Energy and Digestibility
The energy in SweetPro is from complex carbohydrates, not
simple sugar. These complex carbohydrates help minimize
digestive disruption while high fat levels additionally boost energy.
Yeast and enzymes from fermentation aid in digestion and
improve feed efficiency up to 25%.
SweetPro products feature fermented distillers feeds including condensed distillers solubles (CDS) instead
of molasses. CDS have aroma and binding benefits that are similar to molasses, but CDS are much higher in protein and fat. And they have NO sugar content to
negatively affect the rumen and drive down pH.
Digestive improvement from SweetPro’s unique blend of
yeast, enzymes, prebiotics, vitamins and minerals helps
maintain animal health and reduces costs because feed
is digested more efficiently.
SweetPro products feature fermentation feed ingredients, rich in yeast, enzymes, prebiotics, and volatile organic acids (VOA) that improve rumen fermentation, resulting
in improved overall digestion and increased feed efficiency.
Condensed distillers solubles (CDS) and distillers dried grains replace molasses in SweetPro®
blocks, providing energy from complex carbohydrates, not simple sugars. Complex carbohydrates
minimize the digestive disruption often associated with starch and sugar.
Protein, Vitamins, Minerals
SweetPro blocks feature high by-pass protein and are fortified with vitamin A, D and E, and a
balanced blend of organically complexed (chelated) trace minerals. This makes SweetPro blocks an outstanding
supplement for forage.
Protein in SweetPro is from safe sources and has a high “rumen by-pass” value. Cows
produce more milk for demanding “growthy” calves, while the
calves themselves get better protein for frame development by
licking the blocks alongside the cow.
Enzymes For Better Health
SweetPro has taken a leading position in improving animal health
naturally by maximizing nutrient utilization for better immune response and performance. Probiotics commonly refers to both the
beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract
and the supplements used to increase
their population. They break down forages
by converting sugars and carbohydrates
into beneficial by-products of fatty acids
and nutrilites, where they will then be
absorbed into the blood and delivered to
cells as nutrients.
Microflora is the broad term that
describes all the bacteria (both good
and bad) active in the digestive tract.
Probiotics and pathogens (disease-
causing microorganisms) are all a
part of the same microflora, but when
the probiotics are strong and healthy,
their populations flourish, leaving little
room and food for the pathogens. This
“crowding out”of the pathogens is
referred to as “competitive exclusion”.
Prebiotics are food for probiotics and
help keep probiotics healthy. Prebiotics
are oligosaccharides. They are not directly
digested by the animal but rather by the
probiotics. These dietary food fibers nourish
the microflora’s beneficial bacteria as they
are converted into beneficial nutrilites.
oligosaccharides that are used in SweetPro®
are fructo, mannan, arabino-xylo and xylo, plus Beta-glucan. These four
oligosaccharides have been specifically
selected, because separately they are good,
but combined they are even better.
Many products contain only one type of
prebiotic, but since selective digestion
occurs, SweetPro targets four main types of
prebiotics. This becomes a key advantage for
SweetPro users, because when probiotics are
healthy and strong, feed gets digested better
(25% better), nutrients are absorbed better,
and the pH stays balanced.
