WEBINAR: Making sense of feed additives for gut health.

Gut damage is a challenge on many dairy farms that can lead to poor cow health and productivity. Feed additives are one tool that can be used to help prevent and overcome gut health challenges. However, there is a lot of confusion around the different types of additives, how they work, and how to best use them. As a result, additives are put into cow rations that may or may not always be the most effective or economical for individual herd needs.

In this webinar, Dr. Devan Paulus Compart, Papillon Technical Services Manager, reviews the symptoms of gut dysbiosis and how additives can be used as a tool to overcome those challenges, and finally help producers and nutritionists develop an additive strategy that will be most effective and economical for every individual herd.

  2. The primary categories of feed additives and how they work to solve gut health challenges.
  3. How to build a customized feed additive program that is effective, easy and economical.
