12% Energy Cake is a premium quality high energy cake formulated to provide supplemental energy, protein, minerals and vitamins to cattle on high forage diets.
12% Energy Cake can be fed any time forage supply is limited, forage quality limits productivity or when supplemental energy is required to reach and/or maintain a targeted level of production.
Digestible energy is the most common limiting factor to livestock production. 12% Energy Cake provides a high level of supplemental energy in the form of digestible fiber. Unlike grain-based supplements that decrease forage digestion, digestible fiber provided by 12% Energy Cake can increase utilization of the basal forage diet by stimulating rumen microbial growth. Digestible energy value of the basal forage diet can be further increased with proper protein supplementation.
12% Energy Cake is formulated with a combination of rumen degradable, and rumen non-degradable protein. A combination of supplemental rumen degradable, non-degradable protein ensures that adequate protein is available for fetal growth and/or lactation and that rumen microorganisms have an adequate supply of degradable protein to maximize forage digestion. Increased forage digestion means more energy for increased production efficiency.
Flexible Feeding Rate
Digestible energy, protein and mineral content of forages declines with increasing maturity. Feeding rate can be increased as forage quality decreases to maintain an acceptable level of performance.
Minerals and Vitamins
Proper mineral and vitamin supplementation aids forage digestion, protein and energy utilization, reproductive efficiency and disease resistance.
Choice of Additives
Proper use of feed additives can increase weight gain and feed utilization; refer to product tag for specific claim. 12% Energy Cake is available with feed additives at FDA-approved levels.

Feed 12% Energy Cake to cattle at the rate of 2.0 to 6.0 pounds daily when grazing range or consuming other types of roughage. Offer an appropriate mineral depending on roughage source along with salt on a free-choice basis. Nutrient requirements of livestock vary in different parts of the country depending on quality and amount of roughage available, season and age, size and stage of production of the animal.
Provide fresh clean water at all times.
This product, which contains added copper, must not be fed to sheep or related species that have a low tolerance level to copper.
