How does Nutrimaize work

Nutrimaize has been developed for use as a major supplier of ERDP in dairy diets based mostly on maize silage or other low protein forages. It combines the ease and cost effectiveness of a liquid feed with the high nutrient density required in modern dairy diets.

The protein contained in NutriMaize is derived mainly from Bonded Urea. This is manufactured by a unique process which involves the bonding of urea to individual glucose molecules. This greatly increases the resistance to enzyme attack, thus avoiding the sudden, excessive release of ammonia associated with non-bonded urea.

Bonded Urea is broken down slowly enough for the rumen microbes to make use of it. Therefore a phased release of nutrients is achieved which provides rumen microbes with a steady supply of both protein (ERDP) and energy (FME) to manufacture microbial protein for the cow's use.

To provide full flexibility on-farm NutriMaize is available as either a 28, 46 or 66% protein liquid.

The bonding process

The process of bonding requires a source of sugar as a base, making cane molasses the natural choice. The urea is added and bonds to glucose molecules using a precise combination of heat, time and acidity. The mix is then normalised leaving Bonded Urea in stable form in the liquid.

Trial Work

Trials have shown that Nutrimaize 46 can be used to replace a soya/rape mix 1:1, with increased forage intakes and improved milk quality and, importantly, no increase in milk ureas (Rodbaston College).
