Mineral Food Cap to Avoid Ruminant's Acidosis
Tecni Buffer is a mineral food that contains a mixture of different anti-acid substances, specially designed to help maintain the rumen's optimum pH conditions (between 6.2 and 6.8).
Tecni Buffer successfully corrects all situations of clinical and subclinical acidosis, favoring the development of the correct ruminal flora and, consequently, contributing to an improvement in the productive yield, both in fattening for meat - stands out by the improvement of the conversion index and by the increase in average daily gain - as in milk production - provides the minerals needed for milk production and reestablishment of the electrolyte balance and in lactating animals allows a significant increase in production and in milk fat content.
Among the many advantages that the use of Tecni Buffer provides, the ones that stand out are: the maintenance of the ruminal pH balance, guaranteeing the best ruminal health conditions; the increase of cationic-aniotic diet difference (DCAD) and blood pH; increased appetite and dry matter intake, controlling the consequences of thermal stress (especially severe in the summer); the development of ruminal flora and digestibility; increasing the efficiency of the use of the diet; the decrease of the appearance of laminitis and hip problems in cattle fed with low forage/concentrate ratio; and the contribution to the acetate/propionate rumen ratio and to the uptake of acetate (milk fat percursor) from the blood through the mammary gland.
Tecni Buffer should be administered with concentrated feed or in the unifeed car, and it is recommended to be freely and permanently available (even if apparently not being consumed) so that the animals self-regulate themselves, when necesary.
tecnipec markets Tecni Buffer in 25 kg bags, with recommended doses being, for cows, between 100 and 200 grams per animal daily, or between 5 and 10 grams per kg; for sheep and goats, 20 grams per animal daily; and for fattening steers, between 1% and 1,3% of feed.
