Preventing lactic acidosis in feedlot cattle.
The transition from a high fibre diet to a high grain diet is the most vulnerable time for feedlot cattle to lactic acidosis.
The MBS induction ration is meant to facilitate this transition allowing the rumen bacteria to gradually change profile to accommodate the higher grain ration.
Lactobacilli spp. and Bifidobacteria are some of the most important microbes that need to increase in population to digest the lactic acid and control lactic acidosis.
Dynavyte MicroBiome Support contains Bacillus subtilis ‘Natto’ at a new improved concentration greater than 1 x 10⁸/litre. Scientific research has shown that Bacillus subtilis ‘Natto’ promotes the growth of Lactobacilli spp. and Bifidobacteria.
The recommended inclusion rate for the ration is 10 litres per tonne of feed as fed.
This same inclusion rate is recommended for the final 3 days in the feedlot prior to transportation. Dynavyte MicroBiome Support may assist with the stress and digestive upsets associated with the transportation away from the feedlot.
