Maxibuff ensures the best possible rumen health

    VDS Premix has developed its own rumen buffer as an affordable alternative to sodium bicarbonate and calcareous marine algae. You’re assured of a healthy rumen with Maxibuff.

    Using a rumen buffer to manage rumen pH.

    Rumen acidosis is a major threat to cattle health. Ideally, the ruminal pH should be between 6.0 and 6.5. Acidity levels vary between different areas of the rumen and are affected by feed intake, rumination activity, ration composition and many other factors. It is common practice to add rumen buffers to cattle rations to manage rumen pH levels.

    Maxibuff: an affordable rumen buffer.

    VDS Premix has developed an affordable alternative to sodium bicarbonate and calcareous marine algae. A series of field tests with pH boluses have resulted in a compound that offers long-lasting, effective protection against rumen acidosis. By adding Maxibuff it is possible to reduce the pH amplitude values. The pH no longer drops so low, but also goes less high, resulting in a healthier rumen.
