Ganpro direct fed microbial (DFM) provides swine producers with a much-needed option for lowering feed expenses, while increasing feed efficiency and weight gain.

In a recent 110-day trial conducted in the Midwest, pigs fed a typical corn-soy diet enhanced with the probiotic Ganpro direct fed microbial (DFM) statistically improved performance versus the control group. Hogs supplemented with 7.5 grams of the probiotic Ganpro improved weight gains by 2 percent and improved feed efficiency by 3 percent. This performance improvement increased profit per pig by $2.60, resulting in a return-on-investment ratio of 4.9:1.

Ganpro direct fed microbial (DFM) provides swine producers with a much-needed option for lowering feed expenses, while increasing feed efficiency and weight gain. Manufactured by Ganeden Biotech, one of United States’ leading probiotic manufacturers, Ganpro is all natural, appropriate for livestock of all ages and is easy to implement across a wide range of diets and feeding situations.

Ganpro is specifically engineered for the agricultural industry. With today’s corn prices at more than $7 per bushel, Ganpro can save swine producers between $2.50 to $7.50 per ton. Unlike other feed additives which are difficult to mix and add, Ganpro requires no special storage or refrigeration and can be easily pelleted and is stable up to two years. Plus, Ganpro will not react with other ingredients and can be delivered via feed or water metering systems.

The secret behind Ganpro’s success is the patented probiotic strain, Bacillus coagulans, which was selected for its versatility of use, capacity to survive stomach acids and ability to help increase immune response and maintain gut microflora. Inside each cell of Bacillus coagulans is a spore, which is similar to a seed. This spore serves as a protective shield against the strong acids in the stomach ensuring that the spore arrives alive and then thrives in the intestines. Many traditional direct fed microbials contain strains of probiotics that are unable to form this protective layer, making them more vulnerable.

Ganpro has been accepted for use by the U.S. FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine and approved by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). Ganpro has not had a single report of adverse effects, is nonpathogenic, nontoxicogenic and produces no antibiotics. Like any DFM or feed supplement, results will vary depending on individual species.

As a premier direct fed microbial manufactured in the U.S., Ganpro samples and trial study results are available upon request. For additional information, call 440-229-5200 or visit
