Feeding Recommendations

EnerGII can be fed at a wide range of feeding rates and to various groups of cows depending upon the dairy\’s current feeding strategies and performance goals.

Getting Started

Goal:  Keeping outside feed costs to the minimum necessary.


Getting Started:  Feed .5 pound EnerGII in the fresh and/or high pens

If this is your first time feeding bypass fat at your dairy, adding EnerGII at .5 pound in the fresh pen is a great place to start. The additional energy from EnerGII plays a crucial role in start-up performance, giving her the energy she needs early lactation to support both milk and reproduction.

Ultimately, EnerGII provides the most consistent source of fatty acids in your dairy cows\’ diet.  These fatty acids are rumen protected to enhance fatty acid absorption at the small intestine and improve production efficiency.  Please consult your nutritionist for guidance on the feeding rate that works best for your management and current feeding strategy.

Protect Your Embryos

Early pregnancy losses are substantial with 67% viable embryos by day 6 after ovulation. Avoid unnecessary pregnancy loss by providing your cows with the essential nutrients needed for healthy embryo development and survival.
