Phytogenics in ruminant feed

Profit boost with every mouthful

Optimize your ruminant’s performance with the power of nature

Together with feed intake, poor feed e­fficiency is one of the predominant challenges for beef and dairy producers. Did you know that less than a third of a dairy cow's protein and energy intake is converted into milk?  And less than a tenth of the protein and energy intake of a beef cow is converted into meat?  

A key strategy to support profitability of ruminant production is to positively influence the metabolism of dairy cows and beef cattle via feed intake. High-quality phytogenic solutions for ruminants are a valuable tool to encourage feed intake which can lead to enhanced nutrient utilization, resulting in optimal feed efficiency.

A limiting factor of ruminant production can be seen in the complex digestive system of ruminants: in the rumen a whole microbial ecosystem has evolved to ferment feed before nutrient absorption takes place. Phytogenics have shown that they can contribute in a variety of ways to ensure efficient, environmentally friendly and profitable ruminant production, such as: promoting feed intake, protein and energy efficiency, upgrading growth performance in beef cattle, helping optimize milk yield and quality in dairy cows, and supporting desirable concentrate intake in calves, thus maintaining normal digestion function.

Fulfill the specific needs of ruminants

Studies suggest that our phytogenic solutions help support safe and effective milk and meat production. In addition, the Performizerâ„¢ concept provides options in capturing the benefits of phytogenics to ensure high performance for all operations. Depending on the individual goals of our customers, producers can decide whether they want to maximize animal performance when adding our products to existing rations or maintain their performance level while reducing feed costs.
