Liquid Feed Supplements for Dairy Rations

An excellent source of rumen available carbohydrates (sugar) and protein, liquid feed supplements stimulate rumen function, reduce TMR sorting, increase feed intake and improve fiber digestibility in all stages of production. In lactating cow rations, liquid feed supplements provide additional sugar that leads to an increase in dry matter intake and ultimately milk yield. Feeding liquid feed supplements to dry cows administers essential vitamins and minerals that aid in preventing metabolic disorders associated with calving. Including molasses in starter calf diets increases palatability, reduces particle separation and enhances rumen development. Overall, liquid feeds are an excellent feed source in dairy diets for all stages of production.

Frequently Asked Questions

A. Research suggests that feeding 5.0% total dietary sugar, on a DM basis, will increase milk yield, milk fat and protein (Broderick and Radloff, 2004; DeVries and Gill, 2012)

A. All sugar is eventually digested down to glucose, which is utilized by the animal. When sugar is added to the diet, it brings in additional rapidly fermentable carbohydrates while typically replacing starch. If a cow consumes too much starch, it will result in a decrease in rumen pH, leading to digestive disturbance and the animal to go off feed. Sugar is a safer alternative to starch, however, like starch there is an optimum inclusion level that sugar can be fed before performance is hindered.
