Bactana is identifying and commercializing beneficial microbes that enhancing the gut microbiome to improve animal health & farming efficiency while reducing global antibiotic usage.

Recent advances in molecular and DNA sequencing methods used to study microbial ecology have allowed us to effectively examine the interaction of an animal’s microbiome with its immune system & metabolism (immunometabolism) at an accelerated pace.  Bactana’s initial product line is based a collection of natural bacteria strains, and is supported by patents and multiple calf trials that demonstrate improved feed efficiency, animal growth, scours reduction, increased milk production, and reduced mortality. We are also developing similar products for use in swine, poultry, and companion animals.
