* Rumen School is an educational program developed by Lallemand Animal Nutrition. Because a well-functioning rumen is the cornerstone of milk and production, Lallemand Animal Nutrition has developed an on-farm audit program aimed at evaluating and optimizing rumen efficacy in dairy cows thanks to a set of complementary criteria encompassing environmental and animals signs. The ultimate goal of this program is to contribute to better feed efficacy, and consequently improve income over feed cost for the producers.
