Optimate is an essential omega-3 fatty acid supplement with added vitamins which are all rumen protected to improve reproductive performance and herd health in dairy cows.

Optimate uses Salmon oil on a highly absorbent carrier and is rumen protected using a high melting point hydrogenated vegetable oil. The result is a fine, free flowing powder that is easily mixed into the feed or used as a top dressing.

The rumen protection of the Salmon oil means it bypasses the rumen and allows for slow targeted release in the intestine. Salmon oil is used as it provides a natural source of high levels of omega 3 but more importantly it contains high levels of Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). It is these essential fatty acids which are important for certain biological functions.

Omega 3 fatty acids act on the suppression of prostaglandin which can be increased due to hormonal imbalance with high yielding dairy cows. This can result in a reduction of progesterone secretion which affects the preparation of the uterus for the fertilised embryo.
