Abstract

Direct fed microorganisms (DFM) can be fed to livestock during stressful conditions viz. production stress, environmental stress, sudden change in feed or disease. These DFM maintain anaerobic environment in rumen, stabilize ruminal pH, increase ruminal microbial activity and digestibility, increase feed efficiency, decrease methane emission, provide growth factors, increased milk yield and protein, increase digestibility, reduce fecal shedding of pathogens, enhance humoral immunity. In calves, DFM can alter intestinal environment and reduce chances of indigestion, diarrhoea and weight loss affecting overall growth of calves. The use of DFM can benefit overall growth and production in dairy animals.
