Maximizing Microbial Protein Synthesis in the Rumen by LactoBuffer
Rumen microbes are the major source of protein in the cow’s diet. Microbial protein supply to the duodenum should be maximized for efficient use of feed protein and energy. High producing ruminants often are fed significant concentrations of cereal grains and fat in their diets. Increasing starch in the diet decreases ruminal pH, which often decreases extent of ruminal fiber digestion and also may decrease efficiency of microbial protein synthesis because of energy-spilling reactions. The amount of microbial protein flowing to the intestines depends on the rumen pH. LactoBuffer has three strategies to control of pH in the rumen and it can help to your dairy cows to synthesis more microbial protein.
