Direct-fed microbials (DFMs) – supplements containing live, naturally-occurring microorganisms – help provide microbial balance in the digestive tract. When fed to dairy cows, improved digestion, growth and production, and reduced intestinal problems often result. Different organisms work by different mechanisms and in different regions of the digestive tract. In addition, DFM organisms tend to work best in combination, each exerting their own beneficial traits.
1. Fungal products tend to stimulate other beneficial organisms – fiber-digesting bacteria in the rumen, for example. Aspergillus oryzae and Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast are the primary fungal products found on the market.
2. Lactic acid-producing bacteria, and a class of low-level lactate-producing bacteria, called Bifidobacteria, tend to exert most of their effects in the lower digestive tract (small and large intestines). These organisms are mainly thought to keep pathogens in balance through numerous mechanisms.
3. Bacillus species provide their benefits primarily through the production of digestive enzymes.
