Ottawa Livestock Feed Company's Trial Increases Milk Protein in Dairy Cows in China

Ottawa, Ontario-based Avivagen Inc., a livestock feed company,  has completed a trial testing its proprietary product, OxC-beta, in dairy cattle in China. The testing was conducted by COFCO Biotech of Beijing. Results demonstrated that supplementation with OxC-beta increased protein content of milk by 15.8 per cent and improved several other indicators of milk quality when compared with controls. Because antibiotics are not widely used to enhance productivity in dairy cattle during lactation, this trial has the potential to expand market opportunities of OxC-beta beyond replacement of antibiotics used as growth promoters.
