You may try Ringer lactate i/v but it does not increase the rumen dilution. If the concentrate feeding with grains is there, best is to use either live yeast that considerably scavanges the oxygen in the rumen making the rumen environment more to anaerobic. That leads to maintain acetate: propionate ratio. Alternate ius to use yeast metabolites (Diamond V XP) @ 50g/animal/day, that increases the p ...

Must complement article. But, more emphasis is given on factors of diarrhoea other than nutritional origin. In todays scenario, definitely diarrhoea is of bacterial or viral origin becuase of hygiene problem, but in most of the organized dairy farms it is due to abnormal ratio of grain: forage. It wil be nice if implications of natural products are applied to nutritional orifindiarrhoea are applie ...

This is a very studied and informative article. Every dairy farmers should go with yeast culture that to yeast metabolite to optimize the feed utilization by the dairy cows for optimum production levels. Yeast metabolites do help in reducing pH so that fibre digesting bacteria like megasphera and Selenomonas keep upper hand in rumen thereby suppressing protozoal count. In turn, maximum feed is dig ...

Naturally, methionine is acidic in nature. You are adding hot water to methionine in the mixer. But, practically speaking, have you ever checked the DCAD of water that you are adding? If the water has high levels of salts it may neutralize the things with methionine and whole practice would be futile. As well in our experience and knowledge, methionine is added to poultry rations @ 1-2 kg/MT depen ...
