What are you trying to achieve?

Need

Feature

Benefit

Increase milk and meat yield

A very high content of digestible rumen bypass protein.

Allows the cow to meet its demands for DUP and maximise its efficiency.

Reduce feed costs

Allows performance to be maintained whilst reducing the rations overall protein content.

Ready to feed, easy storage

Dry, free flowing, meal.

Easily incorporated into the diet.

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

ProtoTec is manufactured from Rape Seed Meal at Goole in Yorkshire. Using a unique process, the Rape Seed Meal is subjected to gentle heat, as steam, under precise conditions of temperature and pressure. This process results in the protection of part of the protein fraction from rumen degradation, without affecting its overall digestibility. This process increases the undegradable fraction of the protein by over 50% as well as decreasing the level of anti-nutritional factors.

Quality Assurance

ProtoTec is a FEMAS-assured product and is marketed by KW Alternative Feeds a UFAS-accredited merchant.

Legal disclaimer

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.
