MS Biotec announces the launch of LactiproFLX with Mega e, an innovation 10 years in the making. LactiproFLX enables beef and dairy producers to maintain digestive health in cattle and improve profitability. Today, beef and dairy producers need every competitive advantage. LactiproFLX provides a unique and powerful way to help maintain the digestive health of cattle.
LactiproFLX harnesses the power of Mega e, a naturally occurring rumen-native bacteria that is a superior lactic acid utilizer. LactiproFLX places a large number of Mega e directly into the rumen where it immediately begins targeting lactic acid. Lactic acid can build up and have dangerous effects on cattle as they transition to higher-energy diets or experience stress. LactiproFLX can be used for feedlot cattle, dairy and beef cows, and calves at key moments of diet transition and stress.
“Since we founded MS Biotec in 2010, our scientists have been researching the unique properties of Mega e,”explains CEO Leander van der Walt. “As we celebrate our 10th year in business, we’re thrilled to bring this innovative new product to market.”
LactiproFLX is available in 3 formulations:
LactiproFLX Dairy: For use in dairy and beef cows
Ease fresh cow transition to higher-starch diet; support rumen health in hospital cows returning to the production herd
Reduce risk of grain overload in beef cows grazing downed corn or crop residue
LactiproFLX Calf: Stimulate healthy rumen development in young calves
“LactiproFLX is a true breakthrough in the field,” van der Walt says. “We have evolved our original application of a high-volume drench with a 14-day shelf life to a convenient, easy-to-use capsule containing viable anaerobic bacteria with stability for months.”
