Daily DFMs

Lira Gold® DFMs feature research-proven ingredients to enhance digestive efficiency, increase milk production and enhance digestive health leading to improved animal well-being and productivity. With these results, Lira Gold DFMs provide a favorable return-on-investment and can significantly improve your bottom line.

Lira Gold is like an old friend – it's proven itself to me over time, and I'm not going to switch. Breeding costs and vet costs are down, cows are eating more forage and less grain while maintaining the same production, and our cows are lasting longer, so we have more replacement heifers to sell. All of these things increase our profit margin”
