Energy Feeds


Tapioca comes from Casava plant tuber/root and is grown in the Tropics.

Feeding Recommendations

The risk of acidosis is high due to the high starch content and the finely ground nature of the feed before being pelletised. If cows are allowed ad libitum access there is a significant risk of rumen acidosis and death. Therefore feeding ad libitum in bins is risky and should only be fed as a blend with PKE/ Soya Bean Hulls at no more than 25% tapioca: 75% PKE or Soya Bean Hull.

If fed in the shed where intake is controlled you can feed up to 2.5kg/c/day in the spring and 2.0kg/c/day in mid to late lactation as long as the normal protocol of gradual introduction is followed (begin with 0.5kg/ day of Tapioca and increase by 0.5kg/day to desired amount).

Note: Consult your milk supply company for FEI guidelines

Cattle Feed Storage on Farm

As with any grain or meal feed products need to be kept dry as moisture combined with heat can cause fungi to grow. Common on farm storage methods are: in a shed or unused fertiliser bin; in a covered pit; on a concrete pad; or in a cutting, covered with plastic sheet and tyres. Most feed should be used reasonably expediently (within 40 - 50 days). The longer you plan to store feed products the better your storage facilities need to be.
