Propel® Energy Nugget - Introducing a new, highly-palatable, high-energy fat product specially formulated to be used as a nutritional supplement for lactating and post-fresh dairy ration called Propel® Energy Nugget. To produce this product Land O'Lakes Purina Feed developed a proprietary Macro-Encapsulation™ Technology. This is just one of the reasons Propel® Energy Nugget is different from all other high energy supplements on the market today.

Propel® Energy Nugget is backed by Land O'Lakes Purina Feed's decades of energy nugget experience, research, and innovation. By the end of January 2009, Propel® Energy Nugget will be available nationwide in a variety of Purina dairy products.

EXT Nugget Technology Definition  - Purina has a unique patented technology to pack more energy into every mouthful of dairy feed. Purina’s EXT is the result of an exclusive manufacturing process that enables us to produce a high energy, nutrient dense nugget. Each EXT Nugget is a highly concentrated, digestible, nutrient package that allows direct incorporation of dietary lipids (fat) into milk lipids, without disrupting ruminal metabolism. When dairies add EXT products to their rations, it makes the most nutrient-dense dairy feed available.

MetaPro™ Complete Lactation Feeds - Take advantage of ten years of research to ensure that the cow's metabolizable protein requirements are met.  MetaPro products can deliver increased milk yield, more predictable performance, lower feed costs, and reduce urinary nitrogen up to 29% which is better for the environment. The MetaPro complete lactation feeds contain the grain, protein, vitamin and mineral portion of the diet.

MetaPro™ Technology Definition - Our MetaPro™  brand lactation rations with harder working protein.  MetaPro™  is a high quality protein that is protected from being digested in the rumen.  Instead, the protein is digested down the line in the small intestine where it can actually impact milk production.  The MetaPro™ Nutrition system balances for metabolizable lysine, which is often not adequate in diets that are high in by-product feeds such as distillers grains.  Cows fed a diet containing MetaPro™ Nutrition reduced urinary nitrogen excretions up to 29% while maintaining the same milk yield.

Ten years of ingredient and cow requirement research have gone into developing MetaPro™ Nutrition to provide dairy producers with more accurate protein feeding and more predictable performance.

MetaPro™  Delivers:

  • Increased Milk Income
  • More Predictable Performance
  • Lower Feed Costs
  • Better For The Environment
  • Harder Working Protein
