The Blueprint For Performance Through Nutrition
- Highly efficient trace mineral fortification
- Promote reproductive performance
- Support the body’s natural defense system
- Support health antioxidant status
Features & Benefits
High-quality protein that delivers a minimum of 450 g of metabolizable protein with a balanced amino acid profile to meet the dry cow’s requirements.
Provides sustained availability of ammonia to the rumen environment, resulting in enhanced microbial protein production, fiber digestion and efficient rumen nitrogen capture.
Quality fibrous ingredients to supply the rumen microorganisms with highly fermentable NDF and energy. Promotes proper rumen adaptation and stabilizes the rumen environment.
Dietary Escape Microbial Protein (EMP).
A revolutionary microbial protein technology designed to provide a unique, high-quality protein source that delivers the complete array of essential amino acids to the dry cow.
Medicated with Rumensin®.
Contains 62 mg/kg of monensin sodium.
Alltech® Mineral Total Replacement Technology (TRT).
Achieved through the inclusion of chelated trace minerals in the form of Bioplex® and Selenium yeast in the form of Sel-Plex®, TRT replaces all inorganic sources of trace minerals and Selenium. Alltech Minerals are readily absorbed, stored and utilized by the cow helping her meet nutrition requirements and achieve optimal health.
High levels of Vitamin E.
Helps reduce the incidence of retained placentas and mastitis after calving. It optimizes animal health and performance.
Live yeast cells that stimulate the growth of ruminal bacteria, improves rumen fermentation, fibre digestion and feed efficiency.
Maintains gut health and integrity, promotes good bacteria and builds defenses, supports the efficient transfer of nutrients from cow to calf.
A palatable source of chloride and sulfur to reduce DCAD in dry cow diets. Reducing DCAD during the dry phase helps improve calcium status and performance during lactation.
