Orbit

The proven fat supplement to boost milk composition

Introduction to the Product

About Orbit

 

With many contracts paying on higher milk composition, it is vital to maximise rumen health and deliver the  nutrients that directly affect milk quality. Orbit is a carefully formulated blend of fatty acids derived from  highly digestible oils combined with C16 fats and glycerine to give a highly palatable free flowing meal, ideal for incorporation in all dairy diets to help drive milk quality by:
• Increasing overall energy supply
• Providing a balance of fats to complement the rest of the diet
• Supplying the essential nutrients direct to the liver
• Improving liver function by reducing the risk of fatty livers
• Providing EPA & DHA Omega-3 oils from the most effective marine oil source
• Boosting the immune system to improve overall health and efficiency
• Encouraging intakes by reducing heating of TMR diets
Together these mean:
• Better milk quality across a range of diets and feeding systems
• Higher milk yields
• Reduced body condition score losses
• Greater reproductive efficiency
• Better rumen health and lower levels of SARA
• Healthier, more profitable cows
