Metasmart, an effective source of metabolizable methionine.

An essential nutrient in dairy rations, Metasmart helps to increase milk yield, improve butterfat and protein as well as health and fertility.

MetaSmart is available in 25kg bags.


In all dairy rations, there is a shortfall in the amount of methionine available compared to the methionine requirement.

MetaSmart provides two sources of methionine activity for increased milk yield, butterfat, and protein. MetaSmart is the isopropyl ester of the hydroxy analogue of methionine (HMBi or HMTBi).

The keys to the success of MetaSmart are:

  • It provides HMBa (HMTBa) to the rumen microorganisms
  • It is an effective source of metabolizable methionine

50% of MetaSmart® is absorbed through the rumen wall, hydrolyzed to HMBa (HMTBa), and is available as a metabolizable methionine source to the cow. The other 50% is available as HMBa for utilization in the rumen.

MetaSmart can be pelleted, included in most protein blends and mineral feeds and is available in liquid form.


  • Improved milk yields
  • Increased butterfat
  • Increased milk protein
  • Improved health
  • Improved fertility

Testimonial / Case Study

More pregnancies were maintained since the inclusion of Smartamine M. Losses were reduced from 19% to 7% between pregnancy check 1 and 2.

  • Lower Average Days in Milk
  • Less Re-breeding
  • Less Culls

Methionine Promotes Health & Reproductive Efficiency 

A study conducted showed that cases of metabolic diseases were decreased when Smartamine M was included in the diet. This in turn may help with reproductive efficiency and getting cows back in calf quicker.

Why use farmgate nutrition?

  • Improve intakes
  • Higher milk yields
  • Reduce body condition score losses
  • Greater reproductive efficiency
  • Lower levels of SARA
  • Heathier, more profitable cows
