ADM expands Gro Fast® portfolio for dairy beef
Gro Fast is a feeding programme designed to help make the most of dairy beef's genetic potential from birth to market. By promoting proper protein and fat deposition, stable digestion and consistent feed intake, the product line maximises dairy beef's ability to gain weight quickly and efficiently, resulting in profitable high-grade and high-yield carcasses.
New additions to the Gro Fast product portfolio include: Gro Fast 36 Concentrate for calves up to 400 pounds (181kg), and Gro Fast 46/16 and Gro Fast 38/13 supplements for use from post-weaning to finishing weight. Gro Fast 38% Concentrate is also available for producers who desire an all-natural protein supplement. ADM's Gro Fast products are fortified with optimal nutrient bioavailability including: IntelliBond® Hydroxy Minerals comprised of highly bioavailable zinc, copper and manganese sources; Nova-E™ Natural-Source Vitamin E to provide immune support; and a special flavourant to promote consistent intake.
"The Gro Fast portfolio is designed to enable dairy beef to achieve fast, economical and efficient gains by providing energy-rich diets with limited roughage, high-quality protein sources, and bioavailable vitamins and minerals that support rumen function," said Bill Earley, dairy product portfolio manager for ADM Animal Nutrition. "We are excited to offer these new concentrates as we continue to find new ways to help dairy beef producers deliver profitable Prime-cut beef to the market."
