Various farm trials have shown high levels of calcium propionate to be the key ingredient for providing both energy and calcium to fresh cows.
Providing 100 to 150 grams of calcium from calcium propionate lowers the risk of milk fever and reduces the symptoms of subclinical hypocalcaemia, including depressed immune system, poor muscle tone, and higher incidences of displaced abomasum (DA).
The energy available from this amount of calcium propionate helps lower the risk of ketosis and related disorders.
Many drench products available on the market provide only a fraction of the calcium propionate necessary for good results or supply calcium from other sources that provide no gluconeogenic supplementation at all.
Alfalfa meal is added to provide a readily available source of soluble protein for rumen microbial growth.
It is often recommended to include 1–1.5 lbs of calcium propionate and ¼ lb of potassium chloride and magnesium sulfate as part of an oral drench recipe.
