COMBO® Proven in University ResearchPublished in the May 1998 issue of Journal of Dairy Science
50 Virginia herds were assembled to participate in a study to demonstrate the benefits of COMBO® on increased milk production. The test records of five consecutive Dairy Herd Improvement Association (DHIA) tests were compiled and analyzed for each cow (total of 3417) in each herd (46) participating in the study. Records were collected beginning 1.5 months before product supplementation and continued to be collected for 2 months after COMBO® supplementation. The presence of other yeast cultures or DFM’s had no effect on the response. Neither fat nor protein quantities or percentages were affected. Stage of lactation did not affect response. First lactation cows responded slightly more positively that later lactation cows. The overall response to COMBO® was +1.4 lbs. milk/cow/day.

What is COMBO®?
Utilizing the latest advances in fermentation technology, an old standby has been made better. By engineering a yeast fermentation process from scratch, specifically for feeders and feed mills and settling for not less than the highest standards in product quality and activity. COMBO® provides in one product a concentrated source of yeast and enzyme activities.
Each pound of COMBO® has yeast you can smell and activity you can see for a cost of pennies per day. This highly palatable and pleasing product is prepared through painstaking hours of fermentation and careful drying to preserve the activities. There is no pound sold before it passes a rigid quality assurance program to assure the proper yeast and enzyme activities in the finished product. Each ounce of COMBO® contains not less than 25 billion yeast cells.
Microorganisms used in animal feed products
Food quality yeast is maintained and fermented in stainless steel reactors, then is applied at just the right time to a medium of the first quality feedstuffs, minerals and sugars. All the media for COMBO® is steam cooked to release special nutrients, flavors, and to pasteurize it prior to contact with the yeast.
Each lot of COMBO® is allowed to ferment for hours in special chambers under strict environmental control. It is then dried, ground, tested, blended with the other bioactive ingredients that have also passed rigid quality control. From here it is packaged and released for shipment only if the lot meets all minimum guaranteed specs.
COMBO® is a bioactive animal feed product of special microorganisms (bacteria, fungi and yeasts) selected for their ability to provide large amounts of digestive enzymes.
