Mini-Lick Tank » Liquid Feeds International Ltd

By: Liquid Feeds  09-12-2011

The Mini Lick Tank provided by LFI is creating excitement in the dairy industry. It’s small oval size, (37" L X 26" W X 20" H) give dairymen the flexibility of slipping the tank into the smaller stalls used in grouping heifers in a free stall situation. The sturdy polyurethane tank comes has two 22 inch lick wheels and holds approximately 190 liters, roughly 250 kg of LPS42.

Ingenious farmers have come up with many ways to fill these tanks – using 1 tonne polyurethane totes or larger storage tanks as nurse tanks. LFI fills the nurse tanks and the farmer fills the mini tanks.

Daily consumption depends on many variables (principally body size and the supply of other energy sources). Typical consumption is about 0.5 kg / head / day.

Typically, the mini lick tank with two wheels can comfortably feed 40 head.

Ideally, 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.

Perfect tool for saving time for farm managers:

• No mess

• Easy to use

• Durable

All sugars are not created equally; some rumen bugs prefer sugar from molasses, other prefer sugars for corn syrup, others from whey etc – so LFI products supply sugars from at least 4 sources – which maximizes rumen microbial production. 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.


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.
