ProAgni products demonstrate that medicated feeds are not required to maintain high growth rates in healthy animals.
A more efficient production system decreases feed consumed per kg of meat, milk or wool by approximately 17%.
Data captured from ProAgni commercial validation and independent scientific studies by the University of New England (UNE) highlights:
- Greater levels of usable energy generated compared to traditional diets (>25%)
- Ruminal pH more stable and closer to desired ranges for longer compared to ionophore inclusion diets. “a stable rumen ecosystem and freedom from hindgut and foregut acidosis”
- “ProTect (ProAgni Product in trial) is a valid alternative to Monensin”.
To date, nearly half million animals have benefitted from ProAgni products.
20%+ improvement in feed conversion ratio (FCR). ProAgni FCR of 5.5:1, validated by commercial cattle feed lots against industry standards of 7-8:1.
High average daily gain of up to 2.2 kg/hd/day.
Lower morbidity and mortality in intensive feeding.
ProAgni FCR below 4:1 in commercial sheep feed lots. Typical feed lot conversion is 5:1.
High average daily gain of up to 500g/hd/day.
15% increase in lamb survivability.
ProAgni, Future Developments
Currently, existing probiotic supplements are administered as a drench to each individual animal. These products require refrigerated storage and have a short shelf-life of 3-5 days.
An opportunity exists to fundamentally change the use of probiotics in agriculture and ProAgni is working on a dry from probiotic which can be added to feed. We envision a product that safe and stable, does not require cold-chain storage and has a long shelf life.
