Effect of XVET’s Turbo Gain on lactating cows
Type of trial: Field trial
Location of trial: located near the city of Kenitra – Morocco
Trial period: 18 days (April 2020)
Experimented animals: 1000 Holstein cow heads
Trial aim: Assess the effect of XVET Turbo Gain against market competitors on lactating cows milk yield.
Genetic potential for milk production has increased dramatically, in addition to that, management and nutrition play an important role in terms of lactation productivity. Feed additives are ingredients that can be added to the feed of animals in small quantities to improve the health and production parameters, and in case of dairy cows also to improve daily milk yield.
Material and methods:
Turbo Gain was compared against Competitor A composed by a mineral adsorbent and yeast wall while competitor B is formulated with yeast , calcium carbonate and dried yeast. Turbo gain is a mixture of yeast , calcium carbonate, dried yeast and acids that help to improve production parameters from different approaches.
During the trial some parameters were observed and recorded:
- General status of the cows
- Condition of the cows
The animals used for testing were separated inside the breeding area in herds of multiparous cows depending on the age of the animals and the products used during field trial.
The daily milk production was recorded 4 days before the administration of Turbo Gain, adding a total observation period of 22 days.
As seen in the chart below the administration of Turbo Gain increased the average milk production (l) during 20 days of the trial between 1.30 to over 2 liters of milk in comparison to competitors A and B.
It is concluded that after administrating Turbo Gain at a dose of 100 g / cow, the overall health and feed consumption of the cows improved rapidly. Lactation and milk yield have improved as well reaching higher milk production than both competitors during field trials.
