A liquid feed supplement containing immediately available energy sources and additional calcium & magnesium. To be used at calving to provide an energy boost during a period of high demand.
Starter Plus is a blend of feed additives that provide an immediate energy boost as well as a prolonged supply of energy to give a calving cow a supplemental source of energy which will last 24 hours. A combination of MPG and molasses provides an energy boost within 20 minutes, whilst the vegetable oil is metabolised over a 12 hour period and the by-pass fat kicks in after 12 - 18 hours. When used at calving, Starter Plus will help the cow through the transitional period by kick starting lactation and reducing metabolic disorders.
Starter Plus also contains supplemental calcium and magnesium to assist in reducing the incidence of milk fever and staggers.
