CON-VERGE™– Where Immunity, MicroBiome and Colonization Resistance Meet
To feed a MicroBasics product is to push the boundaries of possibility, unconstrained by cost and red tape. Our formulation philosophy is built on Immunity principles that free us to innovate and create our greatest visions. On these foundations, icons are born.
To own the moment yet exist beyond it: this is what makes an icon. As new technologies and innovations unfold, we push towards the next frontier: embracing the possibilities of MicroBiome Engineering. Our values are unwavering while our vision remains clear: eliminate antibiotics and coccidiostats from animal feed.
The intestine harbors an ecosystem composed of the intestinal mucosa and the commensal microbiota. The microbiota fosters development of the Immune system, aids digestion and protects host cells from pathogens.

- Managing Mycotoxins The U. N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FA) estimates that annually 25% of the world food crops are contaminated with mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolites produced by mold and are harmful to living organisms. Exposure is usually by consumption, contact, or inhalation of contaminated feeds. Negative biological effects because of mycotoxin exposure include liver…
- Resolution of Inflammation in Dairy Cattle High producing dairy cattle are more vulnerable to disease leading to a shorter life expectancy and reduced thriftiness. Improved understanding of immune function is needed in discovering the best tools to combat existing disease and any future pathogens that may compromise animal health. Gut Microbiome The establishment and development of the gut microbiome is…
- Interview With Dr. Barb Petersen – Sunrise Veterinary Service This week we get to hear some thoughts on dairy cattle health from Dr. Petersen of Sunrise Veterinary Service. Dr. Petersen is originally from Eastern Iowa and jokes she did her whole career backwards. In 2009 she graduated from veterinary school at Iowa State University and began her first job with the USDA in a…
