Medipharm/Chr. Hansen, represented by Petr Mican, Managing Director, Czech Republic and one of the drivers in developing Rumenal, was congratulated on their pioneering work within probiotics for improving animal production by the Czech Minister of Agriculture, Mr. Petr Gandalovic during the Animal Vetex in Brno, Czech Republic.

Rumenal provides several advantages to professional farming. It represents a unique composition of biological components for fast recovery of the rumenal microflora. It enhances the general well-being of the dairy cows and helps prevent eliminate problems after calving like e.g. dehydration. Furthermore it increases milk production and the general energy metabolism in dairy cows, “explains Lenka Stankova, Product Manager, Animal Health & Nutrition, Chr. Hansen.

The product has first been launched in the Czech Republic, where results are good. On farms where Rumenal is used after-calving complications have dropped from 2% in average to 0,1-0,5%.

The first of many

Rumenal is part of a strong existing and fast developing product portfolio of natural animal health and nutrition products from Chr. Hansen and Medipharm. And more will follow.

“We have identified clear synergies and set our aim high. Together Chr. Hansen and Medipharm will provide the market with the world’s best natural silage additives and further develop and grow the already unique combination of expertise within feed probiotics”, explains Jan Kuhlmann, Vice President, Animal Health & Nutrition Division, Chr. Hansen.
