Propel® Energy Nugget is a new, highly-palatable, high-energy product-energy product specially formulated to be used as a nutritional supplement for lactating and post-fresh dairy cows. Proven in lactation cow research studies to be more palatable than calcium salts of fatty acids and prilled fat sources, Propel® Energy Nugget is preferred by cows, thus encouraging greater intake levels at the time when suppressed appetites are a common challenge. To produce this product Land O’Lakes Purina Feed developed a proprietary Macro-Encapsulation™ Technology.
