Controlled trial with Selko LactiBute on 6 commercial dairy farms
Trials carried out with Selko LactiBute, containing rumen protected calcium gluconate, have shown a prebiotic effect within the hindgut. This results in a change of the volatile fatty acid profile in colon, cecum and rectum. Trials carried out in different research centres have shown that this effect in the hindgut translates into an increase of milk production of dairy cows[1,2,3,4]. A trial on 6 commercial dairy farms with Selko LactiBute was carried out to confirm these results.
