We stock and distribute a broad range of feed additives to optimise feed intake, feed productivity, physical development and animal performance.

Betaine

Vistabet Betaine

Vistabet is a natural source of betaine which is a functional nutrient with methyl donor and osmolyte capabilities. These capabilities enable Betaine to reduce feed costs and maintain water celluar balance. It is obtained through extraction from sugar beet molasses and supplied as a liquid application for pig and poultry feed rations.

Vistabet as a Methyl Donor:

  • Betaine can replace added Choline as well as the portion of methionine used as a methyl source. Replacement of Choline and methionine can reduce feed costs
  • Betaine is easy to use and mixes well in feed comparatively to choline
  • It is also less corrosive than Choline which helps maintain vitamin and mineral stability within a feed ration

Vistabet as an Osmolyte:

  • Betaine promotes increase of water composition in body cells and organs protecting from dehydration. This also allows more efficient conversion of energy which is used for growth
  • Betaine compounds may help minimize water loss in situations where cellular dehydration may occur
  • Betaine may also play a role in maintaining optimal gut health and intestinal integrity

Additional benefits:

  • Vistabet is highly soluble and flowable for feed production
  • Natural Betaine is heat stable up to 85ºC

For use in:

  • Pigs
  • Poultry

  • Usability: it can be used for consumption in concentrates, free choice lick supplements and compound feeds
  • Consistency: it is producted by a chemical reaction which ensures consistent nutrient content, granule size and solubility
  • High Bioavailability which makes it an ideal source of phosphorus and calcium

For use in:

  • Beef Cattle
Contact us for nutrient specifications, mode of action and pricing.

Additional Information:

The Importance of Phosphorus

Cattle need phosphorus (P) for almost every vital function of the body. It is used for building bones and teeth, metabolising fat, carbohydrates and protein, producing milk and for efficient feed utilisation. The problem of phosphorus deficiency arises because most soils in northern Australia are deficient in phosphorus and cattle cannot get sufficient P from the pasture. The animals that need phosphorus most are the young, which need it for their growing bones; first-calf heifers, which need it for growth, pregnancy and lactation; late pregnant breeders, which need it for the growing foetus; and wet cows, which need it for milk production.

Phosphorus deficiency results in:

  • Poor appetite, feed intake and growth
  • High breeder mortality, reduced fertility and milk production
  • Bone breakage and, in severe cases, bone deformities
Added to this poor performance is an increased risk of deaths from botulism when cattle chew bones in their craving for the mineral.

  • Palatability – Neutral taste to help ensure consistent feed intake
  • Handling properties – Free flowering and not irritant and not dusty
  • Particle size – Granules fits very well into mineral feed and the size does not negatively impact the digestibility due to high solubility
  • Consistency – Produced by a chemical reaction gives the same structure of each particle and same nutrient content and solubility

For use in:

  • Dairy Cows
  • Beef Cattle
  • Sheep

Contact us for nutrient specifications, mode of action and pricing.

Additional Information:

The Importance of Magnesium

Magnesium (Mg) is an essential nutrient for all animals, serving a variety of vital functions including normal appetite, production and reproduction. It is especially crucial for ruminants, in particular lactating dairy cows. Body stores of magnesium are highly unavailable for daily metabolic processes. Furthermore, ruminants lose magnesium in their milk, urine and digestive secretions.

Tetany in Ruminants

The absence of adequate Mg in the diet can often result in grass tetany (more commonly known as “staggers”). Although grass tetany is complex and can be caused by an array of animal, climate and management factors, magnesium deficiency is also associated with the disorder.

Staggers is most common in cattle grazing on lush spring pastures that contain high levels of nitrogen and potassium. Winter tetany is a less common form of the disorder, occurs with the consumption of poor quality, magnesium–deficient forages such as dormant winter pastures. Poor quality hay, straw, and weathered forages can also be magnesium deficient.

Lactating cows are most susceptible to grass tetany, especially in the immediate few weeks after calving. Higher magnesium requirements associated with milk production is what drives the predisposition of lactating cows to grass tetany. The disorder can also affect dry cows, calves, beef cattle and sheep. Magnesium deficiency is also a function of age, with the incidence of grass tetany generally increasing as animals become older.

Additional Information:

The Role of Choline in Diary Cows

  • Choline can be classified as a B vitamin and an essential component and a necessary component for fat transport in the body
  • Choline can often be in short supply and for a supplementary feed source to be effective it must be in a form which is protected from rumen fermentation

Transition Period for Modern Dairy Cows

Managing nutrition during the four week period before and after calving is the most crucial period for productivity. Lead feeding programs over this transition period are designed to help the cow adapt from being dry to producing large quantities of milk. During transition and after calving, large quantities of body fat are mobilized. This helps cows to overcome the negative energy balance created by reduced feed intake and high milk output.

Rumifats

Rumifat R100 and Rumifat Plus Calcium Soap are a rumen stable fat products for supplementing energy requirements of dairy cows.

Benefits and Features:

  • Rumifat R100 is produced from physical fractionation of palm oil and contains a high concentration of rumen stable energy
  • Rumifat Plus Calcium Soap is produced from a chemical reaction in which fatty acids from palm oil are reacted with calcium to for a calcium soap
  • Both products are designed specifically so that the fat is passed through the rumen without being fermented to the small intestine where it is absorbed

For use in:

  • Dairy Cows

Contact us for nutrient specifications and pricing.

Additional Information:

Many high producing dairy cows are affected by negative energy balance during the early lactation period. Energy requirement s are not easily satisfied, in comparison to other nutrients. Fat contains approximately 2.25 times as much energy than typical cereal grains. Alike any supplementary feed source, fats will be more effective if they are rumen stable.

Stress factors and Feed intake challenges

In many situations full genetic potential cannot be fulfilled because of low or inconsistent feed intake. Throughout their growth cycle, animals can be subject to different causes of stress such as:

  • Rapid diet change
  • Changes in feed formulation due to fluctuating raw material use and quality
  • Housing conditions
  • High temperatures or other climatic conditions
Under these conditions, animals tend to reduce feed consumption, which in turn reduces performance. Flavours can be used to counteract these issues through improving feed palatability and encouraging intake. Accordingly this optimises animal performance.
