GRASETTO ENERGY is an 82% fat product using the Calcium Salt of Free Fatty Acid technology. Grasetto Energy is made from Palm Fatty Acid Distillate containing about 45% Palmitic Acid to help increase milk butterfat and supply the energy that is needed by the cow to maintain milk production and body condition. It can be fed to any class of dairy or beef animal when an increase in the energy density of the diet is needed. Grasetto Energy can be fed from 0.5# to 2.0# per head per day or the level recommended by your nutritionist.
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.
