Presented by Lance Baumgard, Iowa State University


There are multiple on farm scenarios that can directly or indirectly damage an animal’s rumen and intestines. These stressors include heat, pen moves, rumen acidosis, over-crowding, dry-off, transportation, the transition period, etc.

A compromised rumen and intestine barrier results in an immune response and an activated immune system requires a lot of energy and nutrients; nutrients that could have otherwise been used for productive purposes. There are multiple strategies nutritionists and producers can use to minimize the negative consequences of gut-derived inflammation and these possible tactics will be covered in this presentation.
