Immediately after calving or lambing, all cattle and sheep have a greater requirement for glucose to meet the demand of milk production. Without a sufficient store of glucose in their system, they will naturally metabolise ketones as a source of energy, increasing the risk of a negative energy balance and a state of ketosis.

SUPERKETO™ is a multi-functional plant-based propylene glycol drench offering a greener strategy to limiting the prevalence and severity of ketosis in dairy cows, beef cattle and sheep. The drench works quickly to offer a targeted and continuous hit of energy to highly productive ruminants in early lactation, whilst also supporting immunity and liver functions.

SUPERKETO™ offers a syrup of complex sugars and oligosaccharides that together feed rumen bugs whilst also bypassing the rumen into the intestine for rapid and progressive absorption to effectively support blood sugar levels.

The drench also contains plants-based agents to aid liver function, stimulate digestion and ingestion, and optimise ruminal function whilst protecting intestinal integrity.

FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS

Available in 5/25/200-litre drums or 1000-litre IBC’s.

Suitable to feed through robots.

 

KETOSIS EXPLAINED:

 

x spot

The demand for glucose doubles after birth, sending the animal into a compromised metabolic state if glucose reserves are not there.

x spot

The cow will metabolise fat in the body, increasing the ketones
in the blood and causing a negative
energy balance.

x spot

With increased ketones, inflammatory levels in the body increase and cause immunosuppression and can also reduce dry matter intakes (DMI).

x spot

Immunosuppression and lower DMI will make the cow more susceptible to metritis, mastitis, displaced abomasum, and fertility challenge.
