Since our founding, Ralco has focused on the microbial environment with an understanding that microbes are essential for improving nutrient conversion in both plants and animals.
This is why we utilize patented chemistry and unique prebiotics to help producers make better use of their nutrients for improved immunity, gain and profit.
THE RALCO DIFFERENCE
While other companies use biologicals or direct-fed microbials (DFM) that supplement individual strains of bacteria, Ralco’s approach works to get more out of the existing native microbes in a system.
Rather than adding non-native microbes, we use patented chemistry and unique prebiotics that consistently increase microbe activity and diversity to carry out more efficient processes for improved nutrient conversion.
Ralco Microbial Processes Approach
Works with all existing native microbes using patented chemistry and unique prebiotics
Consistently increases beneficial bacteria
Complements biologicals and stimulates activity of both native and supplemental microbes
Improves nutrient conversion
Safe, natural approach
Typical Microbial Approach
Works with single strains of microbes as biologicals or DFMs
Shown to have inconsistent results
MICROBIAL CATALYST® RESULTS
Feeding Microbial Catalyst® improves nutrient conversion by increasing fiber digestibility to provide more energy for production. The micrographs below show the additional release of energy through cell wall degradation when using Microbial Catalyst®.
In multiple university trials with high-forage diets, fiber digestibility was improved 12-24% over control.
IMPROVING NUTRIENT CONVERSION WITH
PATENTED MICROBIAL CATALYST®
Microbial Catalyst® is Ralco’s patented approach that stimulates existing rumen microbes to break down fiber more efficiently and provide more energy for production.
DID YOU KNOW?
The rumen is one of the most dense microbial environments. Over a quadrillion microbes exist in the rumen.1
Our patented chemistry converts normally insoluble trace minerals into a form that remains suspended in liquid environments like the rumen. As a result, Microbial Catalyst® is able to stimulate all existing microbes evenly for greater effectiveness and improved nutrient conversion.
IMPROVING NUTRIENT CONVERSION WITH PATENTED MICROBIAL CATALYST®
In 2009, Ralco optimized Microbial Catalyst® to increase microbial activity in the soil. Microbial Catalyst® works by stimulating existing soil microbes to drive more efficient nutrient utilization to the plant.
DID YOU KNOW?
There are more microbes in one
teaspoon of healthy soil than
there are people on Earth.2
As a result, this approach helps crop producers make better use of fertilizer inputs and do more with less. By stimulating existing soil microbes, Microbial Catalyst® makes nutrients more available to the plant that would otherwise remain dormant or tied-up.
Crop producers using Microbial Catalyst® products experience healthier soils, healthier crops and higher yields.
Plants are proven to show:
Greater root mass
Better stress tolerance
IMPROVING NUTRIENT CONVERSION IN THE GUT WITH ACTIFIBE® PREBIOTIC
Actifibe® Prebiotic is a natural approach to preferentially feed beneficial bacteria throughout the entire gut and enhance the immune system for superior gut health and host health.
While other prebiotics are rapidly broken down in the gut, limiting effectiveness, Actifibe® has a unique structure that’s fermented slowly. This ensures Actifibe® feeds beneficial bacteria throughout the length of the gut for greater effectiveness and consistent population growth.
Produce a balanced gut microflora
Support intestinal integrity
Create competitive exclusion
Increase nutrient absorption
Producers using Actifibe® experience animals with:
Greater gut health
Improved feed efficiency and weight gain
Less health challenges
