E. Markert manages the farmer's cooperative Reichenhausen in Erbenhausen, Thuringia, 30 km east of Fulda. He farms together with 24 employees nearly 770 ha of grassland and 330 ha cropland, mainly cereals, rape seed, corn (ensiling) and forage cropping.

Twice a day 300 Holstein Frisians get milked in a double 10-unit “Lemmer Fullwood herringbone parlor. Actually (May 2013) the milk production averages 10,900 kg with 3.95 % of fat resp. 3.30% protein.
A “Scariboldi” fodder mixer distributes total mixed rations to the 2 classes - high-yielding plus first calving cows and a less producing one. 50% DM corn silage, 50% DM wilted grass silage, ensiled spent grains; supple-mented with a rape seed-soya bean meal mixture, crushed corn and a VILOMIN® mineral feed are used in several rations.

Since June 2012 the co-op adds VILOMIN® ProtiSpar® mineral feed to particular rations very successfully.
”We stroke a new path. ProtiSpar®'s action principle allows the conclusion even of an improved energy balance. So that was our motivation for an “on top” dosing.”

”However this effect we didn't expect at all. A “power” increase of
1.5-2.0 kg of milk per cow a day, strong substances, urea less than
200 ppm, less reduced vitality, a raised fertility rate and less claw or bone impairments.”

Markert's conclusion: ”ProtiSpar® stood the test. Henceforward it will be an inherent part of our rations.”
