Each podcast contains highlights of ruminant research sponsored by Adisseo and presented during the 2021 virtual American Dairy Science Association (ADSA) Annual Meeting.
Highlights include what was researched and why, a brief summary of the findings, the conclusions drawn, and insights on how best to apply the results.
Mycotoxins reduce rumen performance, according to University of New Hampshire research. Mycotoxin deactivators increase the production of beneficial metabolites and, thus, increase cow health and performance.
The effects of the mycotoxin deactivator UNIKE® Plus was investigated on rumen parameters in cows fed mycotoxin-contaminated dried distillers grains. While mycotoxin impaired rumen volatile fatty acid production and the microbial population, these parameters were restored by the mycotoxin deactivator, resulting in a healthier rumen..

Supplemental methionine modulated liver protein abundance and enzyme activity, stabilizing metabolism and making cows less susceptible to the metabolic disruptions caused by heat stress.
