  ME Protein Benefits
Barley 13.2 10% High in energy in the form of starch making it highly fermentable encouraging milk protein and fast growth. Ideal to compliment forages.
Barley Dark Grains  12.7 26% High digestible fibre, high in undegraded protein and low in starch. Palatable.
Beet Pulp  12.5 11% High in rumen fermentable energy (FME). Contains highly digestible fibre. Maintains rumen condition and encourages acetate production. Good sugar levels and very palatable.
Biscuit Meal  14.25 9% High in energy, sugar and processed starches
Citrus Pulp 12.2 6.5% Good digestible fibre level, pleasant aroma which encourages intake and palatable.
Draff 11.7 24% Very palatable succulent grains. Attractive to all stock.
Maize 14 9% High starch and energy levels. Excellent source of digestible "slow release" starch. Highly digestible and palatable.
Maize Dark Grains  15 28% An extremely high energy mid protein feed. Rich in digestible fibre and providing a good source of bypass protein.
Maize Gluten  13 22% Good starch content. Balanced energy and protein. Good availability all year round and can be fed to all classes of livestock. 
Malt 11.6 21% Good source of digestible fibre and helps to minimize the risk of acidosis.
Megalac 33 0% Extremely high content of rumen protected highly digestible energy. Increases milk yield, increases energy intakes and improves body condition.
Oat Feed  6 5% High level of neutral detergent fibre (NDF) and palatable.
Oats 12.1 12.5% Good starch and energy levels. Good palatability.
Palm Kernels  12.8 18% Good source of protein and energy with high level of digestible fibre. High inclusion rates can help to boost butterfat levels.
Prairie Meal   17.3 65% High in energy and undegradable protein. Decent starch source and palatable up to 20% inclusion rate in a ration.
Rapeseed 12.1 38.5% High protein and good energy.
Soya Hipro  14 54% Excellent source of high quality protein and rumen bypass protein. Increases live weight gain and increases milk protein percentage and yield.
Soya Hulls  11.8 12.4% Rich source of digestible fibre. Allows energy intakes to be increased without increasing the risk of acidosis.
Sunflower 9.5 36% Good protein source and high in fibre. Helps reduce acidosis by its fibre content. Palatable.
