The project will result in the development and commercialization of a live direct-fed microbial (DFM) feed additive product, initially for the western Canadian cattle market then adapted for NAFTA and international markets. The product will is designed to enhance animal feed conversion ratio (FCR) and health as well as reduce the incidence of gastro-intestinal pathogens that are potential human health hazards in beef products. The fermentation process will use novel intellectual property developed by Sage Biosciences to enhance the efficacy of the DFM when fed to cattle.. Improvements in animal performance will be a direct economical benefit to the feedlot industry.   In addition, this DFM feed additive which reduces pathogen load will not only be a direct benefit to the beef industry, but also to the health and safety of the general public.
