Feed Grade Urea

48X25KG bags, total pallet size 1.2 metric tonnes.

Category: .

Urea is an economic non-protein nitrogen (NPN) source for boosting protein levels in ruminant rations.  It is also a highly effective preservative for Wholegrain and Wholecrop Cereals.

Urea as a Protein Source

Adequate protein supply to the rumen is essential to enable micro-organisms to utilise dietary energy, in particular from forage.  Ammonia is a major source of nitrogen for the synthesis of microbial protein in the rumen.  Urea when fed, is readily converted to Ammonia by urease enzyme in the rumen, thus providing an economic source of Rumen Degradable Protein.

  • Cost- effective concentrated protein source (287% crude protein)
  • Effective ‘protein booster’ for low protein feeds
  • Especially useful where maize and cereals are used in complete diets inherently low in protein.

Product Detail

  • Highly concentrated effective protein source for adult ruminants
  • Supplies rapidly available nitrogen
  • Good balancer for low protein, high energy feeds
  • Can be used to preserve moist forage or grain
  • Alkaline pH results from hydrolysis with water
  • Very toxic if offered at even moderate levels

Handling & Storage

As with other dry feeds, Feed Grade Urea should be stored in cool, dry conditions.  Usually available in bags.  Care should be taken to ensure correct amounts are weighed into rations and that the straight material is kept well away from animal contact.


Urea provides a good source of Effective Rumen Degradable Protein (ERDP) to adult ruminants, but care should always be taken to ensure diets are correctly balanced.  As feeding levels are very low due to its high ‘protein’ content, it is essential that Urea be mixed thoroughly with other feeds prior to offering to animals.
