NovaPass-R

NovaPass R is a high-quality rumen protected protein

NovaPass R has been proven to increase milk yields and protein levels in dairy cows as well as DLWG in beef cattle.

NovaPass R is available in 25kg bags.

NovaPass R is a source of high energy rumen by-pass protein. A high proportion of protein consumed by ruminants is degraded in the rumen and therefore cannot be utilised by the animal. Feeding excessive protein can lead to poor animal health by inflating urea levels in the blood and milk. NovaPass R mitigates this by increasing the level of DUP (Digestible Undegraded Protein) and achieving the metabolizable protein requirements. This boosts performance and reduces wastage by reducing the amount of rumen degradable protein (RDP) fed in the diet.

NovaPass R is the result of a two-stage treatment which increases the level of DUP in the diet. This allows the majority of the protein in the diet to bypass the rumen and be utilised efficiently in the small intestine. Therefore, the diet is balanced to the optimum metabolizable protein requirement based on yield and expected performance, rather than basing it on traditional crude protein requirements.

Numerous studies and research have proven the benefits of supplementing the pre calving diet with high levels of by-pass protein. It helps ease the transition from the pre-calving diet to the lactating cow diet by building the protein reserves and encouraging increased feed intakes. This reduces the Negative Energy Balance which produces higher milk yields and milk protein alongside increased fertility.

Improving rumen health by meeting ruminants’ metabolizable protein requirements increases performance in beef cattle. Higher DLWG and improved Kill Out percentages have been observed in the diets of beef cattle which are supplemented with by-pass protein.

Research has also found benefits of supplementing pregnant ewes with protein in the last 4 weeks pre lambing. The higher DUP level in the diet increases Dry Matter Intake and improves colostrum quality and quantity.

NovaPass R can be incorporated into a compound feed or blend OR can be fed through a TMR direct on farm.
