MSE - University of Nebraska Trials...

The Trial...

The trial consisted of 92 British cross steers randomly alloted into two groups and fed 119 days until slaughter. The control group received the basal ration plus g/ton of rumensin and 125 g/ton of tylan. The test group received the basal ration plus 2 lb/ton of MSE. The basal ration consisted of 10% corn silage, 82.5% dry cracked corn and 7.5% dry pelleted supplement. Research was conducted by the University of Nebraska, 1995. Statistical differences are noted below.

University studies have shown that MSE can increase the DM digestibility in a low quality feed stuff by over 100%. The feed:gain has been lowered by over 9% in feelot studies copared to Tylan/Rumensen. MSE lowered the digestibilty by 9% in feeder lambs fed a high concentrate diet. MSE has been shown to greatly diminish fecal odors from all classes of livestock. MSE has also been reported to control stress, nervousness and disease common to confined animals, both wild and domestic.
