    Applications Guidelines

    **Do not thaw pouches of pellets prior to use**

    Frozen culture in pouches thaws quickly, minimize exposure time outside of frozen conditions. Pouch contents may settle over time due to varying pellet densities, which may result in inconsistent product performance if only a portion of the pouch is used. Therefore, it is very important that the entire contents of DAIRYLAND®DIRECTTM KM-1 pellets be used when dosing.
