Energy Feeds

Hominy

Hominy is a high quality by-product from Maize milling and is a high energy feed that is excellent for feeding during early lactation to minimise weight loss and maximise peak milk production.

Nutritional Benefits

Hominy aids palatability, has good hydration properties and is a good carbohydrate source of energy. It can also contribute significant amounts of calcium, iron, riboflavin and thiamine to diets. Due to its high quality, Hominy is a very digestible feed but care does need to be taken to avoid over-feeding. It is GM free.

Feeding Recommendations

Due to the high starch content a gradual introduction is recommended. Once animals have adapted to a higher starch diet, Hominy can be fed at between 2kg to 4kg per cow per day to maximise production.
