Butterlac C16

Item number: Butterlac C16


Butterlac is exclusive to ForFarmers. A 100% vegetable fat which is a safe and sustainable energy source for ruminants i.e dairy cattle, goats and sheep that will increase butterfat content while having a positive effect on milk yield. Supports animal vitality and is highly paletable and rumen resistant. Butterlac is produced in the Netherlands, available in micro prills, which have a powdery appearance, but are more free flowing which results in a reduction of dust, improved processing and no lumping. Made from the highest quality palm fatty acids (>95% FFA), consisting of mostly saturated fatty acids, C16 (81%) and has high mettler dropping point (melting point) >58°C, which means it does not interfere with rumen activity and is highly absorbed into the digestive system of ruminants and provides more than double the energy value of carbohydrates and proteins helping to supplement the high energy demand during the early lactation period. The improved digestiblity reduces the risk of ketosis and fatty liver. Butterlac has a neutral smell, better uptake and palatablity in comparison to calcium soap fats, as well as hydrogenated or chemically distilled alternatives.

Nutritional Attributes

Is the most effective type of fat for increasing butterfat content. Helps with fertility by filling the energy gap in early lactation. Can be incorporated into any feeding system.
