A note on the inclusion of the antibiotic actaplanin in the diets of lactating dairy cows



A note on the inclusion of the antibiotic actaplanin in the diets of lactating dairy cows



Animal Production 49(2): 323-326



Actaplanin, a complex of glycopeptide antibiotics produced by Actinoplanes missouriensis, was investigated as a performance enhancer when incorporated in the diet of lactating dairy cows at the rate of 960 mg/day. In a trial with autumn-calving cows over two successive lactations, the milk yield of animals given diets incorporating Actaplanin (no. = 132 lactations) showed only a small (proportionately +0.038), non-significant increase in milk yield over the controls (no. = 121 lactations). Overall, there were no significant differences in milk composition, cow body weight or condition score changes, mastitis cell counts or in the majority of blood metabolites.
