  5. How is the product different from SCD Bio Livestock®?
  6. This product is a dry feed additive directly administered/mixed to livestock feed, whereas SCD Bio Livestock® is a liquid water additive and feed additive (used as spray to feed). Both are applied in livestock and aquaculture operations.
  7. As a feed additive, can you say the dry form is a better choice? What about as a water additive?
  8. This is a choice about user’s usage habits and farm conditions. This product is ready to mix with feed directly. At some farms that use chlorine in the water, liquid product may be a problem to apply as water additive since they are sensitive to chlorine. Also spraying the liquid product may be difficult because of daily feeding habits. So, dry product may a good alternative to apply directly to the feed. Otherwise, it is up to the discretion of the user.
