The Farm

  • Trialled 15 cows on against 15 not on

The Results

  • Cows producing over 5 litres more
  • Milking over 42ltrs while holding body condition.

"We began using SN Triple Booster Pack in August 2020 as part of a trial with Specialist Nutrition.

Specialist Nutrition believed that this combination pack providing energy and improving rumen function would increase overall animal performance. In particular, we were looking for a boost in milk composition and yield in an already high yielding herd and an improvement in overall herd fertility.

We trialled 15 cows on against 15 not on the triple booster with equal ability and age. The animals were fed using a hopper specially developed for use with the Lely Astronaut.

Initially we didn't see huge increases as my herd were already on one of the ingredients, and I had seen the first lift in yield from using this already. However, by October a significant difference was clear.

The group getting the SN Triple Booster Pack were on average producing over 5 litres more than their counterparts.

When I analyse overall herd performance, 9 of the top 10 are on the trial, and all milking over 42ltrs while holding body condition.

I have seen fertility improve with an increase in conception to first service.”

Specialist Nutrition provide all the nutritional advice I need anddo y have a tailored plan for the herd. Cows are happy, in great condition, going in calf and filling the tank. "
