Purina Animal Nutrition has introduced Purina Accuration Hi-Fat Block, a self-fed, high-fat protein supplement for cattle consuming inadequate or low-quality forage. The supplement delivers 10% fat to provide additional energy and balance forage nutrient deficiencies.
“Accuration Hi-Fat Block provides energy to help your cattle maintain optimal body condition and performance,” said Anthony Robinson, associate marketing manager with Purina Animal Nutrition. “It’s ideal for replacement heifer development, cows or heifers in mid- to late-gestation, balancing deficiencies of fall forages and for cattle on large range pasture.”
Accuration Hi-Fat Block not only delivers a higher fat percentage, but it also contains Intake Modifying Technology to help improve forage management.
“Intake Modifying Technology supports snack eating, causing cattle to be able to eat more forage and get the benefit out of the forage they eat,” Robinson said. “It puts cattle in control of consumption — if they need more energy, they’ll typically eat more supplement; if they don’t need more energy, they’ll typically consume less.”
This new product expands the existing line of Accuration supplements, which are available in block, liquid and tub forms. Accuration Hi-Fat Block is available in 200- and 500-lb. blocks and 200-lb. plastic tubs.
“When forage quality or availability changes throughout the year, you can turn to Accuration Hi-Fat Block for additional energy in a convenient, self-fed form,” Robinson added.
Accuration Hi-Fat Block is a part of the Purina All Seasons Cattle Nutrition Program, helping ensure cattle energy needs are met year-round.
