Opening the Gates to Dairy Health and Milk Production
LysiPEARL™ is an encapsulated product that includes key nutrients that are able to bypass the rumen to be released in the gastrointestinal tract where they are absorbed more efficiently. This encapsulation also allows the product to be free flowing and resistant to physical damage in typical feed processing, while balancing dairy rations for the most limiting amino acids methionine and lysine, rather than crude protein. Encapsulated lysine provides a convenient, effective and cutting edge approach to protein nutrition.
More to Consider
Milk production and processing is one of the most important and rapidly developing branches of agriculture in the world. While in the past most of the activities were focused on milk volume, today’s competitive market demands we take a holistic approach – the cow’s overall health, milk quality and environmental impact.
Start with Lysine
Inadequate levels of lysine in a cow’s diet negatively impacts milk and milk component production. In dairy diets around the world, methionine and lysine are typically the first two limiting amino acids. When a cow can’t naturally produce enough of an amino acid to perform physiological functions, the amino acid is considered limiting and must be supplied in the diet.
The amino acid Lysine plays a significant role in milk and milk component production. LysiPEARL is an encapsulated product that includes key nutrients that are able to bypass the rumen to be released in the gastrointestinal tract where they are absorbed more efficiently.
LysiPEARL is manufactured at Kemin facilities in the USA and Europe and is being used in dairy herds around the world.
In today’s dairy diets, the variability of feedstuffs leads to uncertainty. This uncertainty often results in diets that do not provide the targeted amounts of lysine. To satisfy a lysine deficiency, producers often turn to expensive lysine-rich raw materials such as soya and rapeseed. But even these raw materials have sub-optimal levels of lysine and are subject to variability which can result in feeding lysine that may not be intestinally available to the cow.
LysiPEARL is designed to deliver a specific amount of intestinally available lysine to the cow. The LysiPEARL technology is supported by data-driven research with proven results at commercial dairies. Utilizing encapsulated amino acids in feed rations permits dairy producers to better meet the specific amino acid requirements of the animal, allowing cows to reach maximum milk production and milk components and more consistent absorption of protein nutrition.
Ruminant nutritionists and their customers benefit from investments made by Kemin in the science and technology to create LysiPEARL – which supports:
- Feeding diets lower in crude protein.
- Achieving more efficient production of milk and milk components.
- Reducing the overall nitrogen excretion into the environment.
The proprietary spray freezing process is a highly effective method for encapsulating key nutrients that can bypass the rumen and be released in the gastrointestinal tract where they are absorbed more efficiently. Kemin manufactures encapsulated lysine as LysiPEARL.
LysiPEARL is a state-of-the-art solution to supplement lysine in an efficient, flexible and easy-to-use way. Its unique encapsulation technology allows it to be an effective bio-available lysine source.
- Is encapsulated using a proprietary spray freezing process;
- Reduces nitrogen excretion when rations are balanced for lysine; and
- Provides nutritionists greater flexibility in choosing ingredients to balance rations.
Improved Protein Status
Balancing rations for metabolizable Lysine and Methionine, and incorporating a ruminal source of HMB has been shown to improve milk volume, and protein and fat concentration. There is growing evidence that the increase in milk protein and fat concentrations observed with Lys and Met balancing result in an improved protein status that can have far-reaching effects on health and performance.
Balancing dairy rations for the most limiting amino acids, methionine and lysine, rather than crude protein is the cutting edge approach when it comes to protein nutrition.
