√ Designed to balance calcium concentration and stimulate dry matter intake in the lactating cow. √ The rumen buffer plays a vital role to keep the pH of the rumen at optimum (pH 6.3) for longer periods of time, thereby promoting higher dry matter intake and improved digestibility.
√ The combined effects helps alleviate milk fever, restore energy balance and promote higher feed conversion.
The importance of Phosphorus:
√ Phosphorus forms the backbone of DNA, is an integral component of cell membranes, is a primary component of ATP and ATP for energy transfer and is an important structural component in bone.
Dairy cows Phosphorous Requirements:
√ 1.1g of P is lost per litre of milk produced √ At peak production: A cow producing 26 kg of milk will lose on average 29g of P a day. √ Plus a cow requires extra P for maintenance and breeding (25 to 30g/head day)
