What are the benefits of using microbz for your livestock?

Effective microorganisms have many benefits for livestock

These include rearing healthier, happier animals, reducing vet bills and getting ahead of antimicrobial resistance.

If you want happier, healthier animals, try microbz.

Other ways to use microbz on your farm

As well as the products that we sell we can also advise you about how you can use microbz in other areas of your agriculture.

Here are some ways microbes are used in Europe to support healthy agriculture.

microbz help clean your barn

The use of medication and disinfectants negatively affects the microbial community in animals’ environment. 

A lack of beneficial microbes in this environment encourages pathogens to multiply which can lead to the growth of pathogens and disease. 

Spraying regularly with our effective microorganisms suppresses the growth of putrefying bacteria.

The use of effective microbes in the stables and barns promotes the spread of beneficial microbes and prevents decay which is responsible for unpleasant smells. Organic acids in our microbial cultures neutralise and prevent gas emissions such as ammonia and nitrous oxide. An environment is created where flies can not multiply, meaning less stress to the animals and workers.

Benefits

  • neutralisation of smells
  • less need for antibiotics and disinfectants
  • reduced stress on livestock
  • increased productivity

microbz make silage better

Applying effective microbes to silage reduces pathogenic bacteria, harmful moulds and fungal development. 

They work to improve aerobic stability and so secondary fermentation is prevented. Substances are produced in the processes promoted by effective microbes that inhibit heating in the silage.

Effective microbes help release antioxidants and vitamins meaning the final silage is nutrient rich and high in energy. They also act as a preservative enabling silage to be stored for longer. Lactic acid bacteria, which is contained in the effective microbes, ferment sugars into lactic acid causing the pH to reduce to an optimal level which results in a more stable, less perishable silage.

The benefits

  • increased rate of grass fermentation
  • reduced fungal infection
  • lower mycotoxin levels
  • decreased dust
  • increased durability of silage

microbz can help your pigs

Intensive animal production systems can create issues of animal disease and smells due to manure accumulation. Microbes can reduce health issues and smells and improve feed conversion efficiency. 

Using microbes makes it possible to interrupt chains of infection between animals. This is done by a combination of feeding optimisation, hygienic environments and bedding and manure preparation.Treatment can reduce diarrhoea and other digestive tract related illness, weight loss, and fungus.

The benefits

  • ingested microbes support digestion and immunity
  • increased nutrient absorption lead to bigger weights
  • improved microbial quality of manure
  • enhanced animal wellbeing and condition
  • better environments and less odours
  • reduction in disease

Antibiotic-free feeding is possible without increased losses

microbz can support your chickens

Just like humans, birds need certain bacteria such as Lacto­bacilli and Bifidobacteria for intestinal development. The introduction of effective microbes to poultry and their environment has a multitude of benefits. 

Treatment can reduce diarrhoea and other digestive tract related illness, weight loss, feather condition, beak and claw condition and fungal skin diseases. The chicken’s intestinal flora is supported with the ingestion of effective microorganisms. This increases protein availability from the feed.

The benefits

  • supports digestion and immune function
  • increased nutrient absorption enhances weight
  • improved microbial quality of manure
  • better condition and healthy claws and beaks
  • reduced odours
  • reduction in disease

microbz can support your cows

High quality basic feed is a prerequisite for stable animal health. 

Through consistent slurry processing and grassland care the quality of basic feed can be increased. Effective microbes used in silage or hay making also has a number of advantages. 

Having a balanced gastrointestinal flora in an animal supports good digestion and a strong, healthy immune system. Our product encourages a balanced microbial community in the gut and supports increased appetite. Infections like influenza and diarrheal diseases are much less common. Coat and hoof conditions are increased and fungal skin conditions are reduced.

Using effective microbes on pasture can increase clover production and reduce fertiliser inputs whilst maintaining pasture production levels and reducing nitrogen leaching.

The benefits

  • supports digestion and immune function
  • increased nutrient absorption enhances weight
  • beneficial gut flora create enzymes and vitamins
  • improved microbial quality of manure
  • better condition and healthy claws and beaks
  • reduced odours
  • reduction in disease
  • indirect increase in milk yield due to better breakdown of ruminant matter
