P E R S TO R P L A U N C H E S PROPHORCE™ SR: SPECIFIC


RELEASE BUTYRIC ACID Feed additive producer Perstorp introduces ProPhorce™ SR: a novel form of butyric acid with specific release throughout the digestive tract. ProPhorce™ SR has all of the well-known benefits of butyric acid but none of its smell issues. ProPhorce™ SR consists of butyrins


which are glycerol esters of butyric acid. The esterifying process ensures the absence of the typical butyric acid odor and a superior delivery of the active components throughout the digestive tract. The effectiveness of ProPhorce™ SR has been well demonstrated in “in vivo” trials in different animal species. ProPhorce™ SR is available in both dry


and liquid forms unlike pure butyric acid salts or coated products. It facilitates handling as it has no dust or odor issues. For more information, please visit www.perstorpfeed.com or contact us through info@perstorpfeed.com


HARBRO LAUNCHES GLUCOSE AID TO ‘BRIDGE THE ENERGY


GAP’ IN DAIRY COWS Glucose Aid has been launched to the UK dairy market by Harbro to ‘bridge the energy gap’ that is the cause of ketosis and metabolic problems in dairy cows post- calving and into early lactation. Glucose Aid is a novel glucose


supplement designed to by-pass the rumen and boost blood glucose levels in early lactation. By safely providing high levels of energy in its most readily available form, excess mobilisation of body fat can be limited thus reducing strain on the liver. The liver can quickly become ‘choked’ with fat in early lactation and lead to the typical symptoms associated with fatty liver syndrome (ketosis) such as reduced intake, poor fertility and a slower return to positive energy balance. As well as providing a unique solution


to the energy gap in early lactation, Glucose Aid also incorporates specific biologically active additives that enhance the key


hormone signals required for improved fertility as well as aid liver function by helping it process and clean out excess fat deposits. As a glucose supplement, Glucose Aid


can be safely fed to post-calving cows in the first two to three weeks. Studies carried out with cows in early lactation showed that added fats generally had the effect of reducing feed intake in early lactation (Salfer et al 1995 Journal of Dairy Science) Figures from the DHHPS at Edinburgh


University from their blood test reports (released in August 2012) showed that up to 4% of cows in the first 50 days after calving had blood levels of BOHB (beta hydroxy butyrate) high enough to be diagnosed with clinical ketosis and up to 30% would be showing signs of sub clinical ketosis. Cows with clinical or more commonly,


sub-clinical ketosis will have decreased immunity leaving them more susceptible to fatty livers, metritis, mastitis, milk fever, staggers, displaced abomasums and infertility.
