“Adding Kender Bio Tech to our portfolio of natural ingredients was an easy choice. Our commitment to finding natural alternatives to help producers improve their animal production performance while considering animal welfare is palpable,” said Bill Achor, President and CEO of York Ag.
YORK, PA (PRWEB)
January 24, 2022
York Ag, a dynamic provider of holistic ingredient solutions that optimize animal welfare, has launched a new website section to announce the addition of Kender Bio Tech Ruminant Ingredients to its portfolio (http://www.yorkag.com/kender). In today’s world, an increasing number of consumers want to know how their food is produced and often question the use of antibiotics in animal production. Kender Bio Tech offers natural solutions to the ruminant animal nutrition space helping producers achieve better performance while reducing the use of ionophores and antibiotics. These natural solutions help ensure the delivery of healthy and safe dairy and beef products to the end consumer.
York Ag is an authorized US distributor of Kender Bio Tech products. Kender Bio Tech is an American company based in Colorado whose founders have more than 30 years of experience in ruminant feed additives and formulation. Kender Bio Tech currently works with nutritionists and veterinarians in the United States, Canada and South Africa and has a comprehensive portfolio of ingredients specifically designed for beef and dairy applications.
In the new section of the website, Kender Bio Tech’s portfolio includes information on several products available in the United States. For example, KENDER® BEEF 101 and KENDER® DAIRY 201 are herbal additives, available in conventional or organic formulations, based on botanical extracts and essential oils that help increase the capacity of beef cattle and cows dairy to overcome stress. This natural approach uses selected botanical extracts with calming properties that allow animals to spend more time eating, ruminating and socializing. Data indicate that anxiolytic botanical extracts can have a positive impact on eating behavior. “Adding Kender Bio Tech to our portfolio of natural ingredients was an easy choice. Our commitment to finding natural alternatives to help producers improve their animal production performance while considering animal welfare is palpable,” said Bill Achor, President and CEO of York Ag.
KENDER® BEEF 102 and KENDER® DAIRY 202 are also herbal additives that blend essential oils and spices, but they are used as a natural alternative to Na-Monensin. Na-Monensin is a polyether antibiotic isolated from Streptomyces cinnamonensis and is used in ruminant feed. Na-Monensin and KENDER additives have a fairly similar mode of action in the rumen. However, the difference is that KENDER natural additives help improve fiber digestion while Na-Monensin tends to decrease fiber digestion and cellulolytic bacteria.
KENDER® FLY SHIELD, available in conventional or organic formulation, is a natural alternative that helps repel flies and protect pasture and dairy cattle. This herbal formulation helps prevent the concentration of flies that can cause infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis (IBK), commonly known as pink eye in dairy and pasture cattle. Pink eye is a disease of the cornea (surface of the eye) and conjunctiva (eyelids) and is reported as the most common cause of eye disease.
“We are excited to bring Kender Bio Tech’s natural ingredients to the beef and dairy industries, and we will continue to pursue innovative, reliable and effective feed ingredient solutions that support feed manufacturers, livestock consultants and animal producers,” Acor said.
