The rumen is the "fermentation vat" for the animal, where the microbes produce volatile fatty acids, the primary source of energy for animals. The microbes thrive on different feed ingredients, including high-roughage and high-concentrate diets. Therefore, a diverse and well-balanced diet enhances the efficiency of the rumen function and, ultimately, animal performance.
How Do They Work?
Our microbes promote feed and water consumption. Wind River Microbes balance the pH [acidity level] in the rumen to help prevent acidosis by consuming harmful microorganisms and replenishing beneficial microorganisms in the digestive tract. Our microbes also help ruminants digest cellulose by boosting fiber digestion and mitigating impaction and bloat.
Wind River Microbes can be used in the following ways:
- Oral Drench
- Poured on Feed
Added to Water
