High-quality protein ingredients with a balanced amino acid profile to meet the dry cow’s requirements.
Quality fibrous ingredients to supply the rumen microorganisms with highly fermentable NDF and energy. Promotes proper rumen adaptation and stabilizes the rumen environment.
Provides sustained availability of ammonia to the rumen environment, resulting in enhanced microbial protein production, fiber digestion and efficient rumen nitrogen capture.
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.
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.
Rumen-protected B-vitamins and Choline Supplement.
B-vitamins and choline are known to play a critical role during transition. They help increase dry matter intake, optimize health at calving and improve reproduction.
High levels of vitamins A, D and E.
Elevating blood methionine level helps promote better liver function, decrease inflammation and improves oxidative stress capacity.
