Tips on How to Improve Cattle Performance

30 May 2020

ICC Brazil chose four tips that will make a difference in the routine of farmers.

The results of agricultural activities and animal performance rely on nutrition and appropriate management techniques. Whether for dairy or beef cattle, heavy work, wool or eggs, an energetic supplementation, protein, or mineral is needed.

Genetic predisposition directly influences nutritional planning when developing a balanced diet, which increases the productivity and reproductive performance of farm animals. ICC Brazil, a company pioneering the production of innovative solutions for yeast-based animal nutrition, has defined four factors to help improve animal performance.

  • Providing a specific feed for each phase;
  • Observing nutritional deficiencies and needs;
  • Taking care of food availability;
  • Paying attention to climate change, room temperature, ventilation, and hydration.

Also, farmers have been looking for protein value in alternative and natural sources to form a balanced diet. RumenYeast, an ICC Brazil product, is a natural additive that can be included in the animals’ diet, as well as adding nutritional value and significantly improving the health of ruminants. The product is composed of fermentation metabolites, providing ideal nutrition for the rumen microbiota, intestinal health, and strength for the immune system. It maintains the pH and stimulates cellulolytic bacteria, thus improving rumen conditions.
