Overview

Liquid Feed Supplements for Pasture Cattle

QLF offers a full line of molasses-based protein supplements for beef cows and stocker cattle. Customers realize the ultimate convenience and time- and labor-savings when QLF products are fed free-choice in lick wheel feeders. Management goals of other operations are best met with direct forage treatment or inclusion of QLF liquid feed supplements in bunk mixes.

Lick Tanks

  • Several small meals over the course of the day
  • Opportunity for less dominant animals to come to the feed unchallenged
  • Virtually no waste
  • Intake can change as conditions dictate
  • Diverse animals in a herd can match intake to individual needs.

Liquid Feed for Treating Forages

Applying QLF directly to forages can enhance the utilization of harvested roughages.

  • Treating Large Round Bales
    Dispersing liquid feed supplements throughout a big bale will significantly enhance the nutritional value AND palatability of hay, straw, or stalks. Simply pour on, or probe into, the face of the bale. Application rate is typically 7-10%, by weight.
  • At the bale processor
    Mounting a tank and pump directly on the processor allows addition of QLF to the hay as it is fed. Additional benefits include dust reduction, and ability to deliver forage and supplement in a single trip.

QLF Liquids in Bunk Mixes

QLF liquids in mixed diets offer nutrition . . . and more.

  • Diet Uniformity. When liquid feed supplements are included in a total mixed ration, ingredients with varied particle size and density are held in place. And trace nutrients and additives contained in the QLF are distributed evenly throughout the ration.
  • Reduced Animal Sorting.
  • Improved Ration Characteristics. QLF liquid supplements tie up fines, reduce dustiness, and increase ration density.
  • Increased Palatability.
  • Convenience. QLF liquids can meet any or all supplemental needs with a single easy-to-incorporate product. Liquid feed supplements offer ease of application and storage simplicity.
  • Cost Savings.

Low Moisture Blocks

QLF Ignite Low Moisture Blocks are convenient and easy-to-use to make certain your livestock are getting what they need-when they need it.

  • Controlled, Consistent Consumption
  • High Energy/Nutrient Dense
  • Vitamin & Mineral Fortified
  • Highly Palatable
  • Increased Forage Digestion
  • Weather Resistant

Frequently Asked Questions

How does feeding supplement increase the utilization of my forage?

The first limiting nutrient in most forage diets is protein, in particular ruminally degradable protein (DIP). Once this essential nutrient is supplied to the microbes, via protein supplementation, they are able to grow, multiply, and break down fiber at an increased rate. As their population and activity level grow, they are able to process additional forage, leading to increased intake (often 30-40% with low quality forage, and approximately 10% with moderate quality hays). Additionally, the forage (fiber) they do breakdown is fermented more thoroughly, allowing greater “digestion” and energy yield from each unit of forage consumed.

Do cows need supplemental by-pass protein?

One of the primary goals of cowherd supplementation is to increase utilization of low-cost forages. The boost in intake seen with protein supplementation is due to an increased nitrogen supply to the rumen, making degradable crude protein (DIP) sources more effective than undegraded (“by-pass” or UIP)) protein. This strategy allows the cows to meet their needs from forage and DIP supplementation, and supplies the animals with a very high-quality protein source in the form of bacterial cell proteins.

Should fat be fed to cows?

While high levels of dietary fat can cause problems with palatability, fiber digestion, and scouring, moderate levels (up to 5% of dietary dry matter intake) may offer some specific benefits to beef cows at the critical points in their production cycle.

Why would I use organic trace minerals for beef cows?

The organic forms (e.g., proteinates and chelates) of the essential trace minerals are more available to the animal, and when mineral supply is critical (i.e., late gestation and early lactation of high-producing animals, especially if they are under stress) this improved bioavailability may be worth the extra cost.

Will feeding QLF supplements have a "negative associative" effect on fiber digestion?

“Negative associative effects” most commonly seen with beef cows involve the feeding of moderate levels of grain. The net result of adding this much starch to a high-forage diet is a shift in microbial population, reduced fiber intake, and impaired fiber digestion. But the soluble energy source in our products is sugar, which has been shown to complement fiber digestion – IF adequate degradable protein is provided – rather than act against it.

How much will they eat?

Actual consumption rates will vary depending on forage type, quality, and availability; weather and facility conditions; and, cow condition and management. However, once animals are acclimated to the lick tank, consumption should be reasonably predictable and consistent for a given time of year and stage of production.
