MILK MAKER SPRINGER (DCAD) PELLETS

RIVERINA MILK MAKER SPRINGER PELLETS are a palatable anionic salt preparation specially formulated to be fed to pregnant, dry dairy cows in the 4 weeks prior to calving. Research has shown anionic salts help reduce milk fever, subclinical milk fever, retained placenta and improve milk production in the subsequent lactation.

TYPICAL COMPOSITION

  • Barley, sorghum, wheat, bran and pollard, anionic salts, flavouring, Yea-Sacc®, mould inhibitor, Riverina ruminant vitamin & mineral premix.
  • Base raw materials may gradually change seasonally.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

  • THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE FEED.
  • MILK MAKER SPRINGER PELLETS are designed to be fed at the rate of 3 kilograms per head per day for the 4 week period prior to calving in conjunction with pasture.
  • Feed only to dry, pregnant dairy cows.
  • Individual feeding is ideal but can be offered in a self-feeder (results will vary due to less uniform intakes).
  • Dry pregnant cows & heifers should be kept on an unfertilised late vegetative/ mature pasture or cereal hay.
  • Avoid pastures high in potassium as this will reduce the effectiveness of the product. This includes lucerne, maize silage, tropical pastures, molasses & short lush pasture.
  • DO NOT FEED AFTER CALVING.
  • Ensure cool, fresh, clean water is available at all times.
