Kemin Animal Nutrition Solutions for Dairy Cattle

Kemin helps customers raise healthy dairy cattle by providing superior nutritional benefits in every stage of life. Increasing performance, improving health and reducing environmental impacts while meeting the animals’ nutritional needs leads to increased profitability. Nutritional solutions are essential in preventing performance issues before they occur. Kemin focuses on two key nutrition platforms:

  • Minerals
  • Rumen Protection

Minerals in Dairy

Trace minerals play a critical role in the metabolic functions of dairy cattle including support for growth, development, immune function and reproductive performance. The beneficial response from proper mineral supplementation can be observed throughout an animal's life. The proper amount of 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 of dairy cattle diets, as recommended by the National Research Council (NRC).

Bioavailability Using Rumen Protection

For more than 50 years, Kemin has invested in technology that’s revolutionized encapsulation, improving the way animal nutrition products are manufactured.

Bioavailability of nutrients refers to nutrients that are absorbed and used by the dairy animal. By creating rumen protected and intestinally available products, Kemin provides highly bioavailable nutrient sources for dairy cows. Kemin uses MicroPEARLS® spray freezing technology, a proprietary encapsulation technique, for their rumen protected methionine and choline products. The proprietary GEMS manufacturing process is used to produce USA Lysine® – an essential amino acid. Each of these encapsulation methods is strictly monitored and controlled, delivering a very durable rumen protected product with a high level of bioavailability.
