GoldenFlake is an energy-dense feed which is used to drive milk yield, support butterfat levels, and improve body condition, which in turn, can boost herd fertility.

Fats comprise of approximately 2.25 times more energy compared to carbohydrates or protein.

Maintaining butterfat levels is one of the main challenges facing milk producers during the grazing season. It is a particular issue for spring calving herds, where cows are also hitting peak yield and need to retain sufficient condition for good fertility.

Protected fats are essential for beef cattle as they help body condition scores and lower the risk for acidosis while increasing the energy density of the diet.

Key Features

Extremely high content of rumen-protected, highly digestible energy

Allows the energy density of the diet to be increased for high-performing stock without impairing rumen function. Additional energy can be portioned for milk production and improved fertility.

  • increase milk
  • increase energy intakes
  • improve body condition

...

A source of C16 fatty acids

Provides the building blocks for milk fat synthesis, increasing value per litre.

  • Increase milk fat %

Feeding Rates

Dairy Cows: 200g - 500g/hd/day

Beef Cattle: 150g - 250g/hd/day

Handling & Storage

As with other dry feeds, fats should be stored in cool dry conditions. Care should be taken to ensure correct amounts are weighed into rations and that the straight material is kept well away from animal contact. Fats are normally available to all areas throughout the year, though adequate notice needs to be given to ensure timely delivery of small loads.
