Introduction to the Product

About Utopia

 

Effective transition management should focus on minimising stress while providing a balanced mix of the nutrients required to reduce metabolic problems and support cow health, fertility and productivity Utopia is a precisely formulated highly palatable free flowing meal, designed to maximise the high yielding dairy cow efficiency by:

  • Supplying essential fatty acids C18:2, C18:3 plus C18:1 C20:5 and C22:6
  • Stimulating insulin, and reproductive hormones for improved fertility
  • No added C16:0 from palm to minimise insulin resistance
  • Stimulating insulin, and reproductive hormones for improved fertility
  • Supplying glucose direct to the liver
  • Boosting the supply of glucogenic energy
  • Supplying rumen inert Choline to support the liver and reduce the risk of ketosis
  • Providing the most effective source of the Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, from marine oils
  • Providing Vitamin E and Selenium to reduce oxidative stress
  • Boosting the immune and reproductive systems
  • Supplying Methionine to support higher milk and protein yields, immune and reproductive systems

 

Together these mean healthier, more profitable cows with:

  • Improved dry matter intakes
  • Higher yields
  • Increased milk protein
  • Improved body condition
  • Greater reproductive efficiency

Typical daily feed rates

 

Transition & high yielding dairy cows 300-750 grams/head/day

Fatty Acid Profile

Utopia fatty acid profile

 

<C14:0 Myristic 4.0% C18:2 Linoleic 16.0%
C16:0 Palmitic 14.0% C18:3 Linolenic 2.0%
C18:0 Stearic 12.0% C20:5 EPA 3.0%
C18:1 Oleic 27.0% C22:6 DHA 4.0%

Omega 6:Omega 3 ratio 1.8:1

Variation in fatty acid profile comes from the raw materials themselves and the need to compensate for ambient temperatures.

Further Information

Why does Utopia deliver these benefits?

 

The unique combination of fatty acids helps meet the energy needs of dairy cows, while supplying the balance of fatty acids required to reduce negative energy balance and improve production and fertility:

  • Utopia contains fats from vegetable sources for increased digestibility
  • By improving digestibility the energy supply is increased which helps maximise production and reduced body condition loss
  • The fatty acids in Utopia contain over three times the energy content of carbohydrate based feeds such as cereals and beet pulp
  • Being rumen-inert they can be included with no risk of acidosis
  • Rumen protected selenium and vitamin E helps reduce the risk of oxidative stress and transition related metabolic diseases
  • Omega 3 from marine sources is proven to have a positive effect on fertility
  • Combination of rumen protected methionine and rumen protected choline improves health, fertility and production.
