Alltech showcases latest cattle research at 2016 JAM

Farm Forum

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Global animal health and nutrition leader Alltech will feature five oral abstracts and five poster presentations highlighting the most recent ruminant research at the Joint Annual Meeting (JAM) in Salt Lake City, Utah, July 19–23.

JAM is a collaborative meeting hosted by the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS), the American Dairy Science Association (ADSA), the Western Section of the American Society of Animal Science (WSASAS) and the Canadian Society of Animal Science (CSAS).

“This year’s research shines a light on the exploration we are uncovering through academia partnership as well as through real-time on-farm data collected by our key acquisitions,” said Dr. Karl Dawson, vice president and chief scientific officer at Alltech. “Our global research team is focused on tackling the latest industry issues by incorporating new technologies into nutrition programs and helping our customers stay profitable in new and emerging markets. We are excited to share the latest data at JAM.”

Abstracts to be shared at JAM’s oral session:

• Effects of the EPNIX beef program on feedlot performance in diets containing no Monensin or Tylosin

• Potential for live yeast culture to enhance nitrate mitigation of methanogenesis in Jersey dairy cattle

• Effect of prenatal and lactating cow trace mineral source on Angus and Brangus calf acute phase protein response to a weaning stressor

• Effect of pre- and postnatal trace mineral (TM) source on Angus and Brangus heifer growth and body composition

• Effect of pre- and postnatal trace mineral (TM) source on Angus and Brangus heifer growth and reproductive performance

Posters to be presented at JAM:

• Effect of imprinted polymer based ergot-alkaloid adsorbent on in vitro ruminal fermentation

• Effects of corn silage levels on methane emissions and blood metabolite concentrations of drying-off Xinong Saanen dairy goats

• Effect of total replacement of trace minerals with Bioplex proteinated minerals on the health and performance of light weight, high risk feedlot cattle

• Performance and health of calves pre- and post-weaning when fed milk replacer supplemented with algae

• Ruminal metabolism of fatty acids from fish oil or algae in steers fed a finishing diet
