The QLF Dry Cow Optimiser range has been used extensively by QLF in the USA. In collaboration with several UK mineral specialists, QLF have now formulated QLF Optimiser 25 to provide the correct balance of vitamins and minerals required for UK forages. It offers a complete dry cow product for high yielding dairy cows providing 25% protein as fed and combining very palatable 6 carbon sugars from molasses to help promote dry matter intakes as well as glycerine for energy and a full mineral pack containing chelated (protected) Zinc and Copper.
The vitamin and mineral pack includes chelated (protected) Zinc and Copper and high levels of Vitamin E and organic Selenium for the cow’s immunity 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.

Key Characteristics of QLF Dry Cow Optimizer 25
Molasses – provides very palatable 6 carbon sugars which help to promote fibre digestibility and dry matter intakes (DMI). A 1kg DMI increase pre-calving, results in 0.86kg DMI post calving. Molasses also helps to promote regeneration of rumen papillae.
Glycerine – a glucose precursor and as such is very palatable and high in energy.
Full Dry Cow Mineral and Vitamin pack – the specially designed vitamin and mineral pack includes chelated (protected) Zinc and Copper and high levels of Vitamin E and organic 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. Magnesium Chloride also helps the anion: cation balance.
