Liquid Feed Supplements for Feedlot Nutritional Management
QLF calcium supplements are manufactured using Xanthan Gum to achieve maximum suspension characteristics in every batch. Suspension is important to ensure that the desired nutrients and additives are evenly distributed through the supplement ensuring each animal receives the nutrition desired with every feeding.
Enhanced Precision Feeding
QLF supplements distribute evenly throughout the bunk allowing for more precise delivery of nutrients and additives to every animal. QLF liquid supplement handling systems also allow for more accurate delivery of supplement to every batch. QLF supplements are an ideal carrier for low inclusion additives and ionophores.
Complete Supplement Package
QLF provides a complete supplement package to the feedlot that is flexible enough to balance diets with a diverse range of feedstuffs.
Enhanced Diet Performance
QLF liquid supplements promote a consistent and predictable diet throughout the bunk with reduced sorting. Reduced sorting promotes a healthy rumen environment through consistent intake of all nutrients including roughage. Reduced sorting minimizes the incidence of subacute acidosis, maximizing rumen and animal performance.
Enhanced Rumen Performance
QLF liquid supplements are a preferred urea carrier to provide valuable rumen degradable protein to the diet. Diets balanced for rumen degradable protein promote rumen microbial efficiency, maximizing dry matter intake and overall animal performance.

- Micro Aid
- Celmanax· Liquid
Can QLF Feedlot products be fed free choice?
NO. Absolutely not. QLF feedlot products must be mixed in or top dressed on high grain rations for cattle weighing 600 pounds or more.
Will QLF Feedlot products pump in cold weather?
Yes, this is one thing that is unique about QLF products vs. the competition. We use products in Minnesota and North Dakota with minus 30 degrees or more with no pumping problems. However, do use reasonable precautions with set-up design.
Will QLF Starter products pump in cold weather?
Yes, but keep in mind the problem usually occurs in the line to the pump and/or in the pump. The cold air will penetrate the small areas such as the line much more quickly than the large volume of product in the storage tank.
Can QLF products be mixed in a tank with other products?
No. Storage tanks that have been used for competitor’s product should be cleaned before putting in ours. If there is a buildup of sludge in the tank from years past, and we put a good quality feed on top of it, problems could come from feeding the sludge.
What is the shelf life of QLF feedlot products?
We recommend turning inventory every 60 days or less. This is more important during the summer, since the heat inside storage tanks can cause added stress on the gums that suspend the ingredients.
What is the recommended procedure for adding our feedlot products to a TMR?
Load the corn first, then the liquid, and finally the roughage. This allows the liquid to be pre-mixed with the corn, which will in turn more easily mix with the roughage.
Will all the solid ingredients in a product like Beef Starter stay in suspension?
Yes. We do recommend turning inventory in a 60 day period.
