Protein supplement claims extra yield

INCREASE milk yields and milk protein levels with Rumanine – a high protein supplement, claims its Preston-based manufacturer Bamber.

It cites milk protein increases of up to 0.5% when 1kg of Rumanine is fed as part of a correctly balanced diet.

The compound contains crude and by-pass protein, and Smartamine as a source of the amino-acid methionine. 1kg of Rumanine supplies the required Smartamine daily intake of 12g a day.

Bamber says that the 36% crude protein, high energy compound is ideal for high yielding cows when dietary protein is low. The product costs £370 a tonne for bag deliveries (01772-257051).
