Mega-Max™ is the new multi-purpose fat supplement for dairy cows and other ruminants developed by Volac Wilmar. Mega-Max™ is the new multi-purpose fat supplement for dairy cows and other ruminants developed by Volac Wilmar Feed Ingredients to improve milk yield, milk fat, fertility and body condition score throughout lactation.
Mega-Max™ is the new supplement in the Megalac® range of rumen-protected fats, based on the latest scientific research on feeding fats to dairy cows. Fat supplements differ depending on the type of fatty acid building blocks they contain and this is the key factor determining the effects of a product when included in a diet.
Mega-Max™ is uniquely-formulated with a specific balance of C16:0 and C18:1 fatty acids to achieve performance benefits through the whole lactation. It combines these fatty acids in the ratio determined to be most effective in the critical early lactation period, balancing milk production and body condition.
In later stages of lactation, Mega-Max™ supplies C16:0 to increase milk fat and C18:1 to improve fertility, offering dairy farmers an ideal one-product solution to fat supplementation for their herds.
Recent research at Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC; Crichton Royal Farm, UK) has demonstrated the benefits of supplementing the diet of early lactation dairy cows with Mega-Max™.
