WHAT IS ALKAFIBRE?
Alkafibre is a unique product from the processing of Oatfeed pellets with Home n' Dry. The process releases Ammonia which acts on the fibre in the Oatfeed, improving nutritional properties.
With acidosis being a real threat to the well-being and performance of high producing cows, any product which can help to manage rumen pH and provide good digestible fibre is a valuable feed material to have available.
WHAT ARE THE NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS OF ALKAFIBRE?
During processing, the fibre is broken down - improving digestibility
In addition, the alkaline nature of the material neutralises the rumen acidity caused by a highly fermentable diet
The higher and more stable rumen pH increases dry matter intakes, allowing the use of more highly fermentable materials in the diet, without risk of acidosis
Increased microbial protein reduces the need for costly bypass protein
ANIMAL BENEFITS OF ALKAFIBRE?
Increased dry matter intakes can help to increase milk production and growth rates
Better rumen stability enables more efficient digestion of feed and reduced nutritional scour from acidosis
Cleaner cows at milking time
