Dairy farmers in Argentina now have access to a technology proven to benefit gut health and productivity of their herds. Probiotics are good bacteria, well known for their beneficial effects in humans and animals. However, up to this point this technology has not been widely available to dairy farmers, due to the challenge of keeping the bacteria alive in different types of feed.
Chr. Hansen, a leading 147-year-old global bioscience company, now puts a new product into the Argentinian market. Bovacillus™ is a probiotic consisting of two strains of different species of Bacilli – Bacillus licheniformis and Bacillus subtilis isolated from nature. Bovacillus™ is a special type of probiotic because Bacillus spores survive harsh conditions during feed production, preparation and within the gastrointestinal tract.
“Both strains of Bacilli were selected based on their capacity to produce high quantities of digestive enzymes. Bacillus organisms have been used as probiotics for farm animals for several years, where they have supported performance and health. We’re excited to offer our customers this new product range,” says Dr. Oscar Queiroz, global product manager, Dairy & Beef Cattle Probiotics, Animal Health, Chr. Hansen.
The ability to form spores is what gives Bacilli their ability to survive and perpetuate under sub optimal conditions. Thanks to its diversified and synergistic modes of action, Bovacillus™ is an effective choice to support the health and performance of cattle. The resilience and versatility of Bovacillus™ allows this effective probiotic to be used in a broad array of applications for cattle:
- Mineral mix
- Mash feed
- Pellets and cubes
- Milk replacers
- Pasteurized milk
- Complete feed
- Blocks and tubs
“At Chr. Hansen we are uniquely positioned to drive positive change through microbial solutions. We have worked almost 150 years to enable sustainable agriculture, and as we continue to unlock the power of good bacteria to respond to worldwide challenges such as the overuse of antibiotics and pesticides, we are matching customer needs and global trends. In this way we put action behind our purpose, to grow a better world. Naturally,” concludes Dr. Leandro Mohamad, head of sales Argentina, Animal Health, Chr. Hansen.
