Rumen Bypass/Fat Powder is a high energy feed fat which is ideal for adding to the rations of ruminants to boost energy intake. During early lactation, when demands on Cow’s energy reserves are high and appetite is low, energy requirements can reach extremely high levels owing to the intensive onset of milk production. The solution to such high energy requirement can be found in our Fat Powders.
Without the additions of extra energy, during early lactation, the cow is forced to draw on her own body reserves which can result in weight loss, acetonemia and reduced fertility. The high yielding cow is, therefore, subject to considerable weight loss over the first 60- 80 days of lactation and this can have substantial effects on the subsequent performance.
