About Ascus

Ascus has grown from humble beginnings in a Mojave desert airplane hangar to now having the largest animal associated microbial datasets in the world, multiple lead products under development and field validated globally, and a core team of dedicated and innovative individuals across the world working to support our vision of helping livestock producers feed the world. We remain rooted in a practical mindset that emphasizes applying our platform, an engine of creative destruction, to meet the urgent need for higher performing and natural microbial products in the animal feed additive sector.
