Several types of enzymes have been used as silage additives to improve the nutritive value of corn silage. One of them are proteases, which accelerate the fermentation process. The addition of exogenous protease enzymes at corn harvesting can increase starch degradability in the rumen by acting on the prolamin–starch matrix.
Corn grain is one of the most used energy ingredients for feeding dairy cattle. One method of storing corn grain is in its wet form (25 to 35% moisture, 28% being the optimum level). The storage of corn grain with high moisture has operational advantages ..

What nonsense it is to say that “people are our greatest asset” in companies. I always say, “Tell me who you select and I’ll tell you what you want.” And, after so many “I believe in people” or “we look for motivation, creativity, and teamwork above all..
Multi-dose automatic syringes are used in bovine tuberculosis eradication campaigns for inoculating intradermal injections of purified protein derivatives (tuberculin). One of these is the McLintock syringe, which is widely used in Europe
Flunixin meglumine is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). In the US it is the most commonly prescribed analgesic for cattle. An injectable flunixin formulation has been available in the US market labeled for intravenous treatment of dairy cattle with fever associated with bovine respiratory disease and endotoxic mastitis, and the treatment of endotoxemia associated with coliform mastitis.
Spray-dried plasma proteins are proteins with high biological value and digestibility, mainly intestinal. They differ from other animal protein sources such as blood meal in that, in addition to not containing the cell fraction, in its manufacturing process the heat treatment is milder (spray procedure), preserving the integrity of the proteins.
Dairy cows require glucose during lactation for milk synthesis and maintenance of body tissues. Ruminal degradation of soluble sugars and starches into volatile fatty acids limits the amount of glucose that can be absorbed in the small intestine. This may limit milk synthesis and reproductive performance during the lactation
