DAIRY NUTRITION AND HEALTH
Innovation To Unlock Potential
Top dairy producers continue to look for ways to improve herd performance through efficiency, health and overall productivity.
At Diamond V, our dairy feed additives* help the dairy animal reach its genetic potential for growth and efficiency by working naturally* with the biology of the animal to maintain immune strength and promote digestive health.
Healthy populations of beneficial gut bacteria and immune strength allow dairy cows to better tolerate common production stresses and challenges, allowing for overall health and performance. The result is a more efficient immune system, which promotes gut health, immune strength, and wellness & profitability.
Efficient Immune Systems in Dairy Cattle Promote:
Vitality at Every Stage of Life
Dairy producers need real-world solutions to support animal wellness, improved production efficiency, and overall enterprise profitability.
Our Life Stage Solutions® program for dairy recognizes there are special challenges at every stage of the animal’s life.
Diamond V’s immune health feed additives meet these life stage needs by maintaining immune strength for optimal health, wellness, and performance in calves, heifers and cows.
Diamond V’s Calf Program is a two-step strategy to optimize pre- and post-weaning calf immunity and health, growth, performance, and gastrointestinal development.
SmartCare® dairy postbiotic is designed for all types of pre-weaning liquid diets, whether used in whole milk or milk replacer. In the starter diet, NutriTek® immune health feed additive or XPC® fermentate make up the two-step program.
This two-step program lays the foundation for the calf to reach her genetic potential. Research has shown the Diamond V calf program helps promote:
- Calf immunity & health
- Rumen and intestinal development
- Starter intake
- Growth and performance
Healthy calves. More lifetime potential.
The dairy heifer’s growth and development impact her future health and productivity in the milking herd.
As a young ruminant, her nutritional requirements and nutritional health needs are comparable to other young bovines, including beef calves, as they become full-fledged ruminants.
Supporting optimal health and performance in these young ruminants with Diamond V dairy feed additives promote a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria in the rumen. Improved rumen function helps the heifer reach her genetic potential.
Research shows Diamond V postbiotics support:
- Balanced immunity
- Digestive health and development
- Overall growth and performance
Heifer development. Your future success.
Diamond V’s Lactation Program consists of NutriTek® feed additive – our next generation dairy technology – or our XP™ / XPC® immune health postbiotic, as the foundation to maintain immune strength and promote digestive health for overall performance and profitability.
NutriTek postbiotic is Diamond V’s most advanced natural immune health feed additive for all dairy animals. NutriTek optimizes gut health and immune strength, which translates into healthy animals performing to their genetic potential.
The research-proven microbial fermentates in our XP / XPC products promote a healthy balance of bacteria in the rumen, helping to optimize rumen function.
Optimized rumen health and balanced immune function translate into healthy cows performing to their genetic potential. Research demonstrates that Diamond V dairy feed additives support:
- Gut health
- Dry matter intake in early lactation
- Maintenance of body weight
- Improved feed efficiency
- Milk production over entire lactation
Healthy herd. Total dairy performance.
