XTRACT® FOR RUMINANTS
Provit company offers 2 products for dairy cows:
- Xtract® Dairy 6965 (active coated extracts: eugenol and cinnamaldehyde);
- Xtract® Ruminant 7065 (active coated extracts: eugenol, cinnamaldehyde and capsaicin.)
Pancosma conducted multi-annual researches aiming at the estimation of a dose composition and the synergy effect of plant extracts used in the production of Xtract® Dairy and Xtract® Ruminant. From the beginning Pancosma company’s concept assumes that innovative products offered for ruminants will not have an impact on the balance of bacteria and rumen protozoa populations.
The essence of Xtract® Dairy and Xtract® Ruminant products is the influence on higher energy availability from a feed ration and better amino acids production in a rumen.
A cow’s rumen produces 70% of nitrogen and 80% of the necessary energy to fulfil requirements of an animal.
Volatile fatty acids – acetic, propionic, butyric – are developed in the result of the fermentation of carbohydrates (starch, grain) with microorganisms involved.
Mode of action of Xtract® Dairy and Xtract® Ruminant
- Less energy losses in rumen: less methane production.
With 2 carbon atoms, acetic acid is the smallest volatile fatty acid. Its formation leads to the development of methane, which is not used by an animal. It is estimated that 10% of all energy released is wasted as a result of methane production.
Xtract® Dairy and Xtract® Ruminant reduce methane production significantly, what results in better energy consumption in milk production and daily weight gains.
- Increase of propionic acid production.
Propionic acid is an important volatile fatty acid, which is directly used in lactose production, hence in milk production. Xtract® Dairy and Xtract® Ruminant components are responsible for significant increase of propionic volatile fatty acid in rumen. Production and healthy results of Pancosma company’s products are proved and confirmed in numerous scientific publications and trials. The products do not reduce protein and fat level in milk and do not have a negative influence on milk organoleptic properties.
- Increase of protein availability and lower ammonia losses in rumen.
Thanks to the inclusion of cinnamaldehyde, Xtract® Dairy and Xtract® Ruminant stimulate the creation of smaller fractions (peptides) and amino acids. In consequence they speed up the process of proteolysis and peptidolysis. Cinnamaldehyde also has a positive influence on deamination process (protein catabolism), what prevents from the excessive ammonia production.
- The reduction of ketosis risks.
There is a negative energy balance starting from calving to the peak of lactation.
The amount of feed components intake is not sufficient to cover demands for milk production.
A cow is forced to release its own body reserves, so it also loses its weight. Fat released from the body leads to dangerous consequences: overloading of liver functions and increase of ketones in an animal’s blood. In this critical period it is important, so that a cow converts an energy from a ration to the maximum degree, while releasing its tissue reserves as little as possible. Phyto-ingredients existing in Xtract® reduce ketosis risks and the occurrence of fatty liver problem, they decrease the amount of released reserves in dry period. Cows are heavier and in better condition in the beginning of lactation. Trials performed with the use of Pancosma company’s additives showed the higher glucose level in cows’ blood before calving. It is recommended to use Xtract® Dairy or Xtract® Ruminant additives 3-4 weeks before calving (and to the end of lactation), so the ketosis problem would not appear.
- The reduction of acidosis risks.
The inclusion of capsaicin (extract of pepper) in Xtract® 7065 additive for dairy cows enables higher intake of roughage. Animals eat feeds more frequently, what reduces the acidosis risks, as major decreases of the pH of daily rumen content are not observed like it happens with less frequent feeds intake. Higher feeds intake by animals is kept during strong heat (summer- heat stress), what results in maintaining the production at a stable level. Capsaicin shows the ability of limiting the heat stress impact by reduction of oxidative stress in an animal. It improves immune functions and the health of intestines.
