These QLF products are designed to condition the ration by coating all of the components of a TMR. By reducing the physical separation of the ration when mixing and feeding, this helps to deliver a consistent product to your stock. In addition this coating will also reduce ration sorting, ensuring that each mouthful a cow consumes contains the same proportion of each ingredient of the designed diet.
The QLF Allstock range is, as the name suggests suitable for “all stock.” As well as providing a physical coating benefit, they also give a nutritional benefit from additional sugar. As such these products will enhance palatability, helping to maintain intakes when poorly fermented forages or unpalatable ingredients are included in the ration. QLF Allstock will also help to ease in changes to ration components.
The two photos below show the significant difference that adding a QLF ration conditioning product can have when it comes to reducing dust. The photo on the left shows the ration before QLF is added, the photo to the right after QLF has been added.
