SweetCake Blocks 101
Feeder Meeting Presentation
Featuring SweetCake Technology
  • Feed Supplement Blocks For The
  • Next Millennium

2
TAKE HOME LESSONS
  • Why to supplement livestock
  • What to supplement
  • What supplements do
  • Economic implications
  • Why SweetCake is different
  • How SweetCake compares
  • SweetCake feeding and management
  • Product selection
  • Discussion

3
WHY TO SUPPLEMENT LIVESTOCK
  • Most fall and winter forages lack sufficient
    nutrients
  • Phosphorus
  • Energy
  • Protein
  • Lack of these nutrients results in
  • Lower reproduction rates
  • Lower weaning rates
  • Lower cull-cow weights

WHY TO SUPPLEMENT LIVESTOCK
  • Major variables effecting economic productivity
  • reproductive efficiency
  • rebreeding quickly after calving
  • Successful weaning of 1 calf/cow/year

Proper Supplementation Can Boost Intake of TDN

12
Effect of Late Gestation Energy Intake On Calf
Survivability Cows That Maintained Weight
During the Last 100 Days Prepartum vs. Those That
Lost 142 Lb. (Corah 1993)
13
What Are the Economic Implications of Not
Supplementing? (How valuable is calf
survivability?)
  • Assume calf market of 80.00 per CWT
  • Assume weaning weight of 450 LBS.
  • Losses of 15 to 30 of calves have been
    documented when cows loose excessive condition
  • 15 calves have value of 5400.00
  • 30 calves have value of 10,080.00
  • Cost to maintain body condition
  • At 40 cents/day and 120 days equals less than
    4,800 per 100 head
  • Conclusion Calf survivability alone will pay
    costs of supplementation without regard to
    rebreeding

14
These Nutrient Deficiencies Equate To LESS IN
PRODUCER POCKETS Yet, only 49 of producers
polled indicate they supplement.
15
WHY CHOOSE BLOCKS?
  • Free choice convenience
  • Easy to handle in rough country
  • Improved herd performance at predicable cost
  • Self-limiting intake control
  • Less wasted feed
  • Fits herds with low head counts

16
Introducing SweetCake Feed Supplement Blocks
  • SweetCake is new and unique
  • New proprietary process
  • Not poured like some big blocks
  • Higher levels of meals and lower levels of
    moisture are required
  • Results in higher levels of nutrients
  • High solids content

17
SweetCake Block Features
  • High nutrient density
  • Consistent quality and composition
  • Economical for all situations
  • Low NPN compared to other blocks
  • Highly palatable
  • Consistent consumption rate
  • helps ensure animal receives adequate nutrients
  • Regulated release process

18
Regulated Release Process
  • Slows the release of ammonia into the rumen
  • Improved safety for animal
  • More efficient protein utilization
  • No other block contains this benefit

19
A Good Balance
Pressed Poured
Cooked
Low nutrient density Lower cost /pound High
intake
High nutrient density Higher cost Low intake
Just Right
20
SweetCake vs. Poured Blocks
  • Improved consumption consistency
  • Lower moisture content
  • Increased nutrient density
  • Lower NPN
  • Reduced need for reactant materials improves
    animal acceptance of product and generates space
    for needed nutrition
  • Flexibility in formulation and composition

21
SweetCake vs. Pressed Blocks
  • Less waste
  • Larger size improves convenience
  • Higher molasses content improves forage and
    nitrogen utilization
  • Lower NPN
  • Improved weatherability

22
SweetCake vs. Cooked Blocks
  • More economical
  • Less hydroscopic action in warm weather
  • Improved weatherability due to fat content and
    chemical formulation
  • Reduced waste
  • Intake sufficient to correct nutritional
    imbalances and improve forage utilization

SweetCake FEEDING AND MANAGEMENT
  • Provide adequate roughage
  • Intake will vary depending on
  • Formula selected
  • Animal weight
  • Forage quality and quantity
  • Previous feeding practices
  • Upon initial placement
  • Use one block per 25 to 40 animals
  • Place near gathering areas

34
SweetCake FEEDING AND MANAGEMENT
  • Manage intake
  • To promote higher consumption
  • Increase number of blocks
  • Relocate closer to gathering areas
  • Reverse the above to restrict intake
  • Provide supplemental minerals
