F1 Super Fat - A modern high energy supplement for dairy cows.

A boost for cow performance.

Introducing F1 Super Fat, a high performance energy supplement for dairy cows. F1 Super Fat helps to maintain cow condition, and in turn the longevity of animals. Less culling, udder and foot problems.

F1 Super Fat will improve the appetite response of dairy cows. Studies have shown that a 0.5Kg feed rate can raise milk yields by up to 2 litres per cow after just ten days!

Reducing N.E.B. (negative energy balance) in early lactation also has been shown to improve conception rates. Cows that have been fed F1 Super Fat have exhibited stronger bulling, and higher conception rates to the first service. This can increase the efficiency of a herd, as cows will be served earlier, and less semen straws have to be used.

F1 Super Fat has been shown to improve yields of butterfat and protein, even in high-yielding animals.

 
Increased milk yields

Increased Milk Yields

Because of the high palatability of F1 Super Fat combined with the dryness of the product, expect the appetite response to be high, allowing for increased intakes, excellent feed conversion rates and increased milk yields, up to 2 litres per day after only 10 days!

Increased Milk Quality

Increased Milk Quality

F1 Super Fat contains an even balance of C16 & C18 fatty acids. This explains why feeding F1 Super Fat has been shown to improve yields of butterfat and protein, even in high-yielding animals!

Improved Fertility

Improved Fertility

Reducing N.E.B. (negative energy balance) in early lactation has been shown to improve conception rates. Cows fed F1 Super Fat have exhibited stronger bulling and higher conception rates to the first service. (See also: F1 Elevator)

Palmitic C16:0 Fatty Acid

Rich in C18 & C16 Fatty Acids

F1 Super Fat is based on Refined Palm Fat, rich in C16 & C18 fatty acids, in a Palm Expeller & Molassed Sugar Beet Pulp carrier.

The Key Benefits of Feeding F1 Super Fat

There are many benefits to feeding F1 Super Fat in your ration:

  • Increased appetite and milk yields
  • Cost effective production response
  • Improves bulling response and conception rates
    by reducing Negative Energy Balance (N.E.B.) in early lactation
  • High energy will balance poorer forages
  • Maintains milk quality and improves health
 

The Key Features of F1 Super Fat

F1 Super Fat is an excellent choice for anyone trying to increase yields and milk quality whilst also aiding fertility response.

  • Based on refined Palm Fat rich in C16 & C18 fatty acids
  • High energy Palm Expeller and Molassed Sugar Beet Pulp carrier base
  • Dry formula enables efficient mixing
  • Weather-proof bags
  • Aromatic & palatable

The Function of F1 Super Fat

F1 Super Fat will help to maintain cow condition, and in turn the longevity and productivity of the cows' life. Improved conditioning means less culling, udder problems and foot problems!

Cows that have been fed F1 Super Fat have exhibited stronger bulling, and higher conception rates to the first service. This can increase the efficiency of a herd, as cows will be served earlier, and less semen straws have to be used. (See also: F1 Elevator)

  • F1 Super Fat is not a calcium soap so there is much less risk of milk fever if fed to dry cows.
  • Feeding F1 Super Fat is a simple and effective technique for improving ration energy density.
  • The attractive aroma enhances the palatability of F1 Super Fat, improving overall ration/TMR intakes.
  • Increased ration energy density and improved ration intakes ensure that fresh-calved dairy cows come into milk quickly and maintain a higher yield throughout their lactation!
  • F1 Super Fat helps to retain body condition by reducing the cows' need to mobilise it's own body fat.

Feeding High Density TMRs

Post calved cows need to be offered a very palatable, high-density ration. The graph opposite shows that the output increases as diet density increases.

The key point is that as the diet density increases we get extra performance from extra intake, low density diets will reverse the benefit.

F1 Super Fat is exceptional in this respect because it is able to provide an active appetite stimulus where most other fats do not.

Profit for optimum output and the law of diminishing returns

The Partition Of Nutrients

This sounds complex but it's just the nutritionists way of explaining what the animal does with its food!

Every animal prioritises its use of feedstuffs according to the main pathways:

  1. Maintenance
  2. Production (Milk)
  3. Growth (Liveweight Gain)
  4. Pregnancy

When F1 Super Fat is added to the ration the response varies according to the stage of lactation.

  • Early Lactation = More Yield
  • Mid Lactation = More Fat & Protein
  • Late Lactation = More Conditioning Recovery & Foetal Growth

This simple principle allows you to work out what your main response is likely to be based on the average stage of lactation of the herd or feeding group.

Feeding Rates

F1 Super Fat can be top-dressed or mixed into a TMR.

We recommend that you target Super Fat between 0.35 and 0.5Kg per cow per day. Super Fat gives the full palatability response at 2% of Dry Matter Intake. So targetting at 0.5Kg will give the desired effect. At this level the F1 Super Fat will supply enough energy for more than 2.5 litres of milk.

Suggested Feeding Rates

Average Days In Milk F1 Super Fat/Cow/Day
0 - 100 0.5Kg
100 - 150 0.4Kg
150 - 200 0.35Kg
