Cost Effective Source of Protein and Energy
Palm Kernel Expeller (PKE)
Palm Kernel Expeller or PKE (also known as Palm Kernel Extract, or Palm Kernel Cake), is a by-product of palm kernel oil production.
PKE is a high quality, high energy supplement feed that can be safely fed to most ruminant livestock. Owing to its many benefits as a cost-effective alternative to other
DAABON offers PKE among other products with high integrity, full traceability and the highest standards of sustainability.
7 Reasons Why PKE Should be Considered in Stock Feed
1. Cost competitive stock feed
It is a by-product of the palm oil industry, making it an extremely cost- competitive supplementary livestock feed ingredient.
2. Totally safe for most livestock
It can be safely fed to most ruminant livestock, dairy, beef cattle, and weaned calves.
3. Suitable for lactating dairy cows
It is particularly suitable as a supplementary feed for lactating dairy cows, and can be used year-round to increase milk solids production.
4. Feeding PKE is easy
It can be fed as part of the Compound feed ration or as a straight through the TMR. No expensive specialized feeding equipment is required, so supplement feed costs can be kept to a minimum.
5. High levels of protein and oil
It is a balanced feed that supplies high levels of protein and oil, providing nutrients essential for sustained production and growth, which grazing may not provide at certain times of year. Desirable fatty acids to promote milk fat production are essential for maintaining a stable diet.
6. Can improve fertility
Good levels of rumen bypass protein will ensure the outputs from digestion and will benefit fertility.
7. Even distribution throughout herd
Promotes milk fat synthesis, increasing value per liter. A rich source of digestible fibre. Good supply of non-starch digestible fibre energy and a very rumen friendly raw material. Allows energy intakes to be maximised without increasing the risk of acidosis associated with cereal feeding.
