Beef Abate Micro
Managing hot weather stress
Heat-stressed cattle need extra energy, but heat stress minimizes feed intake and nutrient absorption. When heat stress strikes, cattle try to expel body heat by panting, moving blood away from the gut toward the extremities, and reducing feed intake, leading to a cascade of negative impacts including rumen upset, loss of lower gut integrity, and poor nutrient absorption. Beef Abate Micro feed additive supports cattle performance despite the heat with a select combination of ingredients that deliver greater benefits than if they were fed individually.
Research at a Nebraska feedlot tested the efficacy of Beef Abate1.
Cattle fed Beef Abate maintained 83% of their initial intake during the heat event compared to control cattle, which experienced a 27% reduction in intake.
