New additive to support digestive health dairy cows

Diamond V has developed a new feed additive to support for optimal digestive health and balanced immune function for dairy cows.

The product is claimed to support: Rumen health, dry matter intake in early lactation, maintenance of body weight, efficient feed utilisation and milk production over entire lactation.

More energy and nutrients available

Dairy cows experience production challenges year-round. These challenges include pregnancy, calving, milk production, and environmental stressors, like heat stress. "Optimal rumen fermentation, digestibility, and antioxidant capability make more energy and nutrients available to support milk production and immune health," says Diamond V Ruminant Product Manager Julia Hamann. "By working in synergy with the cow's biology, this product supports her capacity to initiate and manage an appropriate response in the face of any production challenge."

Part of Dairy 365 program

Diamond V began developing this product more than five years ago. Purina Animal Nutrition, a key research and business partner of Diamond V, began animal studies in 2011 and was instrumental in bringing the new product to market. This product is now the newest addition to the Diamond V's Dairy 365 Program.
