Struggling with heat in your total mixed ration feed?
The high humidity and temperatures of the summer stimulate the growth of bacteria, yeast and mould naturally found in feed. Fibre, carbohydrate and protein are all broken down, energy lost and the feed heats up. The feed ration quality deteriorates and becomes unappetising, reducing the cow’s energy uptake.
The solution is a combination of calcium propionate and calcium/sodium formates, which inhibits the growth of bacteria, yeast and mould in feed, preventing deterioration. These features are found in the dry acid product Solvita TMR Cool from Vilomix.
