GROWTH PERFORMANCE

Complementary feeds can enhance the growth and productivity of ruminants. This is particularly important for livestock raised for meat or milk production. Proper nutrition can result in faster weight gain and maturity, as well as higher milk yields.

CHALLENGING PERIODS

Health and Disease Resistance: proper nutrition can boost the immune system of ruminants and support the animal during difficult times such as diseases or infections. A well-balanced diet can also support the healing and recovery of sick or injured animals.

DIGESTIVE COMFORT

The microbial fermentation that occurs in the ruminant’s stomach is essential for breaking down fibrous plant materials, but at birth calves don’t have yet the flora and need to build it during the feed transition. Complementary feed can provide support for the calf during this challenging period, and nutrients that promote optimal rumen function, allowing the animal to efficiently utilize its forage-based diet.

OVERALL WELL-BEING

Maintaining healthy body condition and nutritional balance, especially during periods when the quality of available forage or pasture is low (i.e. dry seasons or winter) through complementary feed to provide essential nutrients, including protein, energy, vitamins, and minerals, that may be deficient in their primary forage or pasture diet.

REPRODUCTION SUPPORT

Adequate nutrition, supported by complementary feed, is essential for proper reproductive performance in ruminants. It can help improve the fertility of breeding animals, resulting in healthier and more productive herds.

METABOLISM & DIGESTIVE BALANCE

The microbial fermentation that occurs in the ruminant’s stomach is essential for breaking down fibrous plant materials, but calving as well as lactation can be a challenge for the rumen and the cow metabolism. Complementary feed can support feed intake and provide nutrients that promote optimal rumen function, allowing the animal to efficiently utilize its forage-based diet. It can also assist the digestive metabolism to prevent any deficiency or overload that could be decreasing the productivity of the cow.

SUPPORT PREVENTION OF DEFICIENCIES AROUND CALVING

Meeting the needs or the requirements in calcium of the cow at calving to reduce the risk of milk fever and subclinical hypocalcaemia Contribution to maintain normal phosphate levels. The liver, as a key organ to support well-being and performance, can be distressed during challenging period like post-calving and feed transition, resulting in potential health issue for the cow and economical consequences for the farmer. Ketosis is one of the main metabolic liver disorder that cause a malfunction of the energetic metabolism in the organ, with loss of appetite, performance drop and in worst case mortality for the animal.

Maintaining healthy body condition and nutritional balance, especially during periods when the quality of available forage or pasture is low (i.e. dry seasons or winter) is a challenge. Complementary feed can bring essential nutrients, including protein, energy, vitamins, and minerals, that may be deficient in their primary forage or pasture diet.

In summary, complementary feed for ruminants is essential for ensuring they receive a well-balanced diet that meets their specific nutritional needs. This leads to improved growth, productivity, and overall well-being, while also contributing to efficient and sustainable livestock production practices.
