Palm Kernel Expeller
Palm Kernel Expeller (PKE) is produced from the mechanical extraction of oil from palm fruit.
PKE is a good source of oil and rumen fermentable fibre, which usually improves butter fat test.
Although high in Neutral Detergent Fibre, PKE does not cause significant pasture substitution, owing to the high level of rumen bypass NDF in PKE. PKE contains nearly no starch and can be safely fed with ad libitum access in the paddock. It is GM free.
The quickest and easiest way to introduce PKE to your stock is by making the PKE accessible in the paddock in a trough or trailer where your stock can eat the product in their own time. This usually results in dairy cattle consuming 1-2kg/c/d within four days. If feeding in the bail through a silo, it is best to have the PKE mixed with other feeds. Then increase the inclusion rate slowly, being guided by their ability to consume the feed.
