MILVERTON, ON – November 14, 2017 – A nine-month feeding trial at the Lethbridge Research Centre showed that supplementing beef cattle with Boviglo increased both average daily gain (ADG) and feed conversion. The study was evaluated in two phases: backgrounding and finishing.
During the 110-day backgrounding trial, steers that received Boviglo showed a 1.11 kg/day (2.44 lb/day) ADG, compared to the control group with .99 kg/day (2.18 lb/day) ADG. Both the Boviglo and control group started the trial at 279 kg (614 lb), but the Boviglo-supplemented steers ended up at 400 kg (880 lb), 13 kg (29 lb) more than the control group.
Feed conversion was also affected by the addition of Boviglo during backgrounding. It took 7.43 lbs of feed to create 1 lb of meat in the Boviglo group versus 8.1 lbs of feed for the control group.
In the finishing trial, Boviglo also showed significant benefits in both ADG and feed conversion. Boviglo showed a 1.65 kg/day (3.63 lb/day) ADG, .07 kg/day (.15 lb/day) higher than the control group. As well, feed conversion continued to show improvement: 6.66 for Boviglo treated steers and 6.7 for the control group
WenZhu Yang, ruminant nutrition research scientist at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Centre, Lethbridge noted that the final numbers aren’t statistically significant in scientific terms, but the 11 kg (24 lb) difference in final weights between the Boviglo and control steers would be significant for cattle feeders.
Steve Zehr, Director of Sales at Nature’s Wave, commented, “This study confirms what beef producers have reported since the product became available in 2015. In a commercial setting, where there is more stress from weaning, transport and co-mingling, Boviglo can show even more impressive results.”
Zehr continued, “With more and more restaurant chains and consumers demanding meat raised without antibiotics, Boviglo also has an excellent fit for operations that are supplying those markets.”
Boviglo is an all-natural, complete liquid vitamin and trace mineral supplement that includes lactobacillius acidophilus, one of the best probiotics for ruminants. The liquid formulation ensures quick intake and absorption, to build immunity and promote gut health.
