The Essential Nutrient for Smooth Starts… let’s take a look at the research that shows why.
Reduced NEFA Levels After Calving •
When Prequel is fed at ¼ lb. for 21 days prior to calving, NEFA levels are significantly reduced in those first critical weeks post-calving.
• Prequel • EnerGII
NEFA levels above 800 indicate ketosis

More Fertilized Structures ••
The University of Florida also found a higher percentage of fertilized structures, leading to higher first service conception.
More High Quality Embryos ••
Prequel improves embryo quality by raising the plane of nutrition and health in the pre-fresh period.
* P<0.11 ** P<0.06
Higher First Service Conception ••
Prequel Omega-6s improve early conception and help cows return to cycling faster.

Improved Conception Rates •••
While Prequel improves 1st service, there are additional gains to be found by feeding Strata with Omega-3s in early lactation.
