Maximising Rumen Efficiency
As a result of a more efficient rumen, there is a reduction in Rumen Degradable Protein (RDP). This allows for improved milk and protein yields, or a reduction in overall protein requirements in the diet.
This reduction in protein degradation in the rumen also results in a reduction in ammonia production.
By improving rumen function, NutriPass O trials have shown:
- Increased milk yield by up to 1.5l/cow/day
- Increased milk protein content by up to 1g/l of milk
- Reduced urea levels in the milk
Based on an inclusion rate of 25g per cow per day, with yield improvements and reduced protein requirements alone, there is a payback of 3:1
