Feeding rumen protected potassium gluconate increases milk production on two Polish farms
Feeding Selko LactiBute reduces systemic inflammation as a result of “leaky gut”
The active component of Selko LactiBute for dairy cows is rumen protected calcium gluconate. Calcium gluconate acts as a prebiotic inducing a shift of the microflora. This results in an increase of butyrate and other volatile fatty acids in the hindgut, which improves gut barrier function and reduces the risk of “leaky gut”. Trials carried out in various research farms and several commercial farms have shown that milk production of dairy cows will increase as a result of feeding Selko LactiBute1,2,3,4. Purpose of the current trial5 was to test Selko LactiBute in two Polish farms.
