Direct-fed Microbials (DFM) Market Overview :

Direct Fed Microbial (DFM) involves the feeding of beneficial microbes to dairy cattle when they are under periods of stress i.e. ration changes, disease, environmental & production challenges. DFM as a category include traditional probiotics, non-viable bacterial, fungal and end products of bacterial. Some of these products comprise cultures that utilize a mechanism of action similar to competitive exclusion cultures. To maintain normal health and production, DFMs can produce organic acids i.e. lactic, acetic or butyric, which lower intestinal pH and constrain growth of potential pathogens like salmonella and E. coli. Beneficial effects particularly in cattle, pigs and poultry, foodborne pathogen reduction, including improved general health, more efficient food utilization, faster growth rate, and increased milk & egg production. DFM may have an impact on the safe response, overall health, and performance of livestock.
