Enrich livestock nutrition with Maxcare feed supplements

Maxcare, our leading feed supplement brand, provides farmers with a portfolio of easy-to-use products uniquely formulated to support livestock performance. These well-balanced solutions offer optimal nutrition while minimising the cost of feed and feed production.

Our full range of feed supplements for ruminants, poultry and swine supplies all essential micro ingredients (vitamins, macro and trace minerals) and additives (amino acids, enzymes and more).

Precision-formulated feed and mineral supplements

The Trouw Nutrition range of Maxcare® feed and mineral supplements have been specially formulated to help meet the latest nutritional requirements of ruminants and monogastrics. Included in the range are a choice of powder minerals, molassed lick buckets, protein concentrates, salt blocks and DCAB products, offering flexibility in a wide range of production systems.

Each individual specification has been specifically formulated by our expert team of nutritionists, using data from over 18,000 forage mineral analyses carried out by our very own Trouw Nutrition GB Laboratory within the last 5 years. This extensive set of data has been used to help ensure accurate evidence-based recommendations to help balance forages offered in GB for optimal animal health and performance.

The responsible mineral strategy

As part of our ‘responsible mineral strategy’, the Maxcare range includes Trouw Nutrition’s unique high quality Selko® feed additives, IntelliBond®, Optimin® and AO-mix R, which offer a number of proven animal health and performance benefits.

Trouw Nutrition’s Maxcare Ruminant range has been formulated without the inclusion of any sulphate and oxide trace minerals, to help minimise any negative effects on feed digestibility and to ensure only the best trace mineral supply to the animal.

How does IntelliBond benefit animal performance?

• Improved feed palatability
- Animals prefer supplements that contain IntelliBond trace minerals over supplements with sulphate trace minerals.*
• Optimal fibre digestibility
- Supports the function of the fibre-digesting and other bacteria in the rumen, and subsequent animal performance.
- Research has shown replacing sulphate trace minerals with IntelliBond hydroxy trace minerals to avoid a reduction in NDF digestibility by up to 3.4 points in dairy and beef cattle diets                   - every 1 point increase in NDFd is worth 0.25 to 0.3kg of milk.*
• High relative bioavailability (RBV)
- Independent university research has shown IntelliBond C and IntelliBond Z to have 1.96 and 2.04 times greater RBV when
compared to inorganic sources of copper and zinc respectively.*
- This helps deliver more trace mineral to the animal’s bloodstream to support health and performance whilst minimising the environmental impact of mineral excretion.
• Heathier, more productive animals
- The unique properties of IntelliBond hydroxy trace minerals help provide a reliable and predictable supply of trace minerals to the
animal, to drive optimal health and productivity.
