Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed (21% Crude Protein – 2850 Kcal Metabolizable Energy/kg)
Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed is a concentrate feed, which provides protein, energy, and other nutrients at optimum levels to high yielding dairy cows.
Raw Materials Used for the Production of Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed
Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed is manufactured from corn, barley, corn gluten, soybean meal (46% crude protein), canola meal, sunflower meal (36% crude protein – dehulled), dried distillers grain with solubles (DDGS), and wheat bran.
Raw Materials NOT Used for the Production of Ekol 21 Dairy Feed
Wheat (causes rumen lactic acidosis due to faster starch digestion), urea (NPN), ammonium sulphate (NPN), sunflower hulls, sunflower meal (28% crude protein), animal byproducts, all food industry wastes (biscuits, pastry, chocolates, chips, nuts etc.) are not used in manufacturing Manav Yem products.
Advantages of Use
Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed contains quality protein and energy sources to obtain maximum microbial protein synthesis.
Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed with high bypass protein content (41%) provides all amino acids at optimum concentrations for maximum milk yield; on the other hand, reduces nitrogen (urea) losses.
Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed keeps blood urea nitrogen (BUN) within normal ranges and thereby enhances reproductive efficiency.
Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed reduces the risk of negative energy balance (NEB) and thereby minimizes ketosis in high yielding dairy cows postpartum.
The use of safe (slowly digested) starch sources for Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed manufacturing reduces the risk of rumen lactic acidosis and minimizes the acidosis-born problems such as mammary inflammation, scours, and lameness.
The inclusion of high-quality premix (vitamins and minerals) in Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed improves milk yield performance and reproductive efficiency; on the other hand, provides protection nutritional based metabolic disorders (milk fever, lameness).
Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed maintains high lactation persistency thereby slows down the decrease in milk yield and enables the lactating cows to reach their potential milk yield in the lactation.
Toxin-born problems in the liver, mammary glands mastitis), reproductive system (lack of estrus and/or infertility), and digestive system (scours) do not develop due to the safe use of raw materials in the manufacturing.
Recommendations for Use
Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed should start to be given to pregnant heifers or cows two weeks before parturition and continue for 3 months postpartum.
If the cows are not grouped based on milk yield in the farm, Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed can be given in decreasing amounts to the lactating cows depending on the number of days in lactation until the dry period.
Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed can be used in the farms using wet forages (corn silage, sugar beet pulp, ryegrass silage) and grains (barley, corn, etc.).
Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed can be used alone or be mixed with crushed or flaked grains ready to use in the farms.
Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed should be mixed with roughages in an adequate and balanced ration and given to the high yielding dairy cows.
Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed should be given in a mixed total ration with roughages (corn silage, alfalfa hay, straw, sugar beet pulp, vetch hay, etc.) to lactating cows.
Cows fed with Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed should have free (ad libitum) access to clean drinking water, mineral blocks, and high-quality roughages.
The provision of Ekol 21 Dairy Cattle Feed in two or three meal times is the most suitable feeding regimen.
At least, a 7 day transient period from one concentrate to another one should be done to protect the digestive system health and to enable the cattle to adapt to the new feed.
