Probiotic Supplements for Your Animals Well-being
A balanced diet containing probiotics and other high-quality nutrients can help promote digestive health in the animals you raise for meat and milk. Probiotic support for livestock is important for a healthy digestive tract.
What Probiotics Can Do for Your Livestock
Digestion is an important part of ruminant health, as this is where the absorption of most nutrients occurs. By having a healthy digestive tract, your livestock can maximize their gains, their milk production and overall well-being.
Probiotics help support eubiosis in your livestock. Eubiosis is a healthy and balanced state marked by high diversity and abundance of microbial populations in the gut.
Thus probiotics play an important role in helping maintain normal digestive health and since over 70% of the immune system is in or around the gut, eubiosis helps support a healthy immune system too. This is why probiotic support for livestock is key.
Selecting Probiotics For My Livestock – What To Look For
When looking at probiotic supplementation it is important to consider the following:
- Inclusion of multiple different types of probiotics to provide support through the GI tract.
- The number of colony forming units per gram (listed in the guaranteed analysis).
- Are the probiotics micro-encapsulated to protect them in the container while on the shelf and more importantly, to protect them from stomach acid and bile so they reach the small intestine where they can do their job?
If your animals are enjoying healthy intestinal processes and hindgut health, LIRA GOLD DFM (direct fed microbials) supplements can help maintain these healthy states. Our supplements are formulated and sourced to provide all three categories above to help promote homeostasis throughout their lifetime of productivity.
