Dairy management: It's all in the feed
Feed and protein efficiency are amongst daily topic in dairy farmers. And rightly so, because optimum feeding represents an important factor in this sector of animal production. The best thing you can do is get support from nature. Plant based supplements support feed efficiency in a natural, though proven way, whilst contributing to a reduction of…
Plant extracts can mitigate methane emissions
Agriculture is the third largest contributor when it comes to the release of GHGs to the atmosphere. To counteract, it is necessary to tackle the problem at the roots. Once again, nutritional expertise and optimum feeding management step into the spotlight, especially in ruminants – and support comes from mother nature itself: That´s talk of…
Feed efficiency: Finding ways to improve profitability
Dairy farmers are continually striving to find ways to improve profitability, as they are permanently facing challenges like changes in feed and milk prices. High quality phytogenics, supplemented to animals´ rations, have shown to support feed efficiency in a natural though proven way. Thus increasing farms profitability whilst contributing to…
Dietary strategies protecting heat-stressed farm animals against increased susceptibility to inflammatory diseases
Under heat stress, animals alter their behaviour and physiology in order to dispose of heat and to decrease body temperature. They spend less time feeding and moving, while spending more time on resting, drinking and panting. Read in this article how phytogenics can support animals during heat-stress situations.
Milling and Grain: Its all about protein, isn’t it?
Ruminants such as dairy cows accomplish true wonders, as they can transform low-quality protein in roughage and concentrates into the high-quality protein found in milk and meat. Read in this article how phytogenics make a substantial contribution in this context.
Protein efficiency in dairy cows: a promising future for phytogenics
In dairy milk production attention is mostly concentrated on efficiency. On the one hand there is talk of efficiency of animal production and on the other, there is talk about feed efficiency. Phytogenic feed additives have been able to substantially up-value ruminant rations for years – and their future is promising.
