Depending on the stage of lactation and level of feeding, using C16 fats may typically result in an increase in butterfat of up to 0.4% and an increased milk yield by up to 1.5 litres/cow/day.
- Extremely high energy content.
- Very high in C16 fatty acids.
- Drives butterfat production in the udder.
- Improves milk yield.
Protected from rumen degradation
- Extremely high melting point.
- Will not interfere with fibre digestion in the rumen.
- Energy is delivered to the small intestine where it is used very efficiently.
- High rate of feed conversion efficiency.
- Unlike other protected fats it does not depress feed intakes
Lactating cows – 200-500 g/head/day
