BoVantage™ technology is in all Kent Beef Show Feeds. BoVantage can help stimulate intake and provide immune system support. It is a synergistic blend of natural ingredients, organic acids, vitamins and complexed trace minerals. The nutrient-dense mixture supplies anti-oxidants, natural chelating agents and contains prebiotics. BoVantage additive is the latest in nutritional technology for starting cattle of all ages!

When fed at the recommended levels, BoVantage feed additive can:

  • Promote a healthy rumen environment
  • Support the growth of beneficial bacteria
  • Help combat stress
  • Provide immune system support
  • Aid in nutrient availability and digestion
Beef Show Blender AN

Kent Beef Show Blender AN is an all-natural supplement with built-in fiber and energy sources that are specifically formulated for making complete show cattle rations to provide superior performance and appearance. Mix Kent Beef Show Blender AN with corn and other preferred grain sources to make creep, grower, and finishing rations.

It’s all in one convenient inclusion:

  • All-Natural Protein Sources — high-quality protein sources offer greater utilization and amino acid balance
  • Fiber — Cottonseed hulls are a palatable fiber source that provides added bloom and fill
  • Energy — Steam-flaked soybeans are a uniquely palatable, high-fat energy source; can help improve daily gain and finish
  • ShowBloom — a source of brewers yeast that contains a multitude of essential nutrients including B-complex vitamins, also known as the “appetite vitamins.” Animals fed brewers yeast generally exhibit increased feed consumption and maintain better appetite
  • Zinpro — provides highly-available minerals that support overall performance and immune response technology
  • BoVantage Technology — all-natural nutritional advantage for cattle that can promote a healthy rumen, stimulate intake, and provide immune system support; exclusive to Kent Feeds

Beef Show Grower

A complete texturized feed for growing cattle and developing heifers. Formulated with multiple protein and energy sources for optimum performance and appearance. This sweet blend encourages appetite and consistent intakes.

Features and Benefits

  • Steam–rolled corn improves carbohydrate availability, releasing more energy for gain.
  • Steam–rolled barley provides unique fermentation and source of energy to improve gain and facilitate proper finish.
  • Oats improve diet texture, promoting appetite and gain, while providing a unique combination of digestible fiber and energy.
  • Cottonseed hulls provide protein, energy, digestible fiber, and palatability for increased gain and show bloom.
  • Multiple protein sources (including bypass protein) build muscle, providing for maximum muscle expression and development.
  • Dried whey – milk protein improves palatability and show-ready bloom.
  • Complexed trace minerals increase bioavailability and absorption, improving health, nutrient utilization, and hair coat quality.
  • High vitamin levels improve energy and protein meta­bolism, feed utilization, immunity, and overall health to help fight stress in show environments.
  • Yeast improves palatability and feed digestion, leading to increased gain and feed efficiency while promoting stable rumen fermentation.
  • Molasses increases palatability and intake for improved acceptance and average daily gain.
  • BoVantage technology which can promote a healthy rumen, stimulate dry matter intake, and provide immune system support.
  • ShowBloom™ aids in hair growth, skin condition and coat quality along with superior muscle development and firmness.
Feeding Directions
Feed as the sole diet to developing show cattle weighing 500 – 700 lb. Gradually adapt calves to the beef show grower diet and feed to appetite. However, the amount fed will depend on frame size and desired gain. It may be desirable to also feed 1 – 2 lb of long stemmed hay per day.
