Zilmax helps farmers conserve our natural resources8 because they provide more beef with fewer cattle.1,9 Fewer cattle = less waste, and less use of energy, land and water.9

The conservation of natural resources that results from feeding Zilmax to cattle has been measured. For example, for every 100 head of beef cattle fed Zilmax, compared to cattle not fed this type of feed supplement:
  • 3,000 additional pounds of beef are produced – enough to feed 53 U.S. consumers for an entire year
  • 10,000 gallons of water are conserved – enough drinking water for 39 people for an entire year
  • 28,000 pounds of feed are conserved6

North American farmers raise millions of cattle each year to help meet global consumer demand for high-quality beef. The environmental benefits of feeding Zilmax can be substantial.8
