with heat stress.
The Role of Selenium Yeast in
Ruminant Feeding Programs In livestock,
selenium (Se) deficiency appears to compromise immune function and
is associated with a higher incidence of health-related problems
including mastitis, retained fetal membranes, uterine infections,
cystic ovaries, and poor conception rates.
Defining Heat Stress Heat
stress on dairy cows can be very serious. Not only does heat
stress negatively impact dry matter intake and milk production,
it also has adverse consequences on foot health, reproduction,
milk quality, and the incidence of disease.
Slick N' Clean Pit
and Lagoon Additives
One of the largest obstacles to
expansion in the livestock industry nationwide is environmental
One major concern is the odor
associated with manure management for all species.
Bacterial Inoculants can Improve the
Quality of Silages
inoculants can be useful tools to improve silage quality and
animal performance; however, they are not replacements for good
Can Silage Innoculants Stand the Test of
Silage is a forage
crop preserved by "pickling" in acid. By packing the crop
tightly into a silo and excluding oxygen, plant sugars can be
fermented into acid by anaerobic bacteria........
Forage Quality and it's effect on
The key to optimum milk production and
higher profitability can be found in forage quality. Most dairy
producers realize, to some extent, the impact that forage
quality has on milk production and income over feed cost......
