Dairy Features & Benefits
Replace part or all of your sodium bicarbonate or sesquicarbonate
buffer with the equivalent quantity of MIN-AD and realize the following benefits:
Improved Milk Production - In two transition cow trials, a MIN-AD plus sodium bicarbonate buffer outperformed
straight sodium bicarbonate. Complete replacement by MIN-AD gives similar production and components.
Acidosis Management - MIN-AD has 75% more
acid-consuming capacity than sodium bicarbonate. MIN-AD is acid-soluble, making it
available when rumen pH drops for several hours post-feeding, thereby improving
acidosis management. Post rumen buffering has been demonstrated by measurably higher fecal pH levels.
Increased Microbial Efficiency - Research
has shown that a MIN-AD plus sodium bicarbonate combination increases
rumen microbial efficiency by about 10% compared to the typical
MgO plus sodium bicarbonate buffer pack.
Added Minerals - Several trials that have measured Mg and Ca serum levels have shown MIN-AD to be an effective source of Ca and Mg. Therefore, you can reduce the
amount of your supplement by 2-3 oz. when it is used to partially
replace sodium-based buffers.
