IMPROVED FIBER DIGESTIBILITY RELEASES ENERGY FROM FORAGE

Summit Mineral is shown to increase fiber digestibility by 12-24% across multiple university studies. Fiber digestibility is directly related to the energy cattle can extract from forage. The more energy released from forage, especially standing forage, the less money you need to spend in off-farm feed costs.

 
On average, Summit Mineral increases fiber digestibility by 15% in the rumen saving you over 1,000 lbs. of forage/hay or $100 in savings per cow per year.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT SUMMIT MINERAL

“In the spring and summer of 2021, grazing conditions went from great to horrible,” said Roy, a rancher from Corning, Kansas with 105 custom-grazed cows. Roy started supplementing Summit Prevail with Garlic to new heifers and cows in late gestation trying to extend his waning forage supply.  

“What I noticed right away was the health and vigor of the calves at birth and shortly thereafter.”


Roy said calves of cows fed Summit Prevail with Garlic were quick to stand and nurse after birth and follow the cow to the next paddock. Compared to past years, Roy said his calves never had that kind of get up and go before.  

Summit Prevail with Garlic also helped Roy’s herd mitigate flies that summer, increase calf weights and reduce stress. 


“The cattle looked great the entire time, probably the best they ever have during the last 4-5 years I’ve been grazing these cows.”
 

CATYL-ZYME IS THE SECRET INGREDIENT

Summit Mineral includes Catyl-Zyme™, a patented ingredient, which activates native rumen microbes and enzymatic activity in the rumen. This increased activity breaks down tough cellulose fibers of forages to release glucose or energy for production.

These micrographs demonstrate how speeding up enzymatic reactions in the rumen converts more of a silage leaf into usable energy. Notice how little of the silage leaf remains in panel 5 with Catyl-Zyme.

CATYL-ZYME IS RESEARCH PROVEN

Research done at Kansas State University shows that cows fed Catyl-Zyme had heavier calves. Increasing fiber digestibility, energy production and milk quality led to cows and calves with: 

 

  • Heavier weaning weights by 14 lbs.

  • Improved body condition scores in cows of 0.3

  • Increased timed AI pregnancy rate of 9%

  • Increased overall pregnancy rate by 3%
