Concentrate feeding requires effective rumen buffering
This year’s grass silage results on average indicate higher dry matter, increased fibre and lower energy forage compared to last year. This means many farmers will be feeding increased levels of faster fermenting feeds such as cereals containing starch. There will be outliers with wetter silage and higher lactic acid levels where farmers must pay close attention to indicators such as silage rumination index and acidosis index says ForFarmers’ Brian Doran.
With regard to feeding, as farmers aim to produce milk from forage, the energy available for milk production in grass silage will typically be less, so concentrate levels will see increased feed rates this winter. Freshly calved cows that receive high levels of feed to meet energy demands may find their natural rumination process is insufficient to meet the acidosis challenge from the diet, therefore additional buffering may be required.
Lactating dairy cows can produce over 200 litres of alkaline saliva every day, recycling more than 2.5kg/d of sodium bicarbonate into the rumen. Research work by ForFarmers Nutrition and Innovation Centre (NIC) shows that sodium bicarbonate has only a short-term buffering effect in the rumen and if feed is supplemented with sodium bicarbonate once or twice during the day much of the buffering effect is lost, either in the TMR mix or shortly after feeding.
Many conventional rumen buffers use sodium bicarbonate, however Rumibuff contains a balance of carefully selected natural marine algae and natural antioxidants. The product’s natural honeycombed structure increases the surface area and breaks down more slowly than conventional buffers in the rumen, providing a continuous buffering action which counteracts the acid produced by the diet, particularly when starch fermentation is at its maximum.
