Dairy

Overview

Liquid Feed Supplements for Dairy

Liquid feed supplements are nutrient dense, and conveniently applied in TMR’s to enhance ration utilization by:

  • Stimulating rumen function
  • Improving fiber digestibility
  • Reducing ration sorting
  • Enhancing feed intake
  • Adding palatability

Liquid Feed Supplements for Lactating Cows

Liquid Feed Supplements provide rumen-available carbohydrate, through sugars, and protein from natural and non-protein nitrogen sources.

Using a liquid feed supplement in a lactation TMR to achieve optimal carbohydrate and degradable protein balance in the rumen helps enhance dry matter intake and milk production.

Liquid Feed Supplements for Dry Cows

Enhancing intake consistency during the dry period helps cows transition more smoothly into lactation. Liquid feed supplements are a palatable, nutritious method to enhance forage digestion and encourage dry matter intake during the dry period. In addition, liquid supplements can deliver and distribute needed micronutrients and additives in the ration, reducing ration separation and feeding losses.

Feed Supplements to Help Development of Heifers

QLF’s Heifer Developers are formulated to provide nutrients to meet growth goals and also to enhance development of:

  • the skeleton – (including the hoof) by providing highly available sources of calcium, phosphorus, trace minerals and vitamins.
  • the rumen – by encouraging intake and digestion of high forage diets by providing molasses and non-protein nitrogen to stimulate the growth of cellulose digesting microorganisms.

QLF Liquid feed supplements are nutrient dense, conveniently applied and an ideal medium to incorporate feed ingredients & additives like:

  • Fat
  • Vitamins
  • Trace minerals
  • Yeast cultures
  • Mold inhibitors
  • Ionophores

                        Frequently Asked Questions

                        Why should I feed sugar to my dairy cows?

                        Research shows the most profitable response to feeding sugar is a total diet level of 5-7% of ration Dry Matter.

                        Does QLF supplement prevent sorting?

                        QLF can be an essential part to reducing sorting in dairy diets.  QLF supplements stick small diet particles to larger ones.  Less sorting activity means better rumen efficiency and less feed waste.

                        Is it safe to feed sugar to dairy cows?

                        A cow’s rumen is designed to utilize sugar.  Until recently, sugar was a large portion of dairy cow rations.  The addition of sugar to modern TMR systems is a safe way to bring rapidly fermentable carbohydrates to the rumen.  Unlike starch, sugar does not lower the rumen pH, and keeps the rumen healthy.

                        Can I add anything else to QLF products?

                        QLF suspension technology allows a full complement of protein, additives, minerals and vitamins to be added to QLF liquid feeds.   A full list can be obtained from your local QLF representative.

                        Can I use QLF liquid supplements for dry cows?

                        QLF liquid supplements are a great addition for dry cow diets.  With high forage diets becoming the norm for dry cows, QLF supplements help in reducing sorting in these diets.  With QLF suspension technology, customized dry cow supplements can carry needed nutrition (minerals, vitamins and additives) for this group in a uniform package that is evenly distributed in the TMR.

                        Can I use QLF liquid supplements for heifers?

                        With QLF suspension technology, a full complement of minerals, vitamins and additives can be supplied to heifers.  Utilizing a liquid will ensure proper distribution and delivery to heifers.  QLF supplements can enhance intake of high forage diets that are typical in heifer groups.

                        If I live in the northern half of the US, do I need to worry about the QLF supplement freezing in the winter?

                        QLF products are designed to be fed 365 days a year without worry of freezing.  The unique combination of dry matter (55-65%), and additives allows these products to be outdoors throughout the year.

                        How is this liquid feed delivered to the dairy cattle?

                        On most dairies that utilize total mixed rations (TMRs), the QLF supplement can be added directly to the TMR.  Talk to your local QLF representative for proper installation of equipment.
