The ruminant digestive system is as complex as it is important to beef production. Optimal gut health in cattle helps improve performance, prevent leaky gut and mitigate stress. CLOSTAT® from Kemin offers proven protection against pathogens including Clostridia, Salmonella and Escherichia coli, resulting in better overall ruminant gut health.
A healthy gastrointestinal (GI) tract in beef cattle:
See how CLOSTAT helps keep your herd healthy.
Leaky gut occurs when a compromised GI tract lining allows harmful substances to be absorbed into the bloodstream, resulting in intestinal inflammation.
8 stressors impacting gut health in cattle
9 things to consider when choosing a microbial
Not all probiotic products are active microbials, and not all active microbials are the same. When choosing a microbial for improved gut health in cattle, consider the following factors:
CLOSTAT contains a proprietary, patented strain of Bacillus subtilis PB6. Kemin selected B. subtilis PB6 - a unique, naturally occurring and spore-forming probiotic - because it helps maintain the balance of microflora in the GI tract in an array of animals, including beef cattle. The B. subtilis PB6 in CLOSTAT has been shown to have multiple modes of action:
B. subtilis PB6 has been found to secrete multiple biocidal proteins that are inhibitory towards certain strains of pathogenic bacteria.
Reduced gut inflammation
B. subtilis PB6 has been found to secrete cyclic lipopeptides surfactins through normal metabolism, which inhibit PLA2.
Quorum quenching (QQ)
B. subtilis PB6 has been found to prevent the initiation of infection, colonization and disease progression, known as quorum sensing, by producing a lipopeptide called fengycin.
