Orego-Stim - A Natural Alternative
Optimising the Rumen
Orego-Stim is unique. It is the 100% natural feed additive/flavour used globally in livestock diets to maximise overall performance and returns. Published studies demonstrate the significant and wide-ranging effects of Orego-Stim on various microbes that affect the gastrointestinal tract of livestock animals, thus enhancing performance and boosting productivity.
Orego-Stim is 100% natural product containing essential oils. The mode of action that essential oils have in the rumen can be best described as a “natural” rumen modifier, which modify rumen fermentation by suppressing the activity of certain protozoa and enhance the total flow of rumenal protein.
They have also been demonstrated to reduce the production of NH3 again by modifying the rumen microbial population, in particular the protein, starch and NH3 fermenting bacteria.
There is evidence that essential oils have an effect on ruminant coccidiosis on both large and small ruminants by disrupting the life cycle of coccidia. The product is creating a hostile environment where the full life cycle of the coccidian parasite cannot be completed.
As conclusion oregano oil can be used in ruminants not only as a “natural” rumen modifier, but also for stimulating feed intake, prevention of coccidiosis, and increasing performance with no residues or side effects. By reducing Rumen NH3 production there are also considerable reductions in environmental emission.
