NutriVantage for Beef plus Optaflexx header image

Real world trials. Proven results.

At the foundation of our NutriVantage® formulas, are unique nutritional components that provide a blend of organic macromolecules, trace minerals, antioxidants, and chelating agents.  These components, when combined with other specie-specific ingredients, all work together to both synergize and optimize the nutritional ingredients in the specie formula so it can have better nutritional absorption within the animal’s digestive tract.

This means that with every feeding of our research-driven NutriVantage species-specific formulas, your animals are getting a research driven feed supplement that supports your animal’s precise nutritional needs. That is what makes NutriVantage the balanced animal feed Nutrition Optimizer.

In research trials, NutriVantage for beef has helped increase dry matter intake (DMI), support average daily gain, and reduce death loss.

Up to 10.0% increase in DMI, Up to 0.25-lb increase in ADG

Kent Nutrition Group (KNG) research trials have shown that NutriVantage for beef may optimize performance and/or the immune system for every stage and phase of production. KNG’s research has shown positive results when pairing NutriVantage with other nutrition supplements, particularly Optaflexx®.

Supporting β-agonist performance

NutriVantage for beef + Optaflexx improves live performance of finishing steers 28 days pre-harvest

The use of beta-agonists consistently increases the sellable pounds of beef per animal. A common limitation to cattle performance response observed by including Optaflexx into the feed ration during final 28 – 42 days of the finishing phase is the stable or decreased dry matter intake observed compared to control. In KNG research, when NutriVantage for beef is included in combination with Optaflexx, the producer realizes the benefit in all forms of live performance — increased intake from NutriVantage in combination with the greater efficiency from Optaflexx, which results in greater daily gain.

  • Producers feed Optaflexx because of the value it brings their operations; optimizing Optaflexx duration for the current fed market ensures the highest return on investment
  • With increased volatility in the cattle market, it is important to understand how optimizing dose and duration of Optaflexx can help improve bottom lines.

How to incorporate Optaflexx into a ration?

Optaflexx can easily be incorporated into the ration and feed equipment needs for any type of feeding operation. Visit with your feed supplier, nutritionist or Elanco representative to decide which of these will best fit your operation. There are multiple methods that can be used to add Optaflexx into your ration:

  • Dry (Type B) supplements or secondary premixes
  • Liquid (Type B) supplements or secondary premixes
  • Top dress
  • Micro-ingredient machine

For a small number of cattle on Optaflexx with a small amount of feed needed, how can small batches be managed ?

  • Consider making enough feed at one time to meet the needs for one to two days. Properly store the unused portion to be fed during the following day(s).
  • When only a single batch of feed is manufactured daily, consider feeding the Optaflexx cattle last during the morning feeding, leaving the balance of the feed on the truck and then feeding the Optaflexx cattle first during the afternoon feeding.
  • Consider delivering the entire daily feed at one time.
  • Consider adding Optaflexx to the final ration as a top dress
