F1 Novatan is a natural and alternative solution made with essential oils and trace elements. Its action increases the zootechnical performances of dairy cows by improving the use of the proteins of the diet. By limiting nitrogenous waste and methane production, F1 Novatan helps to preserve the environment.
An average increase of 1.5 litres per cow per day.
Less ammonia production and more intestinal protein.
F1 Novatan increases the quantity of by-pass protein.
Improved digestive function and digestive comfort.
F1 Novatan benefits from all of the expertise of Techna in terms of essential oils for ruminants.
It acts to increase intestinal protein and to optimise rumen function.
F1 Novatan has been acclaimed by users in many countries.
The active principles of F1 Novatan have a targeted action on the rumen microbe population.
This action is two-fold:
F1 Novatan therefore ensures improved protein fermentation by limiting waste in the form of ammonia.
Furthermore, the quantity of intestinal protein is greater. With F1 Novatan, rumen pH is better controlled and the digestibility of all of the rumen degradable protein is improved. There is a further improvement in starch and sugar utilisation all resulting in a net increase in the yield of microbial crude protein (rumen bugs).
F1 Novatan acts on all the components of the diet, even on the forages.
Numerous trials have proven it: tested in different types of diet, F1 Novatan significantly improves the performances of dairy cows (1.2 litre on average) and helps to control metabolic disorders.
When used to optimise the formulation, F1 Novatan is the ideal solution for obtaining top-quality feeds at a lower cost.
There is a great body of evidence supporting the negative effects of high blood and milk urea saturation caused primarily by the absorption of ammonia through the rumen wall into the blood stream.
This is made worse when the diet is supplemented with high concentrations of ERDP (effective rumen degradable protein)(fermentable protein) from sources like spring grass and rapeseed meal.
This can be offset by buffer feeding a low protein rumen conditioning balancing feed mix.
In the mid 1980's Professor David Leaver published work from trials at the Crichton college farm near Dumfries, showing the benefits of slowing the passage of feeds through the rumen using chopped old low protein hay and molasses.
Since then we have seen that low protein high fibre forages like Whole Crop, Maize silage and straw are great ingredients to buffer feeding.
If the dietary protein levels cannot be offset by enough or no buffer feed it is important to adopt the following strategy.
> Feed a low protein compound feed in the parlour / robot.
> Feed an inclusion of F1 Novatan, This product is proven to improve protein utilisation and reduce the urea loading thereby: -
Available in powder form, F1 Novatan can be used:
F1 Novatan usually takes between 15 and 30 days to take full effect.
Feed F1 Yeast. This has been shown to reduce acidosis and improve cellulolytic bacteria thereby supporting a better butterfat and yield.
F1 Yeast works even better with buffered diets.
