Dairy MaxGrass (Plus fertility)

cows grazing 2This product has been specially formulated using our experience from last years very successful Dairy Maize to Graze nut. The main ingredients are 30% Maize, Beet pulp, Soya Hulls, Barley and HiPro Soya. It also contains a Rumen Buffer agent, Active yeast and we can also put in our special and very successful fertility mineral pack. This feed is specifically targeted for cows making the transition from silage to grass and into the grazing season. The Buffering agent and the yeast will help the cow’s rumen to stabilize during a very difficult time while she changes from 6 months silage, to grass. And when we get into very leafy second rotation grass this feed will help to stabilize her rumen to help offset acidosis from this very leafy turbocharged grass.  We are also including a fertility mineral pack if needed in this feed to help get the breeding process started. Our customers experience with this has been very positive from the last few years with more compact calving, higher conception rates and less empty cows. A balanced mineral pack is also provided as standard with Dairy MaxGrass.

DairyMax 18% nut Plus      

DairyMax 18% has been formulated to provide that step above the ever popular Superflo 18% nut in terms of digestible energy content and a high UFL value. This product has very quickly become the mainstay of most high performing dairy herds with customers reporting higher milk solids, high volumes of milk and cows not losing body condition.

Following our motto of “only mixing with the best” the ingredients of DairyMax18% include Maize, Barley, HiPro Soya meal and Wheat Gluten. It also includes a Rumen buffer and active yeast to increase food conversion efficiency even further.

Spring Grazing, the goal. Can we achieve it today or do we wait a little longer?
