For progressive farmers looking to improve milk production of their herd
Selko LactiBute increases milk production and fat and protein levels at the same time.
Selko LactiBute is a patented product containing calcium gluconate encapsulated in a matrix, capable of promoting the conversion of lactic acid to butyrate. A correct balance of lactic acid and butyrate in the large intestine is important because it improves the state of health. As a result, nutrient uptake improves, supporting higher productivity levels43,46,47 . The addition of Selko LactiBute to the ration therefore increases milk production and at the same time the levels of fat and protein44,45,48,49,50. This translates into an increase in Energy Corrected Milk (ECM) of 0.85-1 kg per cow per day.
Feed Selko LactiBute during the entire lactation. at 16 grams/cow/day. In case Selko LactiBute is mixed in TMR, add 16 grams per animal per day to the TMR. In case Selko LactiBute is included in compound feed, mix 0.20% into compound feed.
Selko LactiBute contains matrix encapsulated gluconate.
Gluconate stimulates the conversion of lactic acid into butyrate, which reduces the risk for Hindgut acidosis in dairy cows43,46,47 . Improved hindgut health results in an increase of milk production with a higher percentage of milk fat44,45,48,49,50 .
An increase of 0.85-1 kg milk per day
A total of 53 multiparous cows was included in the trial48,49,50 . One group of cows was fed Selko LactiBute, during the close up period and throughout the entire lactation, the other groups served as an untreated control group.
|Energy corrected milk (kg/day)||Fat (g/day)||Protein (g/day)|
Feeding Selko LactiBute resulted in an increase of Energy Corrected Milk of more than 2,5 kg per day48,49,50 . Over 60 trials were carried out in research centres and commercial farms from all over the world. These trials suggest an increase of Energy Corrected Milk of 0.85-1 kg per day should be expected.

Making sustainable dairy farming profitable
Science-based solutions for optimum dairy performance
Adding Selko LactiBute to the ratio increases milk production while increasing fat and protein levels at the same time. This results in an increase of Energy Corrected Milk of 0.85-1 kg per head per day.
IntelliBond’s increased bioavailability and the positive impact on fibre digestion and gut barrier function support well-being and optimizes animal productivity of dairy cows.
SELKO TOXO & TOXO-XL
Selko TOXO® is a mycotoxin mitigation product that contains bentonite, which has strong binding capacity for aflatoxins, ergot toxines and LPS, in combination with glucose biopolymers which maintain gut tight junctions to reduce the translocation of mycotoxins into blood stream. Selko TOXO-XL® combines this with purified β-glucans that improve the immune function of dairy cows.
Selko TMR® is a blend of organic acids that reduces the growth of yeasts, moulds and bacteria such as Enterobacteriaceae like Salmonella. As a result of the reduction in growth of micro-organisms, increases in temperature of the TMR are delayed by at least 6 hours in silages treated with Selko-TMR, resulting in a higher dry matter intake.
Even the best heat stress control programme cannot always fully prevent problems with heat stress in dairy cows. Supplementation with Selko NutriCool can help to avoid a drop in dry matter intake and loss of milk production as a result of heat stress.
Farm-O-San Glucolac 40 Plus provides glucogenic energy and reduces the risk of subclinical or clinical ketosis in dairy cows.
Farm-O-San Reviva is a highly palatable post calving drink for dairy cows, with large amounts of energy and calcium. It reduces the risk of hypocalcaemia and milk fever in dairy cows.
