GlycoPass is a highly palatable energy source.
Designed by our in-house cattle nutritionists GlycoPass aims to increase fertility and conception rates, as well as improve forage intakes and butterfat and protein levels.
“We have been feeding GlycoPass for a few years now. It has improved conception rates and milk solids in our high-yielding herd.”
FarmGate have been working with us since 2007, over this time herd performance has consistently improved by increasing milk yield, milk solids and milk-from-forage. This has helped improve our overall farm efficiency alongside our busy ice-cream business.
By working with FarmGate the performance of our robot herd has improved dramatically in that time via increased milk yield per cow and higher milk-from-forage. Working alongside our vet and fertility team this has improved our herd profitability and long-term future.
Guiness Farms have been feeding GlycoPass for a number of years now and have seen a significant improvement in our pregnancy rate due to increasing blood glucose levels in the herd.
We use GlycoPass through the liquid feeders on our robots to target our early lactation and higher-yielding cows. It has helped to improve cow visits to the robots and sustain milk yields.
