About Animal Health
There are more than 142 million cattle, 60 million hogs, 8 billion chickens and 270 million turkeys produced in the U.S. alone.
Livestock producers are continually looking for strategies to improve feed-to-weight ratios, the amount of feed necessary to add one pound to the animal and minimize the effect of environmental conditions associated with confined livestock operations.
Indiscriminate use of antibiotics has caused the European community to ban non-therapeutic use of antibiotics in livestock for nearly 30 years. However, over the past few decades nearly half of the antibiotics produced in the U.S. are used for supplementation for chickens, turkeys and swine. The use of sub-acute levels of antibiotics in animal production is leading us to a public health crisis of enormous proportions. Many bacteria that cause life-threatening diseases in humans are now becoming resistant to our arsenal of antibiotic compounds and most scientists attribute the practice of using antibiotics in animal production as the major cause.
It is widely accepted that DFMs and lactic acid bacteria (LAB) products can promote livestock health. The problem is in the use of certain bacterial species such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria as feed additives, because they do not work on a large scale due to difficulty in administration, excessive cost and inconsistent results. Also, because LAB are inherently fragile organisms that must be refrigerated, they cannot be directly or easily introduced into livestock production or added to feed components.
Increasingly more livestock producers are realizing a more viable solution and administering Ganeden’s specifically formulated species of lactic acid producing Bacillus coagulans directly in animal feed.
