We’ve taken our quality, double-screened Palm Kernel Expeller (PKE) and molasses and mixed them for you.

The latest blending technology enables PKE to be precisely blended with 10%, 20% or 30% molasses to create PKExtra 10®, PKExtra 20® and PKExtra 30®.

PKExtra is suitable for all feed system types, including silos and in-shed feed systems.

  • Precision blended. Our feed blender conveniently adds molasses to PKE in precise quantities, saving you money on expensive molasses feeding infrastructure and freight to farm.
  • Improved taste. PKExtra’s palatability increases feed intake for improved condition, resulting in less waste and more milk in your vat.
  • Minimises dust. Less dust means reduced respiratory issues for your herd, less mess and less wastage.
  • Better feed conversion. Molasses provides energy and helps aid PKE digestion. This can mean higher milksolids produced per kg of feed and more milk for your money.
  • Cost-effective. PKExtra has lower freight to farm costs so it’s a cheaper way to get molasses to your farm.*
  • Select your minerals. Since PKExtra is made-to-order, you can opt to include minerals in order to meet your herd’s seasonal mineral requirements.
