Protected Fats and Proteins

The use of rumen-protected fats and proteins to boost nutrient supply is now commonplace amongst the UK’s top dairy and beef producers, enabling animal performance to be maximised even when rumen fermentation has reached its limits.

Fed as part of a well-formulated ration, Trident rumen-protected fats (100% fats and calcium soaps) and fat blends (50% fats) will help minimise negative energy balance in early lactation, drive milk yield and improve milk quality. The result is a genuine return on investment in terms of increased animal performance.

The Trident rumen-bypass protein SoyPass is a soyabean meal-based rumen-bypass protein product supplying twice the quantity of digestible undegraded protein (DUP) as in hipro soyabean meal. Ideal to help meet the protein requirements of high yielding dairy cows and fast growing young cattle, SoyPass can also reduce feed costs by replacing the DUP normally supplied by hipro soyabean meal.

Free-flowing and highly cost-effective, Trident protected fats and proteins are suitable for a range of ruminant livestock (See Quick Comparison table for details), and are available both bagged and in bulk.

Balanced fats – increase milk output, reduce condition loss (Golden Flake and Nutrilac).

C16 fats – high palmitic acid content to boost milk fat production (Butterfat Extra).

50% fat blends – protected fat benefits at a more affordable price (F1 Super Fat).

Rumen-bypass protein – to drive production, weight gain and growth (SoyPass).

Quality assured – all ingredients conform to FEMAS* standards (or recognised equivalent).
