Probios lists 2 species for a total bacteria (3 strains of S. Faecium) at 2.5 billion CFU, and total Saccharomyces cerevisiae at 1.0 billion CFU, for a total of 3.5 billion viable microorganisms.

 

Probiotics/DFM effectiveness is dependent on several factors:

 

 

The Nitty Gritty

 

Product

Total CFU/head/day

“Heavy Hitters”

Guaranteed analysis/each

Probios Precise

3.5 Billion

2

Yes

MSE MAX

5.4 Billion

4

Yes

 

 

 

 

 

MSE MAX has been shown to promote faster, more efficient growth in finishing cattle, and has also been shown to significantly reduce shedding of E. coli 0157:H7 (decreased by 80% in the first 15 days).

 

Natur’s Way, Inc. has been producing probiotics/DFM for the cattle industry since 1970. Summaries of cattle research can be seen at http://naturs-way.com.
