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.
