Spring Starter Dairy Pellets

Our Sgt Dan Spring Starter Dairy Pellets are designed to help cows with the particularly stressful location period. Proper management of cows in early lactation to help maximise intake and minimise body condition loss will help to set cows up for productive lactation.

These pellets provide a source of high-quality rumen bypass protein. This comes from soya and canola to encourage milk production. They also include New Zealand-grown grains, which provide a valuable source of carbohydrates that supply energy from both rumen microbes and the cow.

Ensuring adequate intake of macro and trace minerals in early lactation is essential to minimise the incidence of metabolic disease. Sgt Dan Spring Starter Dairy Pellets are formulated to provide added calcium, magnesium, sodium and a range of trace minerals. Added chromium is included to help improve the efficiency of glucose utilisation by cells and to help support feed intake in early lactation.
