Grass Match and VHE 18% Dairy have included Megalac Protected Fat as an energy source that may maintain bodycondition, thus helping stronger heats.
Megalac contains essential fatty acids which can be beneficial to egg development and quality and therefore give betterovulations.
Megalac may increase blood progesterone levels, a hormone which plays a very important role in fertility, particularly inthe maintenance of pregnancy.
Trials in Langhill Farm, University of Edinburgh 2005 showed that cows that got Megalac in their diets had animprovement of 23.6% in the 100 Day in-calf rate, and by 200 Days 15% of Megalac fed cows were not in calf comparedto 45% of the control non Megalac fed group of cows. In this trial conception to 1st service improved by 18% withMegalac. This work has similar results to that done by McNamara in Moorepark in 2003 when they also examined theeffects of Megalac (Protected Fat) on fertility parameters.
