Caustic wheat

Item number: Caustic wheat

Description

Caustic wheat is wheat treated with caustic soda. The sodium hydroxide coating acts as an alkaili to the acids produced in the rumen, therefore helping to promote stable rumen conditions, which is essential for efficient feed utilisation, reducing the risks associated with feeding high levels of rolled cereals or acid silages. The reduction in acid loading in the rumen in turn leads to increased milk yield and quality in dairy cows and increased live weihgt gain and feed conversion in beef cattle.
