What is Purina® NutriTek™ Technology?

By Jeff Thorpe, Field Dairy Nutritionist

It’s some of the newest research to come out of the Purina Nutrition research farm. NutriTek Technology is a unique nutritional product that combines Diamond V® Original XPC™ with elevated amounts of antioxidants, polyphenols, and functional metabolites. This combination boosts cow health by improving immunity, which increases milk production. The increase is even greater than the cow’s response to only Diamond V, a trusted ingredient in many rations. 

How does NutriTek work?

In simple terms, it provides more antioxidant potential and protects cells from oxidative stress. NutriTek is used during critical transition times to help cows neutralize free radicals and reduce cell damage. It is also used throughout lactation to reduce oxidative stress. Purina’s research shows that it pays back in increased milk production with better cow immunity. Any way you look at it, NutriTek is a win. Your Munson Lakes Nutrition dairy consultant can show you how to get up to 4.4 lbs. more milk per cow per day by increasing DMI b  2.9 lbs. The performance of NutriTek is statistically significant, with a 98-99% probability that positive results are due to technology fed and not just chance. Your dairy consultant can give you more details on how this product works and the data behind it.

Princess Kay of the Milky Way
“Munson Lakes Nutrition LLC would like to congratulate Kyla Mauk on being crowned the new Princess Kay of the Milky Way! Kyla is the daughter of Harlan and Chris Mauk of Howard Lake. Harlan is a local dairy farmer and customer of Munson Lakes.”

Crowned from among 12 county dairy royals each year at the State Fair.

Princess Kay serves as the official goodwill ambassador for Minnesota’s 3,500 dairy farmers. Candidates must have ties to dairy farming and will appear as spokeswomen and educators at public appearances around the state.

On each of the 12 days of the fair, Princess Kay of the Milky Way and her court will have their likenesses carved into 90-pound blocks of butter. The carving takes place from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Dairy Building, where the princess and the butter sculptor interact with the audience from a rotating cooler kept at a crisp 40 degrees.
