TechMix has introduced a new product for treating ketosis: Propylene Advantage, which combines propylene glycol with glycerine.
The company explained that glycerine has been shown to enter the cow's metabolic pathway much closer to glucose — which is required for synthesizing milk — than other glucose precursors. This metabolic efficiency can help more quickly ease demands on the liver for glucose production. This effect makes Propylene Advantage a very effective prevention and recovery product for cows that are either potentially or clinically ketotic.
Sold in 1-gal. jugs and 55-gal. drums, Propylene Advantage is liquid-form product that can be easily administered to cattle in the same way as ordinary propylene glycol products. Propylene Advantage can also be used in chiller units.
Propylene Advantage is manufactured in the U.S. and available through animal health distributors.
