The microbiome in every cow is different, yet all are fed the same TMR and expected to perform the same.
The branded strains of Smartbacteria, found only in the P-One Program, optimize energy transport through efficient carbohydrate metabolism.
This stabilizes and maintains rumen pH, making the P-One Program - the 1st Ingredient.
Lactic Acid Bacteria (minimum)....80 billion cfu/pound (176.6 million cfu/gram)
(Pediococcus pentosaceus, Lactococcus lactis, Enterococcus faecium, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus brevis)
Total Yeast (minimum)....600 billion cfu/pound (1.3 billion cfu/gram)
(Active Dry Yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
Bacterial Amylase (Bacillus subtilis)....118,000 BAU*/lb.
*Bacterial amylase BAU = one bacterial amylase unit (BAU) is the quantity of enzyme that will dextrinize starch at the rate of 1 mg/min at pH 6.6 and 30°C.
Fungal Amylase (Aspergillus oryzae)....95,250 SKB*/lb.
*Fungal amylase SKB = number of grams of soluble starch dextrinized, in the presence of excess ß-amylase, per hour at pH 5.0 and 400C.
Fungal Protease (Aspergillus oryzae)....68,000 HUT*/lb.
*Fungal protease HUT = the amount of enzyme that produces, in 1 minute at pH 4.7 and 400C, a hydrolysate whose absorbance at 275 nm is the same as that of a solution containing 1.10 μg per ml of tyrosine in 0.006N hydrochloric acid.
beta-Glucanase (Trichoderma longibrachiatum)....900 BGU*/lb.
*Beta Glucanase BGU = the amount of enzyme which, liberates glucose to 1 µmol glucose per minute at pH 6.5 and 40°C.
Hemicellulase (Aspergillus niger)....225 HCU*/lb.
*Hemicellulase HCU = one hemicellulase unit (HCU) is defined as that activity that will produce a relative fluidity change of 1 over a period of 5 min in a locust bean gum substrate at pH 4.5 and 40°C.
