State of the art
ProGlyc is a group of energy supplying products based on the active ingredient: mono propylene glycol (MPG). This glucose precursor is very effective in the supply of blood glucose to dairy cows, goats and sheep. Especially in the close up-, fresh- and early lactation groups the ruminants are deficient in glucose. As a result of their high energy demand, the ruminants start to mobilize body fat to meet their energy demand. This sudden change over towards fat metabolization causes problems, which results in fatty liver syndrome, ketosis, not optimal milk production, fertility problems etc. It is estimated that 30-50% of all dairy cows go through this phase causing health issues and high economical losses. ProGlyc can be mixed into mineral supplements, pelleted feed and TMR or topdressed.
ProGlyc, Mode of Action
ProGlyc® 55 is a dry palatable propylene glycol (in powder and pellet form) that supplies the extra energy a cow needs at the end of the dry period and during the first 100 days of lactation. ProGlyc® 55 is metabolized differently and therefore transformed into glucose much faster than fat and fatty acids. The fat concentration and keton bodies in the blood are reduced and the liver is spared. This has a positive effect on milk production, fertility and health. ProGlyc® 55 gives high producing dairy cows a good start and prevents problems after calving and “slow starters”.
