Dairy Gold is a TMR enhancer product line designed for on-farm mixing while the traditional Liquid Protein Supplement LPS42 is designed for free choice lick tank feeding.

Liquid feed supplements are nutrient dense, highly palatable and easy to use.

Rumen Bugs

LFI products feed the rumen bugs.  The sugars (soluble carbohydrates) stimulate the fiber digesting rumen bacteria so they can breakdown the forage fiber into volatile fatty acids (VFA’s) which the cows use for energy. The nutrients in LFI liquid products allow the rumen bugs to grow and multiple. Rumen bacteria are also the highest quality protein for cattle so by increasing rumen bacteria, your increasing rumen protein.


The common ingredients in both Dairy Gold and LPS is Louisiana cane molasses and further supplemented with several other sources of sugars. All sugars are not created equally; some rumen bugs prefer sugar from molasses (sucrose), other prefer sugars for corn syrup (fructose), others from whey (lactose) etc – so LFI products supply sugars from at least 4 sources – which maximizes rumen microbial production.


LFI products contain high levels of soluble protein to complement the sugars.  Soluble protein / Nitrogen is required by the rumen bugs for rapid bacterial growth. NPN sources used in LPS utilize a slow-release technology that supplies Nitrogen in the rumen at the same rate as soybean meal.

Rumen Fermentation

Optimizing rumen fermentation is the name of the game. LFI sugar rich products, combined with soluble protein, provide excellent nutrients for the rumen microbial population  - which allows for optimal rumen fermentation. By using LFI products, your cows are getting more energy out of your forages and generating more high quality microbial protein which lead to improved efficiency and health – positively impacting your bottom line.

Our Mill Products » Liquid Feeds International Ltd

The industry premium product is GOLD COAT, quality ingredients with technological know-how in putting together a product that is second to none in the industry. While we do have a few customers who handle our molasses, the majority of users purchase a blend that enhances the flow of the molasses. Our Louisiana Cane Molasses comes into our facility with a very high level of sugar (84 BRIX) and is extremely viscous.


Mini-Lick Tank » Liquid Feeds International Ltd

Give dairymen the flexibility of slipping the tank into the smaller stalls used in grouping heifers in a free stall situation. Daily consumption depends on many variables (principally body size and the supply of other energy sources). Place the lick tank away from water source (although be sure your cattle have access to unlimited water). LPS does not contain added salt, so be sure to provide a salt lick for your cattle as well.


Swine » Liquid Feeds International Ltd

While the majority of our customers are on all liquid programs, there are other customers who blend our liquid premixes onto their dry feed in order to take advantage of the benefits of organic acids, mineral bioavailability and all the associated benefits.


42% Protein » Liquid Feeds International Ltd

LPS is a molasses based liquid supplement that provides additional protein and energy when the current forage program does not provide enough energy and protein for the desired rate of gain/growth. Phosphorus is provided by natural products as well as phosphoric acid – the most bioavailable form of P which dually acts to control intake. Soluble protein levels compliment the sugar levels for optimal rumen fermentation.
