Benefits of Lactipro to Feedyards

Fewer Hay Days. Better Pay Days.
For feedyards looking to safely accelerate cattle into the finishing ration in fewer steps, LactiproNXT shortens the step-up period by 50% or more, resulting in less roughage used, fewer trips through the feedyard delivering starter rations, and improved feed efficiency.

Cut Finishing Losses
For feedyards looking to reduce post-terminal processing performance losses associated with stress, LactiproNXT improves rumen health, delivers a consistent ROI and helps ensure a smoother transition back to full feed following terminal processing. Seven commercial feedyard trials demonstrated a significant reduction in post-terminal processing mortality.

We’ve been using Lactipro for the last five years. From our Lactipro research, what we saw was a significant reduction in the time it takes to get cattle back up on feed following terminal processing.

Dr. Abram Babcock

President, Adams Land & Cattle

If I can use Lactipro to take the nutrition stress out of changing that diet, that has been where I’ve seen Lactipro working on a feedyard with 10,000 head down to the guy who feeds 500 head.

Dr. Brian Dorcey


Lactipro allows us to get cattle on finish feed ten days sooner. Cattle on feed for 110 days show like 120‑day cattle, that’s why we identify them with a Lactipro ear tag. I always sell these cattle first.
