No more excuses that you can't get your calf to eat or you can't get them fat enough!
Cattle GLU-Coat is a unique product to replace any oil or fat that you might be using. When a calf is behind in weight, not eating good, not fat enough, etc. the first thinga person does or thinks of is to "ADD FAT". For example....."If not fat enough, ADD FAT, it will make them fatter",..... "If not eating enough, ADD FAT or OIL, because they might like the taste", OR..... "Hey we are behind the eight ball and we're not going to make weight, ADD FAT". Studies show that feed intake and feed efficiency go down when a feed reaches 6% fat content. So as a family putting fat or oils into a show feed of today it will normally sail over that 6% mark. In return, you are defeating the purpose of adding fat and may have a negative effect on weight gain, feed intake, and feed efficiency. When too much oil or fat is used, it will coat the rumen and the feed particles in the rumen which will slow down the digestion of the nutrients. Excess fat or oil can also create loose stools.
