State of the art
Many dairy cows suffer from subclinical ketosis. This means they suffer from health problems and reduced milk yield, however not enough to be clinically noticed or diagnosed. At Kimtec International, we develop and produce quality feed additives and supplements, which enables farmers and dairy consultants to treat their dairy cows themselves, in a safe and correct manner. Our feed additives and supplements are specifically designed for high producing dairy cows. Kimtec International aims to realize the supply of economically feasible additives and supplements with which the health of dairy cows is guaranteed and feeding costs will be reduced.
Preventing subclinical ketosis and abomasum displacement by using ProGlyc 55®
Although many dairy cows suffer from subclinical ketosis (health problems and reduced milk yield), it often happens that they do not show symptoms clear enough to be clinically noticed or diagnosed. Only a small part of these cows will reach clinical ketosis and will be treated. However, a sick cow costs far more than any benefits it offers. That is something we can help you with at Kimtec International. By developing and producing quality feed additives and supplements, we try to support and improve the animal health and reduce feeding costs, all at once. Our products, for example ProGlyc 55®, help initiate a positive effect on animal health, for example in preventing subclinical ketosis and abomasum displacement. Using ProGlyc 55® as a prophylaxis will greatly reduce or eliminate the number of incidences of ketosis and will increase dry matter intake after calving, which will lead to an increase in milk (protein) production of approximately 8%. Next to that, ProGlyc 55® offers a way of preventing abomasum displacement, which can happen as a result of ketosis. Therefore, it is beneficial for dairy cows in subclinical ketosis and those with clinical ketosis.
