Food Safety

MICRO-CELL Products Contribute to Food Safety

Two of the greatest challenges in today’s beef industry are improving feed efficiency and reducing potential food safety challenges.

Leveraging the power of probiotics (direct-fed microbials) helps cattle:

  • Maximize available nutrients from feed to increase average daily gain
  • Make the hind gut environment inhospitable for detrimental pathogens like Escherichia coli 0157:H7 (coli) and Salmonella.

Micro-Cell FS containing L. acidophilus BT-1386 has shown in numerous trials to


Reduce shedding of E. coli and reduced re-infection of Salmonella1


Exclude pathogenic such as E. coli and Salmonella while helping to prevent pathogens from colonizing in the lower gut1,2


Completely eradicate E. coli in the rumen environment compared to the control3


Inhibit E. coli growth in fecal cultures2
