Is suppresses dust at very low inclusion rates. Normally only a 1% inclusion is all that is required to suppress dust. Less dust has the following tangible benefits:
Removes cow respiratory health issues (e.g. pneumonia) caused by feed dust inhalation.
Less wastage as it reduces the feed blown out of in-shed feed troughs.
Largely eliminates eye irritation in the dairy shed for staff.
No build-up of feed on feed auger systems (compared to molasses for example). This reduces time consuming unblocking and cleaning of in-shed feed systems and silos.
Less wear of feed systems motors and augers due to the lubricating effect of oil.
Oil is one of the highest energy feed sources available. It has a ME of 37kJ/kg DM. Added at 1% of the feed lifts ME by an average of 1.25MJ/kg DM.
Adding oil to blends reduce the possibility of feed separation, especially finer minerals, during transport and silo storage.
Due to the special application method used in the Nutrinza blending process, the oil is thoroughly mixed in the feed. The feed stays dry.
On a DM and ME basis it offers better value for money compared to PKE/Molasses mixes currently available in the market.
Due to the lower sugar and higher dry matter % the shelf life of blends containing oil is longer than blends containing molasses.
Dust suppression in blends is achieved at an inclusion rate of only 1%.
Slightly higher inclusion rates can be considered for blends containing very dusty products or have a higher than normal mineral inclusion.
