QLF Dry Cow Optimiser 25 has been used extensively by QLF in the USA and the vitamins and minerals have been specified in collaboration with several UK mineral specialists. It offers a complete dry cow product for high yielding dairy cows having 25 % protein as fed and combining very palatable 6 carbon sugars from molasses (to help promote dry matter intakes) with glycerine and a full mineral pack containing organic (protected Zinc and Copper).
The vitamin and mineral pack includes chelated (protected) Zinc and Copper and high levels of Vitamin E and Selenium for the cow’s immunity system at calving. Magnesium is included to reduce the risk of Milk Fever by helping the ability of the cow to regulate Calcium blood concentrations.
QLF Dry Cow products may be effective by:
- Increasing ration palatability and intake, thus the cow actually eats the required kilograms of straw.
- Improving fibre digestibility, making better use of the straw which the cow has eaten.
- Reducing ration separation and ration sorting.
- Distributing nutrients and additives (minerals) uniformly.
