Effects of BiOWiSH® on Methane Production and Digestibility

New Research Study Shows How BiOWiSH® Direct Fed Microbials Affect Beef Cattle Intake, Digestibility, and Methane Production

Enteric methane, which is produced through fermentation in the digestive system, represents a major loss of energy consumed by ruminants, as well as a significant input of greenhouse gas emissions sourced from agricultural sectors. The introduction of beneficial microbial populations to the rumen through direct-fed microbials is hypothesized to reduce methane production and promote non-methanogenic microorganisms, thereby enhancing rumen efficiency. The potential to mitigate methane production in beef cattle consuming an energy-dense, dairy transition diet was investigated for a commercial probiotic.
