Mylo® is a liquid, live microbial feed supplement for livestock.
The product contains three bacteria from the Lactobacillus genus and is designed to aid in building the population and activity of beneficial microbes in the gastrointestinal tract of livestock. Calves supplemented with Mylo® may develop larger gastrointestinal organs and be heavier at weaning (or be weaned earlier). These observations have been made in a recent cornerstone study conducted by the University of Queensland.
Important commercial benefits, for dairy and beef enterprises, may arise from heavier weaning weights and improved development of the gastrointestinal organs from an early age.
Mylo® is certified as an input for organic livestock production, in Australia and New Zealand, and is free of antibiotics and hormones.
There is no withholding period associated with the use of this product.
The performance of Mylo® is reported here in an Independent Calf Live Weight Study and Commercial Field Trials.
The feeding rate for Mylo® is 10 mL per animal per day, targeting the gut microbiome.
Mylo® is to be consumed by livestock voluntarily, added to milk or water using Doseatron type systems if needed for control. Mylo® can also be added to mixed rations for older livestock - fed in the bale or TMR wagons.
For young livestock, feeding of Mylo® can start from birth to weaning. For older productive livestock, feed Mylo® daily, throughout milking or key growing periods.
