EnerGII is an American-made calcium salt of fatty acids that increases energy for milk production and improves body condition by boosting long chain fatty acid absorption in the small intestine. Providing 250% more energy than corn, EnerGII is highly digestible and delivers more milk with a little less intake. Virtus Nutrition uses proprietary manufacturing processes and a precise quality formulation for this efficient energy source to assure the consistency needed to decrease the inherent variability in diets and deliver the same efficient energy season in and season out.
