SmartAmine M

Rumen-protected methionine product, Smartamine® M is the industry standard for encapsulated methionine.

An essential nutrient for all dairy rations to help achieve peak yield, improve milk constituents levels as well as improved health and reproductive efficiency.

Smartamine M is available in 25kg bags.

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

The three keys to the success of Smartamine® M:

  • High level of rumen protection

  • Complete release in the abomasum

  • Total absorption in the small intestine

Smartamine has a pH sensitive coating meaning that coating protects the methionine from rumen fermentation. When exposed to the acidic conditions in the abomasum, the pH-sensitive coating releases the methionine to be absorbed in the small intestine.

Rumen protection is necessary because methionine is degraded in the rumen. The Smartamine® M technology is adapted to ruminant digestive processes. The methionine is protected in the rumen, then absorbed in the small intestine, ensuring high methionine bioavailability.

Supplemental methionine helps limit metabolic problems. This promotes peak milk, saves costs, and reduces early culling.

Smartamine® M is easily mixed into mineral feeds, protein feeds, and grain mixes but cannot be pelleted.

Benefits

  • Improved protein levels in milk
  • Supports milk yields
  • Improved health
  • Improved reproductive efficiency
  • Reduced culling

Testimonial / Case Study

Methionine Promotes Health

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.

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
