CATTLAC Bypass Fat is an 82% fat product using the Calcium Salt of Free Fatty Acids technology and a blend of vegetable oils, primarily from soybeans, to create a unique product with desirable fatty acid profile. It can be used for any class of dairy or beef animal when an increase in the energy density of the diet is required or where fat supplementation is needed. This highly palatable fat supplement can be fed at 0.5# to 2.0# per head per day or at the rate recommended by your nutritionist. Because the fat is bonded to a calcium molecule, the product is a granular to a fine dry powder.
Feeding unbound vegetable oil to a ruminant animal can cause a decrease in fiber utilization and decreased nutrient absorption from the rumen. This is because oil coats and kills fiber digesting bacteria and also coats the rumen papillae, which is the site of nutrient absorption from the rumen. Feeding a high quality bypass fat also delivers the dietary essential fatty acids to the small intestine for absorption. Soybean oil naturally contains excellent levels of Oleic, Linolenic and Linoleic fatty acids that have been shown to increase reproductive efficiency.
