receiving program, probiotic feed additive, probiotic rumen injection
The effect of rumen injectable microbials and microbial feed additives on feedlot performance and health were monitored in a 28-day receiving trial. Average daily dry matter intake and gain and feed conversion were 9.75 lb/day, 3.78 lb/day and 2.59 lb feed/lb gain, respectively, and were not significantly different between treatments. There appeared to be no advantage to using probiotics in this trial.
