Megalac™

Description

Highly-proven, rumen protected fat (Calcium Salt of Palm Fatty Acids) for improved production efficiency.

Nutritional Benefits

High Energy Density

  • ME = 33.3 MJ/kg DM
  • 2.5 times to ME concentration of cereals
  • Highest measured NEL = 27.3 MJ/kg DM
  • More energy per bite
  • Energy used very efficiently for milk production


High Digestibility

  • Over 90% from research studies
  • 45% unsaturated fatty acids
  • Fat & energy available for use by the cow


Increased Milk Production (25 trials)

  • Milk yield response = +2.3kg/cow/day
  • MS response = +80g/day in first 150 days


Improved Feed Efficiency

  • More milk produced per kg DM intake
  • Higher returns from the herd


Improved Rumen Function

  • Reduces acidosis risk in the rumen
  • More favourable conditions for growth or fibre-digesting bacteria


Reduced Methane Production

  • Over 13% less methane produced per kg milk = more efficient production
  • Less dietary energy lost as methane


Improved Fertility

  • Improvement in 1st service conception, 100-day in-calf rates and not-in-calf rates
  • Increased diet energy density targeted to reduce body condition loss, time to oestrous and improved conception rate
  • Increases follicle size to improve chances of pregnancy
  • Increased production of progesterone to improve embryo survival

Feeding Recommendations

Feed between 0.2 to 0.5 kg/c/d.
