Maxicrop Seaweed Meal…
Increases milk production and in some cases butterfat content.   Improves fertility, possibly related to the level of tocopherol,  and lower incidence of mastitis.  Supports an active intestinal flora in the animal’s gut. Mannitol and other chelating agents also improve nutrient utilisation.

This helps…
Build resistance to disease by ensuring a complete balance of micronutrients.   Stock to assimilate organic trace elements more readily than they can from synthetic forms.   Increase herd performance by improving nutrient availability.  Provide essential roughage, maintaining healthy intestinal activity

RESEARCH
In Norwegian work, total milk yield was 6% higher in dairy cows fed 3% Ascophyllum nodosum in a fortified seaweed meal, over a 7 year period.

The test concluded that the fortified seaweed meal was superior to the standard mineral mixtures for milk production.

Mastitis was markedly reduced; the number of services needed before conception also decreased; and there was a marked increase in the iodine content of the milk.     Trials at the Institute of Animal Husbandry at the University of Giessen, West Germany, confirmed an increase in number and durability of live semen in bulls.
