Dairy Compounds Carrs Billington’s dairy compounds range from 14 to 21% protein with different rumen by pass protein fractions, choices of energy density and energy sources. G Factor formulation of our diets ensures that the cow can produce the optimum amount of glucose she needs. We have 3 different vitamin and mineral packages available, depending upon your requirements, and other additives include Techtonic®, AminoMax protected proteins, fats, yeasts, organic trace elements and biotin.
Our summer range is more biased towards lower protein products to complement diets based on the inclusion of grazed grass, whereas in winter there are a higher proportion of higher protein brands. “A feed for every need” – Whether you are looking to improve performance and or milk quality, reduce the risk of acidosis, increase forage intake, reduce nutrient wastage or want a product designed for robots / VMS and or out of parlour feeders we can help.
AminoMax-Pro is our preferred high DUP (Digestible Undegradable Protein) feed material, manufactured using natural ingredients rather than being formaldehyde treated. The patented AminoMax process improves the DUP content of both soya and rape by heating them in the presence of sugar and steam. Sugars bind to the protein and block digestion in the rumen. Acid in the abomasum then releases the protein from the sugar allowing full digestion and absorption of essential amino acids
Dairy Blends – “Flexibility, quality and consistency” Every Carrs Billington blending facility has the flexibility to make whatever you want from the range of raw materials in stock – in other words a Bespoke Blend. There is a standard range of Ration Balancer Blends for use in feeder wagons or to be fed as a mid-day feed. These have a wide choice of protein and energy levels but a Bespoke Blend can give you more precision with no extra manufacturing cost. Nutty Blends are made with various nuts and pellets to suit parlour and out of parlour feeders where less meal and dust is required. The raw materials purchased and blends produced undergo the same rigorous testing and quality control procedures as if manufactured in one of our feed mills which is a major advantage over using straights that can vary considerably from load to load.
