Underpinning any change to diet is the need to maintain or improve performance and profitability. NovaPro, from Trident, is a rumen protected rape expeller, providing a sustainable, British, cost-effective alternative to soya. Trials run at the University of Nottingham found rations containing NovaPro produced an additional 1.7 litres of milk per cow per day compared to a soya and rape ration, with no significant effect on milk constituents. Rape has an improved amino acid profile more similar to milk protein than soya. On-farm trials showed improved protein utilisation, with a significant reduction in milk urea nitrogen levels, meaning less nitrogen pollution on farm. There is life after soya.
