NovaPro is a high energy, hot pressed rumen protected rapeseed expeller supplying similar quantity of rumen bypass protein as hi-pro soya with a significantly higher energy content (~10%) than rape seed meal due to higher retained rumen friendly oil.
The by-pass protein is of higher digestibility than that within other rumen protected rape seed meal based products as it is not subjected to hexane solvent extraction that reduces digestibility.

What are you trying to achieve?




Drive intakes

An excellent source of high quality rumen bypass protein, of superior and matched amino acid profile to milk protein, compared to soya, in a palatable form

Ruminants will increase intake to provide energy to match the superior supply of amino acids in NovaPro (the building blocks of

protein) compared to soya.

Reduce feed costs

Allows performance to be maintained while reducing the overall protein content saving feed costs

Increase milk yield

Allows the cow to maximise milk production by meeting its demand for DUP and improve protein efficiency

Reduce reliance on soya bean meal

Very similar DUP content as hi-pro soya meal

Allows a dairy and growing rations to reduce or remove hi-pro soya saving feed costs

Flexibility in feeding

Dry and free-flowing meal

Simplifies feeding and storage

The predicted responses (benefits) assume that the specified nutrient, physical or structural dietary components are limiting livestock performance in the current ration.

Additional information

Method of production

NovaPro is produced at a new state of the art rapeseed expelling facility, where whole rape seeds are heated and pressed to expel the oil, after which the residual cake is treated using a unique and safe patented process which increases the level of rumen bypass protein. The process takes advantage of naturally occurring wood sugars which, when mixed with the rapeseed cake under gentle steam treatment, binds to part of the protein, protecting it from degradation in the rumen.

During production of NovaPro, careful process control procedures ensure that the proteins become highly rumen undegradable but retain, post rumen, high intestinal digestibility, similar to untreated soya bean meal. Hexane solvent, which has been shown to reduce protein digestibility, is not used in the manufacturing of NovaPro. Unlike conventional rapeseed extract where hexane is applied during the recovery phase of the process.

Quality Assurance

NovaPro is a FEMAS assured (or a recognised equivalent) fully traceable, product, marketed by Trident Feeds – a UFAS accredited merchant. NovaPro is listed under Rapeseed expeller feed number 2.14.6 in the EU Catalogue of Feed Materials.

Suggested feeding rates are produced as a guide only and many other factors may have an overriding effect on animal response; no performance guarantee can be given. Rations should be carefully balanced for energy and protein, contain sufficient forage to maintain rumen function and be fortified with an appropriate vitamin and mineral supplement. Animals must have constant access to clean water.
