Feature

Benefit

Increase milk fat %

A rich source of C16 fatty acids. 

Provides the building blocks for milk fat synthesis, increasing value per litre.

Increase milk yield

An extremely high content of rumen protected, highly digestible energy.

Allows the energy density of the diet to be increased for high-performing stock without impairing rumen function. Additional energy can be partitioned for milk production.

Ready to feed, easy storage

Dry, free flowing, mini prills or flakes.

Easily incorporated into the diet.

The predicted responses (benefits) assume that the specified nutrient, physical or structural dietary components are limiting livestock performance in the current ration.

Recommended daily feed rates (per head basis)

Butterfat Extra can be fed as part of a TMR, top dressed or as part of a blend.

Milking and Dry Cows

0.25 - 0.75 kg (depending on performance, cow condition and stage of lactation)

Ewes and goats

0.1 kg (for multiple bearing and lactating ewes and goats)

Experience has shown improved returns when used in the first 150 days of lactation for high yielding cows or in the diets of prolific milking and breeding ewes and goats. For best results consider feeding a rumen-protected protein source, e.g. SoyPass.

Up to 5% is recommended in manufactured complementary feeds.  It is best introduced to the ration over a period of a few days and it should be mixed with other feed materials before feeding.
