- Features &
- Feeds Vivergo
- Typical rations
- Storage &
|Lower protein costs||The high quality protein in the Vivergo Syrup is competitively priced compared to traditional liquid protein feeds, e.g. high protein liquids||Reduced feed cost|
|Feeding flexibility||Vivergo Syrup can be fed to all ruminant livestock||Reduces number of feeds required|
|Increase intake||Vivergo Syrup is very palatable and complements dry feeds allowing intakes to be maximised||Lifts intakes of all nutrients|
|Dust suppression||Reduces dust in home mixed and top dressed rations by binding smaller feed particles||Increase dry matter intakes as animals find less dusty feed more appealing|
|Reduce sorting||The sticky nature of Vivergo Syrup reduces sorting of favourable ingredients from TMR mixes, especially rapidly fermentable concentrates which can increase the incidence of acidosis||Consistent intake and performance|
|Improve rumen efficiency||The high proportion of yeast in distillery products, like Vivergo Syrup, has been shown to stimulate rumen activity, increase fibre digestion and microbial protein production||Improved performance|
|Consistent high quality nutrition||A readily available and reliable British feed source, delivering consistent high quality for all year round feeding||Better feeding consistency|
|Easy traceability||Vivergo Syrup is produced in the UK and from UK wheat resulting in a shorter and more local supply chain||Peace of mind|
|Non-GM feeds||Vivergo Syrup is made from non-GM UK wheat||Produce livestock products for non-GM fed markets'|
Feeds Vivergo Syrup can replace
- Rapeseed meal - Plus provides extra energy compared to rapeseed meal
- High protein liquids - Plus rich in yeast fragments
- Forage - Proviso that total ration structure is maintained using straw, preferably wheat
Capitalising on Vivergo Syrup will usually increase the amount of low protein energy feeds and forages to balance the protein. Visit the livestock specific pages for details on how this varies for dairy, beef, sheep, young-stock, or pigs.
|Dairy||Milking cows||up to 10kg/cow/day|
|Dry cows||up to 4kg/cow/day|
|Beef||Grower & finisher||up to 20% of total dry matter intake|
|Stores||up to 20% of total dry matter intake|
|Suckler cow||up to 5kg/cow/day|
|Youngstock||Heifer||up to 4kg/head/day|
|Calf||up to 1.5kg/head/day|
|Sheep||Pregnant ewes||up to 2.0kg/ewe/day|
|Lactating ewes||up to 2.5kg/ewe/day|

Vivergo Syrup offers a versatile feeding solution and can be used in all types of systems.
- Trough feeding
- Top dressed onto forage mix
- Mixed rations (mixer wagon or forage box):
- Full TMR (total mixed rations) and partial TMR
- Buffer feeding
- Provides a good balance to high-starch feeds - Cereals, maize meals, confectionary and bakery products
- Complements low-protein forages - Maize & whole crop silages
- Supplements low-protein feeds - Cereals, Sugar Beet Feed
- Rumen-bypass proteins - SoyPass, Prototec.
Storage & handling
Tanks should be built to hold and dispatch bulk liquids and care should be taken to ensure they are cleaned out regularly to ensure no build up of sediment. The use of 4-inch diameter pipe work, or the metric equivalent, is adequate to handle Vivergo Syrup.

Vivergo Syrup feed Composition Back to top
Vivergo Syrup is predominantly a mix of the non-starch low fibre fraction of wheat, e.g. wheat proteins, post fermentation, plus a significant proportion of dead yeast that grew in the fermentor.
By reference to Pot Ale Syrup which in principle is similar to Vivergo Syrup, but derived from barley not wheat as is the case with Vivergo Syrup, the energy content is estimated to be greater than 14ME (MJ/kg dry matter). Vivergo Syrup is rich in yeast fragments that are known to stimulate rumen fermentation and lead to higher digestibility and therefore greater energy extraction and hence ME. Many farmers recognise that distillery products ‘feed’ better than their analysis would suggest.
It is difficult to measure in protein degradability in distillers’ feeds, as the conventional techniques rely on measuring the rate protein is lost from a fine mesh bag and assuming this represents the rumen degradable element. Clearly adding a liquid compromised of small particles (soup) to a bag will result in the majority being readily lost from the bag, but it is recognised that not all these fractions are highly degradable and probably leave the rumen undegraded only to be digested in the small intestine making a significant contribution to rumen by-pass protein (DUP).
Feeding experiences from a practical and research perspective would suggest that Vivergo Syrup will feed ‘above’ its analysis as demonstrated for Spey Syrup (Pot Ale) in research studies and practice.
Oil in Vivergo Syrup is predominantly unsaturated fat in the same way as that found in grass, grass and maize silages, etc. However, feeding 5kg to dairy cows would only add ~ 60g to a typical daily intake of 1100g.
Vivergo Syrup is rich in phosphorus, approximately 1.25% of dry matter that is vital to the rumen microbes and animals for key functions, e.g. energy metabolism and bone formation.
