MAXIMISING ENERGY AND NUTRIENT DIGESTIBILITY
GOLDSTAR 98 is produced when palm oil is fractioned for use in human food. The fatty acid profile shows a C16 content of 98%. In the rumen GOLDSTAR 98 is 'protected' from breakdown and therefore not utilized by the bacteria but absorbed by the animal.
Most high C16 products available to the dairy farmer have a content of around 85% palmitic acid (C1 with a content of 98% Goldstar 98 is able to provide substantially more C16:0 just when the cow needs it most.
The unusually high level of C16 in Goldstar 98 means that the cow is presented with a readily available supply of the major saturated fatty acid present in milk. This can have significant beneficial effect on butterfat levels and so farm profitability.
Goldstar 98 can be applied as a top dressing or as an ingredient in the feed mixture.
