GrainCorp Feeds offer a range of additive options which can be added at required rates to any of the GrainCorp Feeds dairy range to help ensure your animals remain healthy, maintain or improve body condition, and improve productivity.
Unique to GrainCorp Feeds, Pro Cow MP400 is a cost effective, pelleted source of sodium, calcium, magnesium and Bovatec, offering a power packed pelleted feed additive. While high in minerals Pro Cow MP400 also provides levels of starch, protein and energy meaning that feed value will not be compromised if added to your selected dairy feed. Pro Cow MP400 can either be blended with either meals or blends to maximise palatability and keep dust to a minimum, or it can be added to other pelleted feeds enabling you to feed a 100% pellet blend in your shed, mitigation dust issues, maximising uptake and maintaining feed value. Pro Cow MP400 is designed to be fed to lactating dairy cows at 400 grams per day as part of a blended feed ration with a minimum combined blended feeding rate of 2kg per head per day.
Monensin has been shown to have a positive effect within the cows rumen. Monensin can aid in the prevention of bloat control, help improve feed conversion efficiency resulting in improved production and has also been proven to increase the protein fraction of milk and therefore economically delivering more milk per mouthful of feed. Research show 5-7% more energy is utilised from feed by cows treated with monensin.
Lime is particularly important post calving as the calcium aids in the prevention of milk fever in dairy cows following calving. Calcium is also essential for optimum milk production, skeletal heath, and animal development.
Magnesium plays an important role in milk fever prevention (calcium deficiency). Magnesium is required for the production of hormones that are important for the absorption of calcium from the gut and the mobilisation of calcium from bones.
Salt provides minerals that are essential for muscle, nerve and immune system function, sound reproductive health, and improved coat conditions.
GrainCorp Feeds has access to a wide range of trace mineral packages which can include Zinc, Copper, Maganese, Cobalt, Chromium, Selenium and Iodine. Trace mineral packages can be tailored to individual herd requirements.
