Dairy

As part of the dairy industry, you are well-versed in the challenges dairy producers face on a daily basis. While obstacles such as volatile feed prices, low milk prices, and production challenges can impact an operation, you are prepared to tackle these challenges head on. The Promote® line is equipped to help dairy producers overcome nutritional hurdles and achieve production goals through the strategic use of dairy-focused feed additives and forage inoculants. A dairy operation only maintains profitability when animals’ stress is minimized and their nutrition delivers the support they need for higher performance. Promote® dairy feed additives provide the technology and research to help you do just that.

AOXTM

Calving, health challenges, and high temperatures can initiate oxidative stress in a dairy cow’s body. AOX is a combination of botanicals that help support animal health during stressful conditions. AOX provides dairy producers a low-cost alternative to meet the health needs of their animals.

 

Recommended Use:

Mix AOX into dairy rations at a rate of 0.4 to 1.6 pounds per ton of complete feed, based on nutritionist recommendations.

Cinergy IGP 5/10

Cinergy IGP 5/10 is a blended feed supplement used in dairy cattle rations. It contains reed-sedge peat, yeast cultures, and fermentation extracts of Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus licheniformis to promote normal gut health. Extensive research on IGP indicates its use supports milk yield in dairy cattle, as well as rumen buffering in research trials.

 

Recommended Use:

Feed Cinergy IGP 5/10 at a rate of 50 grams per head per day.

Defusion® 501

Defusion® 501 is an anti-caking flow agent designed for use in feed rations across species, including dairy cattle.

 

Recommended Use:

Defusion® 501 should be included in dairy rations at a rate of 10 to 20 grams per head per day, not exceeding 2 percent in the total ration.

Defusion® VAC-60

Defusion® VAC-60 is a unique combination of rumen buffers, yeast cultures, bacterial fermentation products, feed preservatives, and vitamins. Defusion® VAC-60 is designed to serve as a supplement to dairy cattle as an aid in maintaining rumen function.

 

Recommended Use:

Introduce Defusion® VAC-60 at 30 grams per head per day for 3 to 5 days, then increase to 50 to 60 grams per head per day.

Defusion® VAC-60 contains a minimum of 13 percent sulfur and should only be used when total ration sulfur can be maintained below the NRC 2001 maximum tolerable level of 0.4 percent in the diet for dairy cattle. Total sulfur includes sulfur from water as well as feed. As with all feed ingredients, follow label directions carefully and consult your nutritionist if needed.

I.C.E.®

I.C.E.® is a proprietary combination of key ingredients to keep cows cool, including an osmolyte to help animals stay hydrated. The elements of I.C.E.® work at the cellular level to help cows better regulate their body temperature during heat stress, minimizing the effects of heat stress on milk production and reproductive success.

Recommended Use:

I.C.E.® is available as a concentrated premix for inclusion at 0.04 pounds per head per day and in a less concentrated form for on farm addition at 0.1 pounds per head per day.

TrasicTM SeY

Trasic SeY is a selenium yeast product that contains high amounts of selenomethionine and selenocysteine, which are taken up by the animal and stored for use when the animal’s needs for selenium exceed daily intake. This increased bioavailability leads to a more effective and efficient product.

ValidoTM Choline RP

Valido™ Choline RP is a microencapsulated choline chloride, providing rumen-protected choline with superior availability post-ruminally. Choline is a well-recognized essential nutrient for dairy cows, especially during the transition period, playing a key role as a methyl donor and in liver metabolism to support reduced risk of fatty liver and ketosis and increased milk production and fertility. Rumen-protected choline is encapsulated in a fat matrix that cannot be digested by the rumen microbes. Once in the intestine, the fat matrix is digested by the cow’s enzymes to release the choline for absorption. The level of protection in the rumen and availability in the intestine both vary widely; Valido™ Choline RP offers superior delivery of absorbable choline to the lower gastrointestinal tract.

 

Recommended Use:

Valido Choline RP is recommended for use in transition cows, 30 days before calving to 90 days after calving, at a rate of 60 grams/cow/day.

Valido Iplus® YM

Valido Iplus® YM  is a blend of yeast culture, yeast-derived functional carbohydrates, bacterial fermentation products, and other beneficial ingredients to promote gut function in ruminants.

 

Recommended Use:  

Feed Valido Iplus® YM at a rate of 2 ounces per head per day to lactating and non-lactating dairy cattle.
