Phibro Animal Health Corp. announced its new nutritional specialty product, OmniGen Pro, may increase dairy profit potential by supporting immune competence, optimizing rumen health and helping cows be and stay healthy.
Phibro said OmniGen Pro nutritional specialty product includes a combination of all-natural silicates and yeast components, scientifically evaluated and selected by Phibro for specific biological activity that supports immune competence. It also includes functional metabolites and essential precursors, created from exclusive fermentation technologies to support ruminal and intestinal microbiomes.
Improving the overall health of dairy cows can mean improved dairy profitability through increased income and reduced costs, Phibro said, noting that including OmniGen Pro in dairy cow rations supports immune competence, which can lead to fewer infectious and metabolic diseases in the herd.
“In the new dairy normal, it’s especially critical to optimize cow productivity,” said Paulo Rezende Napier, marketing director, Phibro Animal Health. “Adding OmniGen Pro to a dairy cow’s diet helps maintain immune competency, with expected improvement in nutrient metabolism through optimal ruminal fermentation and by maintaining gastrointestinal tract integrity.”
The company added that incorporating OmniGen Pro into dairy cows’ diets can help maintain immune competency, which can improve profitability by helping producers:
* Increase milk and component yield per cow;
* Improve milk value and increase percentage of fat and protein;
* Decrease discarded milk;
* Reduce somatic cell counts;
* Reduce medicine, labor and veterinary costs and other treatment expenses;
* Reduce reproductive expenses (hormones, semen, labor and veterinary), and
* Reduce replacement costs associated with involuntary culls.
