Branko Stuburic Nitrogen emissions contribute substantially to the carbon footprint of dairy farms. N2O is the most potent greenhouse gas (265 CO2 equivalents), higher than methane (28 CO2 equivalents). Optimizing the amino acids supply with methionine from Mepron and reducing the dietary CP level leads to increased nitrogen efficiency (milk protein N per N intake) and lower N emissions and low ...

Shahzaib Shakeel One half of DL-methionine is already L-methionine. D-methionine is transformed to L but at a slow rate so that the D-form acts as a potential reservoir for L-Met.The downside of using an analogue is that it is not methionine. It needs to be converted to methionine which consumes energy which is a downside on particular under heat stress conditions. The analogue is a 50:50 mixture ...

Hi Joe, Yes, every time more metabolic roles for methionine are discovered. Considering methionine just as a tool to improve milk protein yield is quite outdated...

Hazem Hassanien The pure product is costly per kg. As Mepron supplies methionine in a highly concentrated form (85% DL-methionine), it helps covering the first limiting amino acid without using high amounts of protein feeds that are more expensive per unit of methionine. In addition, it helps to reduce the nitrogen load and to improve the nitrogen efficiency. As total feed costs are reduced with ...

Many European dairy farmers suffered a lot from the bad milk price situation in the past few years. Fortunately, prices have stabilized over the last two years and farmers look to continue to be profitable. Nonetheless, a more volatile price situation for dairy products is expected for the future. With feed costs representing the largest input in cost of production, it is of high importance to u ...

Dear Branko Stuburic , the same aspects apply to protected lysine as well. It needs to be well protected from microbial degradation but release the lysine in the small intestine for absorption. A combination of methionine and lysine and one product is convenient from a handling aspect (just one product, not two). It it not the most economical solution because you can't adjust methionine and lysine ...

Joe Magadi The combination with histidine would make it less economically efficient. The high load of the first limiting amino acid methionine (85%) together with its unique coating makes Mepron the most efficient methionine source for ruminants. Histidine is pretty expensive even in a unprotected form.

Branko Stuburic Mepron is equipped with a unique ethylcellulose coating. Feed grade DL-methionine will be used by the rumen microbes. Methionine needs to be protected from microbial degradation to become available for absorption in the intestine and subsequently available for the metabolism including protein synthesis. Mepron's coating enables the methionine in its core to bypass the rumen microb ...

Mohammad Salahuddin The inclusion rate depends on the production level, feed ingredients, and stage of lactation. The range of 10-20 g for lactating cows at 35-45kg milk is a realistic rough figure.
