Prevent Ketosis in cows and fatty liver cow problems
ProGlyc® is a group of energy supplying products based on the active ingredient: mono propylene glycol (MPG). Many use MPG as a common manual ketosis treatment in cattle with bovine ketosis. However this results in a strongly reduced DMI. MPG, a glucose precursor, is very effective in the supply of blood glucose to dairy cows, goats and sheep. Especially in the close up-, fresh- and early lactation groups the ruminants are deficient in glucose. As a result of their high energy demand, the ruminants start to mobilize body fat to meet their energy demand. This sudden change to fat metabolization causes problems. These can result in ketosis in cows, fatty liver cow problems, non-optimal milk production, fertility problems etc.
Subclinical ketosis in dairy cows
Subclinical ketosis in dairy cows can be found in 30-50% of all dairy cows. Not only does subclinical ketosis in dairy cattle cause health issues, but also high economical losses. Often, a ketosis treatment in cattle is only used when the dairy cows are clinically diagnosed with bovine ketosis. However, subclinical ketosis in dairy cows is very common. It is causing various health problems and leaving you with economical losses. We designed ProGlyc so that it can be mixed into mineral supplements, pelleted feed and TMR. Also it can be topdressed. This way you can prevent (sub)clinical ketosis in ruminants. So you can improve your milk yield and reduce doctors costs.
ProGlyc, Mode of Action
ProGlyc 55 is a dry palatable propylene glycol (in powder and pellet form). It supplies the extra energy a cow needs. This is important at the end of the dry period and during the first 100 days of lactation. ProGlyc 55 is metabolized differently. Therefore it is transformed into glucose much faster than fat and fatty acids. The fat concentration and keton bodies in the blood are reduced and the liver is spared. This has a positive effect on milk production, fertility and health. ProGlyc 55 gives high producing dairy cows a good start. Prevent problems after calving and “slow starters”.
