AB Vista to exhibit new feed additives for dairy cows

AB Vista will be exhibiting two new dairy cow targeted feed additives at this year’s Agriscot event on 21 November at Edinburgh’s Royal Highland Centre.

NitroShure and ReaShure, both supplied by Balchem Inc, provide essential nutrients for today’s high-producing herds and are now available for the first time to UK customers.

NitroShure is a rich, slow-release source of nitrogen and protein that makes a cost-effective, high-quality replacement for soya and other proteins in the diet of lactating dairy cows, thus enabling dairy producers to save money in their feed formulations - its high protein density allows for a greater usage of forage ingredients in the diet.

ReaShure, meanwhile, is the first highly rumen stable and protected choline product to go on sale in the UK and Ireland. Unprotected choline quickly degrades almost completely in the rumen, but ReaShure helps cows get the nutrition they need. ReaShure is fed during the pre- and post-calving transition period, for general improved health and increased milk production.

Neil Spreckley, GB and Ireland General Manager, AB Vista, said: “As Agriscot is now one of the UK’s top agricultural trade events and an arena for the latest industry developments, it is an ideal opportunity for AB Vista to formally present itself to Scottish dairy and beef farmers, and to introduce NitroShure and ReaShure, alongside our core existing products such as Vistacell live yeast and Acid Buf rumen conditioner. We look forward to talking through the features and benefits of all our products with regards to dairy cow and beef cattle performance and health, and answering any questions about our growing range of added-value micro-ingredients.”
