Supplements

To maintain their productivity and longevity in the milking herd, dairy cows generally need more nutrients than can be provided by available forage or roughage. The quality protein, vitamin, and mineral ingredients in nutritionally balanced Kent dairy supplements help enhance overall herd health and support optimum production.

Microbe Plus®

Microbe Plus 38 is a 38% protein lactation supplement to be fed when available forages contain lower concentrations of RUP (rumen undergraded protein). Rations containing high concentrations of alfalfa haylage are often low in RUP.

Microbe Plus NEL 388 and Microbe Plus NEL 3811 supply 8% and 11% fat, respectively, to support the energy needs of high producing cows. When used appropriately, added fat increases milk production, milk fat %, energy balance, and reproductive performance.

Feeding Directions
Feed to dairy cows or heifers at the rate of 1.0 to 6.0 lb per head per day.

Pro Vider™ 38

Pro Vider™ 38 is the product of choice when available forages (such as corn silage) contain higher concentrations of RUP (rumen undegraded protein) as a percent of crude protein. Pro Vider 38 is a 38% protein, moderate RUP supplement (approximately 40% of the crude protein in Pro Vider 38 is RUP).

Pro Vider NEL 386, Pro Vider NEL 388, and Pro Vider NEL 3811, supply 6%, 8%, and 11% fat, respectively, to support the energy needs of high producing cows. When used appropriately, added fat increases milk production, milk fat %, energy balance, and reproductive performance.

Feeding Directions
Feed to dairy cows or heifers at the rate of 1.0 to 8.0 pounds per head per day.
