How Rethinking Ruminant Diets Can Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
The ruminant sector faces many challenges. These include increasing raw material prices, high volatility of agri-food products, a worldwide decrease in meat and milk consumption, and the threats posed by global warming.
Fortunately, Kemin offers you a unique opportunity to dramatically improve the efficiency of your ruminant feed. By formulating for amino acids and adding rumen-protected Methionine and Lysine to the diet of your ruminants, you will enhance the profitability of your business while further developing its sustainability. In addition, adding rumen-protected amino acids to feed will reduce nitrogen, nitrous oxide, and phosphorus waste and reduce your total carbon footprint per kilogram of feed, milk and meat.
Further, formulating by amino acids has additional dramatic effects. Improved feed efficiency reduces the total cost while increasing milk production and quality. Animals grow faster, are less susceptible to illness, and reproduce better — all factors that drive the profitability of your farm.
Kemin is proud to offer you the opportunity to unlock these benefits for your business. Diego Martinez del Olmo, Product Manager, recently recorded a presentation focusing on how implementing this feeding strategy can improve profitability and sustainability.
