ElenSis

Energy Reinvented

Energy management is a key success factor for ruminants. Elensis can help increase yields, butterfat, protein and DLWG.

Elensis is available in 25kg bags.

Energy management is a key success factor for ruminants, enhancing production and optimizing fertility.

In dairy cows, only 30-35% of the digestible energy is exported in the milk. A better use of energy helps to ensure the technical and economic performance of the farm, and also helps to limit the environmental impacts.

There are two sites of action for energy efficiency in the diet:

  1. Rumen : Better energy efficiency in the rumen causes an increase of volatile fatty acids (VFA’s). VFA’s are a major source of energy in the ruminant diet (up to 70%). The proportion in which they are produced determines the fat and protein content in milk. Energy efficiency in the rumen also causes an increase of propionate, which has been classified as the precursor to glycose synthesis in the ruminant digestive system.
  2. Gut : Better energy efficiency in the gut of the ruminant can improve absorption of nutrients allowing the ruminant to be more efficient in its production, as there will be less nutrient deficiencies.

ELENSIS can be used in different ways:

  • BALANCE the energy in the diet
  • SUBSTITUTE common additives
  • REFORMULATE with more competitive energy sources

Benefits

  • Improves milk yield
  • Increases butterfat
  • Improves rumen health & efficiency
  • Increases DLWG in beef cattle
  • Reduced methane production

Testimonial / Case Study

A study was carried out in AgroParisTech Research Centre (France) from March to June 2021 for a 10 week period. During this period the effects of Elensis on milk yield and protein levels were observed.

Energy corrected milk was significantly improved with the addition of Elensis to the diet of high yielding dairy cows  (+3%).

 

 

Milk fat content was significantly improved with the addition of Elensis to the diet of high yielding dairy cows (+ 4 %).

Why use farmgate nutrition?
