When dairy producers and nutritionists need help reaching production potential, they can look to Kemin for help. Kemin supports customers by providing superior nutritional benefits for every stage of life. Increasing performance, improving health and reducing environmental impacts while meeting the animals’ nutritional needs leads to increased profitability. Science-backed nutritional solutions are essential in preventing performance issues before they occur.
Trace minerals play a critical role in meeting nutritional requirements for dairy cattle. The metabolic functions of dairy cattle need minerals to support growth, development, immune function and reproductive performance. Bioavailable minerals need to be supplemented to support the hemostatic state of the animal during all phases of life. KemTRACE® Chromium and KemTRACE® Zinc are staples to meet nutritional requirements dairy diets, as recommended by the National Research Council (NRC).
For more than 50 years, Kemin has invested in technology that’s revolutionized encapsulation, improving the manufacturing and, in turn, the bioavailability of nutrients. This ensure nutrients are delivered through the rumen and released where they are best absorbed and used by dairy animals.
The Kemin rumen-protected and intestinally available solutions are developed using two proprietary encapsulation techniques:
1. MicroPEARLS® spray freezing technology — for rumen-protected methionine and choline products
2. GEMS manufacturing process — used to produce USA Lysine®, an essential amino acid
Each of these encapsulation methods is strictly monitored and controlled, delivering a durable rumen-protected product with a high level of bioavailability.
