FRA has developed FRA Udder Health Dry: a specific formula containing 1-monogylcerides of medium chain fatty acids, zinc, and micro-ingredients. All of these ingredients are coated in a fat matrix. Feeding this product to dairy cows improves udder health, may reduce mastitis incidence and lowers somatic cell count in milk.
1-Monoglycerides of medium chain fatty acids
Extensive research shows that medium chain 1-monoglycerides possess antibacterial and animal performance improving properties. These 1-monoglycerides of medium chain fatty acids inhibit Gram-positive pathogenic bacteria. As a result of the unique mode of action, 1-monoglycerides are active in the entire gastrointestinal tract and blood stream. Pathogens do not develop resistance against 1-monoglycerides.
FRA Easy Zinc
FRA developed a nano-coated zinc oxide: FRA Easy Zinc. Zinc is known as an essential trace element that promotes the formation of keratin, which in turn promotes macro phage functioning and keratin plug formation.
Adding a small amount of carefully selected micro-ingredients induces a synergetic effect.
Medium chain fatty acids
MCFA's are used as a fat coating and are beneficial in the intestines.
