Micro-Cell® FS Gold is a patented blend of Lactobacillus buchneri 40788 and Lactobacillus acidophilus BT-1386 formulated to help cattle maximize the available nutrients from by-product feeds.

* Not all products are available in all markets nor associated claims allowed in all regions.

Both strains in Micro-Cell® FS Gold are exclusively licensed to Lallemand Animal Nutrition and were brought to market based on the positive benefits to animal agriculture practices.

  • L. acidophilus BT-1386 promotes and maintains a normal intestinal environment that helps reduce the ability of pathogenic bacteria to develop, which contributes to performance, feed efficiency and food safety.
  • L. buchneri 40788 produces lactic and acetic acids and other fermentation products that fuel rumen bacterial acid production. The resulting acids are absorbed from the rumen and converted into a form of energy that is available for maintenance or weight gain — resulting in improved performance

Increasing digestibility of fiber from corn milling and by-products will increase the utilization efficiency of feedstuffs and reducing certain bacterial populations in the lower intestinal tract that will help maintain a healthy and balanced microflora.


The strain L. acidophilus BT-1386 has been shown to help lower E. coli 0457:H7 and Salmonella found in the lower gut and has been listed on the pre-harvest production best practices (PBP) document by the Beef Industry Food Safety Council (BIFSCo).1, 2
