Stockmans Choice Probiotics for Cattle & Calves, Sheep & Lambs, Goats & Kids.

How does Stockmans Choice* probiotics work in cattle and ruminants?

Probiotics stimulate the rumen by supplying nutrients to rumen bacteria thus producting enzymes.  These enzymes catalyze rumen fermentation assisting fiber digestion and feed utilization.  Stockmans Choice* is a concentrated source of live yeast culture and enzymes to be used as an feed additive.  These enzymes catalyze fermentation assisting fibre digestion and feed utilization.  Probiotics also produce nutrients which feed and stimulate digestive bacteria in the gut.  The unique combination of enzymes in Stockmans Choice* stimulates appetite and helps ensure a consistent population of natural acid bacteria, and, is recognized source of B-vitamins, minerals and other nutritional factors.  Reliable and stable protease enzymes and bacillus bacteria are key ingredients in our probiotic products, and used to ensure quick delivery of digestive aids to the gut with predictable results.

The benefits of using Stockmans Choice* for BEEF CATTLE:

  • Stimulates and maintains optimum rumen fermentation
  • Stimulates natural digestive bacteria for improved digestibiltiy of feed conversion
  • Lowers mortality rates of newborn calves
  • Lowers mortality rates of incoming cattle in a feedlot finishing program

How do Stockmans Choice* probiotics work in CALVES & LAMBS:

Calves are born with a bacteria-free gut. It is necessary to immediately establish lactobacilli populations shortly after birth; otherwise, pathogenic organisms can populate the rumen and cause production problems. The use of Stockmans Choice* during stressful periods will maintain a favourable microbial balance in the rumen.  The microbial balance in the rumen is upset during times of stress by decreasing lactobacilli levels and increasing pathogenic bacteria levels.  This results in morbidity and mortality problems.  It is important in times of stress to ensure the delicate balance of the calf’s intestinal tract is kept undisturbed.

The benefits of using Stockmans Choice* for calves:

  • Maintains microbial balance in the rumen
  • Improves feed intake.
  • Improves weight gain
  • Improves feed efficency
  • Assits digestion and keeps calves “on-feed”

The benefits of using Stockmans Choice* for sheep:

  • Stimulates and maintains optimum rumen fermentation
  • Stimulates natural digestive bacteria for improved digestibility and feed conversion
  • Lowers mortality rates of newborn lambs
  • Lowers mortality rates of incoming lambs in a feedlot finishing program
  • Improves milk production in the lactating ewe

The benefits of using Stockmans Choice* for Lambs & Kids:

  • Maintains microbial balance in the rumen
  • Improves feed intake
  • Improves weight gain
  • Improves feed efficciency
  • Assists digestion and keeps lambs “on-feed”
  • Strengthens the immune system

How does Stockmans Choice* probiotics work in kids?

Kids are born with a developing and bacteria-free single-stomached digestive system.  It is necessary to immediately establish lactobacilli populations shortly after birth; otherwise pathogenic organisms can populate the gut and cause digestive problems.  As the rumen becomes active and starts to enlarge the need for healthy and reliable micro-organisms increases.  The use of probiotics to support this critical development is vital in maintaining a favourable microbial balance in the digestive system.  It is also important in times of stress to ensure the delicate balance of the kid’s intestinal tract is kept undisturbed; and theat conditions are ideal for the stomach compartments to grow, change and prepare for a roughage diets as the rumen develops.  The Kid Rumen is 30% of Stomach and the Adult Rumen is 80% of Stomach.
