You asked. We listened. The DuraFerm® Goat Concept•Aid® Protein Tub is the newest product in the DuraFerm line for goat producers looking to keep the Amaferm® advantage in their herd while increasing protein during the most critical production phases.
The DuraFerm Goat Concept•Aid Protein Tub is a 20% natural protein tub that uses only the highest quality vitamins, minerals and organic trace minerals along with the naturally produced prebiotic, Amaferm. The tub contains organic zinc, copper, manganese, selenium yeast and high levels of vitamin E for support of reproductive health.
Amaferm is a precision prebiotic designed to enhance digestibility by amplifying nutrient supply for maximum performance. It is research-proven to increase the energy available resulting in more milk production and the ability to initiate and maintain pregnancy and fertility.
“The DuraFerm Goat Concept•Aid Tub is designed to target cycling, embryo production and conception rates in your does, and is designed to be fed 30 days prior to kidding through breeding. The high level of Vitamin E combined with organic zinc, copper and manganese will help maximize reproductive health of your herd. The inclusion of our proprietary prebiotic Amaferm will also amplify digestibility and nutrient supply, increasing the energy available to the does or any goats you feed it to,” said Jake Warntjes, National Sales Manager.
The DuraFerm Goat Concept•Aid Protein Tub comes in a 50-pound tub. One tub is recommended for every 15-20 head. Consumption per animal should be 2-6 ounces per head, per day. This is the second goat-specific product in the DuraFerm line; however, it is not necessary to feed both the tub and the DuraFerm Goat Concept•Aid at the same time since both products have the Concept•Aid package.
“Many progressive goat producers have seen the benefits of the DuraFerm Concept•Aid loose mineral and have asked for a protein tub that also contains Concept•Aid. We hope they find this new 20% protein tub to be beneficial in their breeding program,” Warntjes said.
The tubs are safe for all ages of goats, so if kids are also consuming the tubs with the does, they will be getting added vitamin and minerals. The Amaferm will help with digestive health and rumen development as young kids grow and perform.
