Up to 60% of fresh cows have significant fat accumulation in the liver. This excess fat reduces liver function and can ultimately lead to fatty liver syndrome.
During negative energy balance, the liver processes body fat into energy other tissues can use. If this happens too rapidly, it can overwhelm the liver, causing NEFA build up. Feeding your herd TransCow 16 RDR will reduce the NEFA level by improving dry matter intake and providing a balanced carbohydrate diet.
Improving liver function can also result in:
- Reduced ketone production
- Improved immunity
- Increased glucose formation
- Increased dry matter intake
Feed so as to provide 4.0 kg of this product per head per day to cattle weighing 600 kg and consuming 3.5% of bodyweight in dry matter. Feed continuously during the dry and lactating periods. Feed according to a balanced, on-farm feeding program supplied by a Masterfeeds Account Manager.
