- Designed by experts for the optimal nutritional support of dairy cows and ewes during periods of increased metabolic demand.
Keto Energy: Your Vital Aid for Metabolic Challenges in Dairy Cows and Ewes
Keto Energy is a high-quality, scientifically formulated supplement that meets dairy cows’ and ewes’ immediate energy demands during high-stress periods. It offers an impactful blend of readily available energy sources, essential vitamins, and trace elements. In addition, it is instrumental in dealing with metabolic diseases like ketosis in cows and Twin Lamb Disease in ewes.
Ketosis in Dairy Cows
Ketosis is a metabolic disorder common in dairy cows during the period following calving. This arises due to the imbalance between the cow’s high energy demand and her insufficient dietary energy intake, leading to decreased milk yield, loss of appetite, and changes in behaviour and physical health (Oetzel, 2007). Keto Energy, with its blend of dextrose and cane molasses, offers a prompt source of energy that helps elevate the cow’s blood glucose levels, effectively combatting the energy deficit and aiding in a swift recovery from Ketosis (Duffield, 2000).
Pre and Post-Calving in Dairy Cows
In the days leading up to and following calving, dairy cows experience increased metabolic demands. If these demands aren’t met through adequate nutrition, cows may enter a state of negative energy balance, leading to metabolic disorders such as ketosis and fatty liver syndrome (Drackley, 1999). Keto Energy can help prevent these conditions by providing an immediate energy source, promoting smoother transitions into and out of the calving period.
Twin Lamb Disease in Ewes
Also known as Pregnancy Toxaemia, Twin Lamb Disease primarily affects pregnant ewes, particularly those carrying multiple lambs. The energy demands of the growing lambs often surpass the ewe’s energy intake, causing an energy deficit that results in symptoms like lethargy, blindness, and incoordination (Ganaba et al., 1997). Keto Energy can provide immediate energy to meet the ewe’s heightened energy needs, with ingredients such as propylene glycol as effective preventive measures against Twin Lamb Disease (O’Sullivan, 2016).
Pre or Post-Lambing Ewes
The energy demands are significantly high for ewes approaching lambing or those that have just lambed, often resulting in energy deficiency. Keto Energy’s composition is designed to supply immediate energy, aiding recovery and preventing potential health complications related to energy deficiency (Goff & Horst, 1997).
Keto Energy’s Unique Composition
Beyond its energy-providing components, Keto Energy also contains a spectrum of essential vitamins and trace elements that contribute to overall animal health. For instance, Vitamin E and Selenium improve immune function and help prevent mastitis in dairy cows (Weiss, 1998). In addition, b Vitamins, including B1, Biotin, and B12, play vital roles in energy metabolism, preventing metabolic disorders.
