Dairy Cow Protein Products

QLF’s protein supplements contain various levels of QLF’s ‘Timed-Release‘ protein and are ideal in rations needing either high levels of supplemental protein or sources of soluble protein, where other ration protein sources are high by-pass. These products help to increase rumen efficiency by supplying rumen micro-organisms with a constant supply of energy and non-protein nitrogen.

QLF’s ‘Timed-Release‘ protein is unique as the protein source is bonded and releases over a similar time period to soya. This is different from other protein liquids on the market.

Super Range

QLF’s flagship protein products were originally developed by QLF in the U.S.A over 30 years ago. They are designed to improve the performance of lactating dairy cows, sucklers, dry cows cows and beef. QLF Super 40 is used as a supplemental source of quality protein and energy, and includes rumen optimised vitamins and trace minerals.
