Glyco-Buf

The proven way to healthy rumen and energy boost for transition and early lactation cows

Introduction to the Product

About Glyco-Buf

 

Failure to maintain optimal rumen pH in high yielding dairy cows during transition period and early lactation may result in reduced dry matter intake with the consequence of loss of body condition, metabolic disorders and reduced milk production. Research and field observations show loss in milk production can be up to 2.9 litres/cow/day. Increasing energy supply by feeding more concentrates quite often plunges the rumen into acidosis, reduces volatile fatty acid production which results in inefficient rumen function.
Glyco-Buf is a unique calcium-glycerol product developed to help maintain optimum rumen health and fibre digestion thereby increasing dry matter intake. It also supplies glucose direct to the liver to drive up milk production.
Glyco-Buf is a highly palatable free flowing, slow- release meal designed for high performance by:
• Maintaining rumen pH between 5.5 and 6.8
• Reducing the risk of acidosis and SARA
• Improve fibre digestion and DMI in high acid loading and concentrate diets
• Supplying glucose direct to the liver for lactose production to drive milk production
• Reducing the risk of fatty liver and ketosis

Features & Benefits

Feature Benefit
Slow-release, rumen buffer Improved rumen efficiency leading to increased fibre digestion, volatile fatty acid production and more milk production
Highly palatable Improved total dry matter intakes, reducing bodycondition loss and supporting higher milk yields
 High content of glycerol Increased energy supply to the liver, lactose production and milk volume Reduced risk of metabolic disorders Glycerol improves efficiency of fat utilisation so reducing the amount of body fat that needs to be mobilised
Reduces heating in TMR Glyco-Buf acts as a preservative and helps maintain ration quality
