The health and activity of rumen microflora is at the absolute core of all our products which have been specifically formulated to supply ruminant animals with the most cost-effective source of Nitrogen, Sulfur and Phosphorus.
U-Pro is the complete product formulated to supply Nonprotein Nitrogen compounds through reticulated trough systems to livestock grazing on dry pasture. U-Pro is not urea but rather a scientifically formulated product designed to provide a slower release water soluble supplement with enhanced stability in bore waters throughout Australia.
U-Pro is for use through the NUTRIDOSE or the PROMATIC and is available in dry 25kg bags for mixing in nutrient tanks or as liquid 60 for which enables direct injection straight out of an IBC shuttle.
Best Suited For:
All areas where grazing occurs in times of dry conditions to provide rumen microflora with nonprotein nitrogen, phosphorus and sulphur to reduce weight loss in cattle. U-Proâ€™s formulation is tweaked to account for individual water source bicarbonate levels and is therefore able to be formulated to suit to all bore waters in Queensland and the Northern Territory as well as dam water sources.
Urea is the most economic form of nitrogen supplementation available. Urea contains 46% nitrogen that is utilised by rumen to form protein. U-Pro provides a source of water soluble urea to stimulate the growth of the rumen microflora. This increased growth leads to greater fibre utilisation and the increased production of bacteria adds valuable protein that the ruminant animal can utilise.
Ammonium Sulphate contains both nitrogen and sulphur, both elements required for the manufacture of protein by rumen bacteria. U-Pro includes ammonium sulphate to provide a source of readily available sulphur as well as contribute some nitrogen that can be utilised by rumen bacteria.
Urea Phosphate is added to U-Pro to stabilise the urea. Urea Phosphate is strongly acidic (pH 2) and acts to buffer the high bicarbonate bore waters, therefore stabilising urea and preventing its decay to ammonia. Urea Phosphate is deliberately added to U-Pro as a stabilising ingredient because it also contributes a rapidly soluble source of 100% available phosphorus and slow release urea that can be utilised by ruminant microflora.
A unique new product that provides Phosphorus as well as a stable and slow release form of urea. The strong bond between the urea molecule and the phosphoric acid molecule within U-Phos must be broken before ruminant urease can act on the urea. As a result, U-Phos is a completely non-toxic form of urea and is suitable to all areas of phosphorus deficiency.
Available In: Dry Form 25kg bags and liquid 60.
U-Trace is specifically formulated to contain all the major trace elements required by cattle, sheep and goats. U-Trace can be added to U-Pro or U-Phos liquid 60 or can be dosed on its own into reticulated water systems.
Best suited for:In all pasture systems throughout Australia where minerals to any degree are marginal or deficient. U-Trace is designed to specifically address these deficiencies in pasture and supplement these shortfalls so that the daily requirements of the major trace elements for grazing sheep and cattle are met therefore maximising pasture use.
Based on a Dilution rate of 5:100000 and a drinking rate of 30 liters per day the cost is 0.9 cents per head.
*Note, Magnesium is not considered a trace element as the amount required per day, while dependent on production, is between 30 and 60 grams and is normally obtained from pasture. However, magnesium can be added if requested, to address issues such as grass tetany.
