HARBIN, China, June 4 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Kangtai Cactus Biotech Inc. (the "Company") (OTC Bulletin Board: CKGT), a vertically integrated grower, developer, manufacturer and marketer of a variety of cactus-based consumer products in China, announced today test results from studies conducted of cows that received the Company's Cactus Cattle Feed. The studies, which included 30 cows, were conducted in conjunction with the Company's application for a Certificate of National Invention Patent and showed cows that received the Company's Cactus Cattle Feed increased milk production by approximately 15.2% during the twenty-day trial period. In order to be granted the Certificate of National Invention Patent, the applicant is required to demonstrate that its product or invention creates significant value.
The Company also conducted a second test, evaluating the ability of cattle to produce milk under adverse environmental conditions, including cold temperatures and strong wind conditions. The study selected 100 milk cows between the age of 2.5 to 3 years, and divided them into two groups. The cows in the control group were fed with the normal feed which was made by the ranch. The cows in the experimental group received the same feed, but also added 1kg cactus cattle feed to each ton of the normal feed. The milk production of the experimental group increased to 1,372kg from 1,350kg despite the adverse conditions. The milk production of the control group decreased to 1,286kg from 1,380kg. The results suggest that the use of cactus cattle feed additives could increase milk production by 8.44%.
"We are excited by the results of these studies, as it will enhance our ability to market our cactus products, as well as increase the probability that we will be granted important patent protection," said Jinjiang Wang, President of China Kangtai Cactus. "These results further support the key role that our cactus products can play in improving the production of cattle."
