FibreProTM is a highly weatherproof protein, mineral and vitamin supplement for all classes of cattle.
FibreProTM contains a slow release protein that simulates the effect that lupins or soybean meal have in the rumen. Additionally, FibrePro has trace minerals that are equally important for maintaining appetite.
Supplementing non-protein nitrogen (NPN) to livestock grazing mature pasture or crop has many benefits:
The secret to FibreProTM is Biuret, a sustained release non-protein nitrogen.
Biuret is a poly-urea compound that breaks down slowly in the rumen.
Independent university trials show that Biuret breaks down in the rumen at similar rates to soybean meal (see graph right).
FibreProTM and its ingredients are more efficiently captured by rumen microbes; which means the rumen is working harder to digest forage.
FibreProTM is part of the WeatherPro® range. WeatherPro® weatherised minerals provide significant advantages over powder type licks and blocks.
Another advantage of including Biuret in the FibreProTM products is that it has a sustained release rate, which prevents a build-up of ammonia in the blood and drastically reduces urea toxicity risk.
