A continuous culture study was conducted to evaluate the effect of two different yeast cultures on ruminal microbial metabolism. The treatments were a) control lactation ration, b) yeast culture 1 (YC1, Diamond-V XP) and c) yeast culture 2 (YC2, A-Max), both fed at an equivalent of 57 g/head per day. The results showed that both yeast culture products increased dry matter (DM) digestion, propionic acid production, and protein digestion compared with the control. Yeast culture 1 demonstrated an… CONTINUE READING
