What is Cattlemace®?
Cattlemace® is a proprietary blend of Aspergillus oryzae 458, Bacillus subtilis 681 and Trichoderma viride 007 fermentation products for normal
fiber, starch, and other nutrient digestion in beef applications. Cattlemace® has shown effectiveness in cattle on pasture and in feedyard settings and
exhibits normal weight gain, performance and feed efficiency. The reports of fiber digestion are also known to help in maintaining normal body
temperatures during periods of heat stress. It has also been shown to be effective in other ruminant species such as sheep and goats.
The use of microbial-based feed additives, which include cultures of specific organisms, metabolic by-products and enzymes to alter rumen
fermentation and improve animal performance have increased dramatically in recent years. This is partly in response to a desire for more “natural”
solutions and a move from additives that are antibiotic in nature. A second driving factor is an increased need to find tools which can enhance feed
efficiencies as a result of ever increasing feed costs. Products of this nature have been shown to improve the digestibility of various nutrients including
fiber components, proteins, and fats in both forages and feed grains.
The use of microbial fermentation products of Aspergillus oryzae, Bacillus subtilis and Trichoderma viride and their associated metabolic products and
enzymes in ruminant feeds have been shown to help maintain both starch and fiber digestibility. This may contribute in energy availability to the
animal and a subsequent normal weight gain, milk production and feed efficiency.
Nutrient availability of the animal’s diet is largely associated with the availability of critical digestive enzymes which facilitate the breakdown of feed and
forage components and the basic molecular structures. The animal’s ability to digest and utilize a given feed or forage is reflected by its performance in
terms of weight gain, milk production, reproduction and so on. Microbial Fermentation Products (MFP) such as Aspergillus oryzae, Trichoderma
viride and Bacillus subtilis include enzymes such as cellulase and amylase which are known to help maintain the digestive process. The MFP
combination in Cattlemace® has proven benefits which include:
• Utilization of high fiber ingredients and by-products.
• Competitive environment in the small intestine for undesirable organisms.
• Help to maintain microbial balance in the rumen.
• Help to maintain the overall digestive system environment.
