Rumen buffers: for better productivity and profit potential

With today's high-energy feeding practices, some cows can't produce enough of their own natural buffer-saliva. That means excess acid can build up in the rumen and cause poor feed efficiency, reduced feed intake and lower milk production. Using a high-quality rumen buffer may offer you significant benefits and insurance against unpredictable or stressful environments.

Land O’Lakes Feed rumen buffer products aim to help you maximize your cows' productivity and profit potential. Proven to optimize feed efficiency and support milk production, our rumen buffers are designed to help maintain a desirable acid balance in the rumen.

Dairy Buffer Pak™ rumen buffer includes two minerals

Dairy Buffer Pak™ rumen buffer is formulated with a specific combination of feed-grade sodium sesquicarbonate and magnesium that optimizes feed intake and fat better than either mineral alone. It also contains mineral flavor for improved cow acceptability. Feed Dairy Buffer Pak when:

  • Fat depression occurs
  • Feeding a high-grain ration
  • Feeding predominantly corn silage as forage
  • Ration is high in moisture

  • Cows encounter hot weather or heat stress
