Kemin specializes in advanced molecular science and uses this expertise to unlock discoveries and create nutritional ingredient solutions to support the health of dairy cattle. As a proud sponsor of the 2020 Cornell Nutrition Conference, we invite you to watch Dr. Michael Ballou’s presentation Nutraceuticals: An Alternative Strategy for the Use of Antimicrobials. For more valuable insights into dairy health and ruminant nutrition, please explore the literature, articles and other resources below.
Nutraceuticals are a broad group of compounds that can be classified in several ways. Some of the more common classifications are based on the mechanism of action, chemical nature or feed source. Dr. Ballou discusses the general mechanisms of action of common nutraceutical classes that are currently available to be used in ruminant animals.
Michael Ballou, Ph.D. is the professor and chair of the Department of Veterinary Sciences in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources at Texas Tech University. His research program is focused on understanding how nutrition and management influence the health of calves, heifers and transition cows.
