Heifer Feed (17% Crude Protein – 2700 Kcal Metabolizable Energy/kg)
Heifer Feed is a concentrate feed, which provides protein, energy, and other nutrients at optimum levels for breeding heifers from 6 months of age until 2 months before parturition.
Raw Materials Used for the Production of Heifer Feed
Heifer Feed is manufactured from corn, barley, corn gluten, soybean meal (46% crude protein), canola meal, sunflower meal (36% crude protein – dehulled), corn distillers grain, and wheat bran.
Raw Materials NOT Used for the Production of Heifer 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 the manufacturing of Manav Yem products.
Advantages of Use
Heifer Feed contains quality and delicious raw materials, which provide a nice aroma and flavor and is willingly consumed by heifers.
Heifer Feed contains quality protein and energy sources to obtain maximum microbial protein synthesis.
Heifer Feed keeps blood urea nitrogen (BUN) within normal ranges and thereby enhances reproductive efficiency.
Heifer Feed is manufactured from quality raw materials to enhance growth and development in breeding heifers.
The use of safe (slowly digested) starch sources in the manufacturing reduces the risk of rumen lactic acidosis and minimizes the acidosis-born problems such as scours and lameness.
The inclusion of high-quality premix (vitamins and minerals) in Heifer Feed improves reproductive efficiency and provides protection nutritional based metabolic disorders (lameness).
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 use of safe raw materials in the manufacturing.
Recommendations for Use
Heifer Feed is used for breeding heifers from 6 months of age until 2 months before parturition.
Heifer Feed is used for breeding heifers in dairy or breeding cattle farms.
Heifer Feed should be offered with roughages (corn silage, vetch hay, ryegrass hay, etc.) to the breeding heifers in a total mixed ration.
Heifers should have free access to clean drinking water and mineral blocks.
Heifer Feed should be given at least in two equal portions daily.
A 7 day transition period to Heifer Feed should be done.
