What is Nutrimaize 40
- Combination of high protein and sugars
- Contains bonded urea for regulated protein release
- Protein suplement for maize silage
- Improves forage intakes
- Dairy 1.0 - 2.0 kg/head/day
- Youngstock 0.5 - 1.5 kg/head/day
- Beef 0.5 - 1.5 kg/head/day
The actual feeding level will depend on the quality and quantity
of other dietary constituents and the performance level required.
As with all feeding stuffs, introduce gradually over 7-14 days
to rumination livestock.
Nutrimaize 28 or Nutrimaize
46 be offered in complete diet feeders, forage boxes or simply
poured over the forage. Please seek nutritional advice before
feeding in a diet that contains Grass Silage
Limits to Usage

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
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.
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
