MSE MAX microbial released for automated feedlots

Progressive Cattleman Editor David Cooper Published on 31 January 2011

Natur’s Way Inc. has released a direct-fed microbial (DFM) specifically designed for automated feedlot systems using micro-machines. Each 0.5-gram dose of MSE MAX is guaranteed to deliver 5.4 billion viable microorganisms (CFU) per head per day. The convenient seven-pound jugs contain 6,356 doses and can be safely frozen to prolong viability.

Scientific literature has suggested the beneficial microbes in DFM and probiotics compete with opportunistic pathogens for nutrients and living space. They temporarily take the place of indigenous beneficial microorganisms that have perished due to animal stress.

These studies also suggest that maintenance of a strong beneficial microbial population, whether indigenous or transitory, can have a protective effect during times of stress.

University research has demonstrated that cattle fed MSE had significantly improved performance (average daily gain, feed efficiency, final weight, carcass weight, yield and ribeye area) compared to those that were conventionally fed. It was also shown that MSE reduced E. coli prevalence by 80 percent within the first two weeks.  end_mark
