The progression of ruminant nutrition along with new insights into the rumen microbiome has led to the advancement in targeted feed services and ingredients to optimise rumen function and overall animal health.

Consistent heifer growth and performance

The diet and its content, density, balance of nutrients and palatability factors, especially with younger animals are all significant factors in heifer development.

We also do not want cattle to develop bad habits because of how we raise them. That can include rations that encourage them to learn to sort feed, or delivery programs that encourage them to eat slugs of feed, or to become competitive at the feed bunk. Or if it is a less dominant animal, not to eat only what it needs.

Consistency is important not only in animal feed formulation, but how and when the ration is presented to minimise waste. We can help establish practices and habits which can be implemented to help reduce waste in animal feeds.

As the industry’s understanding of the rumen environment improves, so too does our knowledge of how to overcome frequently seen challenges, in dairy and beef digestion. For example, the efficiency of the rumen to utilise feedstuffs can be impaired by the presence of oxygen, pH changes and changes to the microbiome. This knowledge provides producers with the opportunity to include rumen beneficial feed additives to increase rumen efficiency and overall herd profitability.

Helping the rumen to work smarter can help herd digestion, decrease emissions, and increase productivity

For most producers, and the nutritionists they work with, it is enough of a challenge to maintain herd performance and profitability whilst reducing overall feed inputs. Variable forage qualities and rising cereal prices certainly don’t help the situation. However, there’s are even bigger issues facing the agricultural industry due to

The rise of yeast in ruminant feed

Not all yeasts are created equal. Specifically developed for use in ruminants, Vistacell represents a combination of advancements in yeast technology. Vistacell ensures the highest delivery of live yeast to the rumen to maximise performance and reduce the risk of Sub-Acute Ruminal Acidosis (SARA).
