Protected Fats

The range of NWF Protected Fats have been developed to help lactating cows that require energy for milk production, reproduction and growth.  If insufficient energy is provided the cow will lose unacceptable amounts of weight compromising milk yield and fertility.  This can also lead to risk of metabolic disorders such as ketosis and acidosis.

Protected fats are one of the richest sources of energy for the lactating dairy cow.  Fat has a 250% higher energy value than the carbohydrates provided by cereals and forages.  They represent the best opportunity for fulfilling the huge energy demands of todays high yielding dairy cows.
