Galaxy

The leading fat supplement for transition, fresh calved and early lactation cows

Introduction to the Product

About Galaxy

 

Reducing the early lactation energy gap through effective transition and fresh calved management will underpin a profitable lactation. Galaxy is a widely proven specifically, balanced blend of fatty acids. Derived from highly digestible oils including marine oil and specific vitamins, it is a highly palatable free flowing meal, designed to help overcome the negative energy balance in early lactation by:
• Increasing overall energy supply
• Supplying essential fatty acids
• Supplying the essential nutrients direct to the liver
• Improving liver function by reducing the risk of fatty livers
• Providing glycerine to boost the utilisation of fat in the diet
• Boosting the immune system to improve overall health and efficiency
Together these mean:
• Better milk quality across a range of diets and feeding systems
• Higher milk yields
• Reduced body condition score losses
• Better rumen health and lower levels of SARA
• Healthier, more profitable cows
