Products for Beef Cattle
The professional beef producer knows that when feeding a ruminant animal, you first must address the nutritional needs of the rumen microbes. With proper nutrition, the rumen microbes will be fortified to efficiently digest forages and generate microbial protein and other important co-products beneficial to the host animal. All other nutrients that are fed must pass through the rumen under graded and in a form that can be digested in the abomasum (the true stomach) and small intestine. Without a “healthy” rumen, the forages in the ration will be poorly utilized, and the host animal will be vulnerable to multitude of health and stress challenges. This is the case whether the animal is a stock cow or a feedlot calf.
