The microbiome
is key to cattle productivity and sustainability.


The Cattle Microbiome

Inside the cattle gut is a collection of microorganisms called the microbiome. The microbiome digests the fiber-rich feed and generates energy for the cattle. A poorly functioning microbiome generates methane gas, leading to bloat and poor feed conversion ratio.


Our Approach

Using cutting-edge CRISPR technology, Pando engineers the microbiome to unlock hidden cattle performance. Our solutions are cost effective, scalable and environmentally friendly.
