Boost the potential of your cereals, add more protein 

XL Grain is a feed supplement that enhances farm-grown cereals such as wheat, barley, triticale and grain corn used in feed rations for growing heifers, fattening cattle or dairy cows during production.

Reduce dependence on prepared feeds (soybean or rapeseed cake) 

XL Grain® increases the protein by +45% in cereals. Raising the pH to 9 increases the proportion of cereals in the feed ration with no risk of acidosis. Value is added to farm-grown cereals and feed cost is reduced given that less soybean or rapeseed cake is purchased.

1 kg of treated cereal = 110 g of soybean cake or 140 g of rapeseed cake saved

Recommendations for use

XL Grain® is mixed with mature cereals (barely, wheat, oat, triticale, grain corn) and water according to grain moisture (optimum moisture content in 18 - 20%) at harvest or at the time of storage. A mixer should be used to produce the desired enzymatic reaction.

Get results with a dose of 25 kg per tonne of cereal after leaving the product to work for 15 - 20 days. Our technicians check the quality of the treated cereal at every job = samples are taken to measure pH, dry matter and crude protein.

Testimony
from cattle farms

Today, the cost of cakes is too high in the ration

We work are closely as possible with farmers to calculate the feed cost of rations.

The journey of farmers towards more feed autonomy is justified. For example, soybean represents 50% of the feed costs in fattening cattle and up to 57% in dairy farms. Just like stock market prices, the ever-increasing availability of correctors has an impact on production costs. On this basis, it’s self-evident for farmers to be able to make the best use of their cereals in order to better control their feed costs. Each kilo of XL GRAIN processed cereal saves 135g of soybean cake while safely increasing the percentage of starch in the rations.
