Don't Risk Feed Intake

May 20, 2021

Hot summer days have finally made their appearance and with that comes potential for heat stress resulting in decreased milk production in lactating dairy cows, lower feed intakes and lower pregnancy rates. Decreased feed intake can be caused by increased fermentation in our feedstuffs causing growth of molds and yeasts resulting in decreased palatability of TMR once it hits the feed bunk. This is where UC TMR Stabilizer comes into play.

Keep a Watchful Eye On:
  • Temperature
  • Moisture
  • Oxygen
  • Energy

How do these negatively contribute to feed fermentation?

It takes less than one pound of milk to pay for treated TMR

TMR Stabilizer comes in dry and liquid forms. Typical cost of treatment is about 10-12 cents/cow/day. 

It is important to remember that the best method for control of yeast growth is at the bunker when storing feed, however TMR Stabilizer does provide a significant return on investment by controlling yeast and mold growth. This aids in extending the bunk life and preserving freshness of the feed resulting in consistency of palatability in the ration.
