Additives

GrainCorp Feeds offer a range of additive options which can be added at required rates to any of the GrainCorp Feeds dairy range to help ensure your animals remain healthy, maintain or improve body condition, and improve productivity.

Products

Lime

Lime is an essential part of the dairy cow’s diet and is particularly important post calving when the calcium aids in the prevention of milk fever.

Magnesium Oxide

Magnesium plays an important role in milk fever prevention (calcium deficiency).

Monensin

Monensin has been shown to have a positive effect within the cow’s rumen with claims it can aid in the prevention of bloat and increase the protein fraction of milk produced, as well as helping to improve feed conversion efficiency, therefore economically generating more milk per mouthful of feed. Research shows 5-7% more energy is utilised from feed by cows treated with monensin.

Salt

The sodium in salt is essential for muscle, nerve and immune system function, sound reproductive health, and improved coat conditions.

Zinc

A range of zinc products are available including Zinc Oxide, Zinc Sulphate Monohydrate and Zinc Sulphate Heptahydrate which can be added as and when required.

Zinmet

ZinMet is a combined source of organic trace minerals Zinc and Chromium, plus Methionine and can be added to dairy blends as required. ZinMet helps to boost immunity, reduce lameness, lowers somatic cell count, improve feed conversion efficiency and increase milk production.

Rumen Buffers

Rumen Buffers help to stabilise the pH of the rumen enhancing digestibility and feed conversion.

Bypass Fat

Bypass Fat is a source of readily available energy, developed to easily and efficiently increase energy levels in the animal’s diet. Ideal for periods during which the cow is unable to consume sufficient energy to meet demands.

Toxin Binders

Fusion® Dyad (Mycotoxin Binder) has been proven to minimise the negative effects associated with Grass Staggers so is ideal to add to the cow’s diet during summer when Mycotoxins, particularly in older ryegrass maybe present.

Yeast

Yeasts are used to improve the overall health and function of the rumen by creating an environment which helps improve the number of food digesting bacteria, creating a more stable rumen pH and helping to improve feed conversion and digestion (e.g. Levucell SC).

Vitamins & Minerals

GrainCorp Feeds has access to a wide range of trace mineral packages which can include Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Cobalt, Chromium, Selenium and Iodine. Trace Mineral packages can be tailored to individual herd requirements.
