Actifor Boost included which has been shown in independent trials to increase milk protein % and milk yield. Actifor Boost has also being shown to reduce blood urea levels which improves fertility.
The high energy content of the ration derived from maize, barley, wheat and digestible fibre sources allow high levels of carcass gain to be achieved.
Increased meal feeding in late lactation has the benefits of prolonging the grazing season, improving cow condition score, maintaining milk volume and keeping lactose levels higher.
With the above mentioned in mind, We at Southern Milling are promoting our Lacto 16 Dairy Nut.
Trials have shown a good response from finishing cattle at grass by supplementing with 2.5-3 kg of meal per day — if excellent quality grass is available at all times.
However, if excellent quality is not available, it will be necessary to feed up to 6 kg/day to heavy heifers or steers that are close to finish.
Milk yield and composition, along with the cow’s health and fertility status are the key areas that need to be considered when formulating a dairy ration. Improved herd fertility plays an important role in overall profitability. Correct inclusion of minerals and vitamins is essential to achieve good conception rates.
