Nutrimaize 66

Nutrimaize 66 is suitable for inclusion in the diets of all ruminant livestock and can offer a very effective way to increase the palatability of feeds whilst contributing high levels of energy from sugars.

What is Nutrimaize 66

  • High protein and high sugars
  • High technology bonded urea.
  • Urea released at a safe rate in the rumen.
  • Versatile can be used in dairy, beef & sheep diets
  • Easy to handle at low temperatures

Feeding Guidelines

  • Dairy 0.5 - 1.25 kg/head/day
  • Youngstock 0.25 -1.0 kg/head/day
  • Beef 0.25 -1.0 kg/head/day
  • Sheep 0.05 - 0.08 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.

Due to the very high nutrient density of Nutrimaize 66 it should only be used as part of a mixed ration (TMR) to ensure adequate mixing with other feeds.

How does Nutrimaize work

Nutrimaize is a revolutionary high protein liquid feed based on pure cane molasses and Bonded Urea. This combination of tradition with technology provides a valuable ingredient for maize silage based diets.

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.

Ideal as a maize balancer or for diets based on whole crop wheat. The high nutrient density of Nutrimaize 66 is designed to make it perfect for very high yielding cows. This allows sufficient nutrients to be supplied in a relatively small volume. This unique process of bonding together molecules of sugar and urea gives a phased release of energy and protein sources for rumen microbes to utilise.

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).
