If you feed unprotected lysine and methionine, it will be quickly degraded to ammonia in the rumen. It is better to feed rumen protected lysine and methionine.Or else, supplement live yeast that would help enhancing rumen microbial growth which in turn would supply all essential amino acids to the host animal, including lysine and methionine.

As of January 2017, the FDA began a stricter regulation of antibiotics commonly used in the animal-feeding industry. Livestock and poultry producers alike have been accused of overfeeding various antibiotics, largely for growth promotion purposes (i.e., for increased feed efficiency and profitability). The ones the medical industry and the consumer have been most concerned with are those deemed m ...

Summer losses in milk production are usually related to the negative impact of summer heat stress on the lactating cow. Actually, this is true, due to the large negative effect of heat stress on feed consumption and the efficiency of feed utilization of the lactating cow, as well as on reproductive traits. Recently, it was found that also dry cows, although they are not producing milk, are negativ ...

Dear Gagan ji We should calculate requirement of fat on the basis of dry matter requirement of an animal. Based upon it, we can add by pass fat. Higher concentration can effect rumen optimisation

Fat found in milk originates from three sources; de novo fatty acids synthesised in the milk gland of the cow (short-chain C4 to C14) comprise about 20-30% of total milk fatty acids, preformed fatty acids (long chain C18:0, C18:1 and C18:3) represent 35-40%, and the mixed group of fatty acids (C16) make up about 35%. Research has shown that the percentage of milk de novo fatty acids is positively ...

INTRODUCTION Rumen microbes ferment dietary carbohydrates and protein to obtain ATP, which in turn is the major source of energy required for microbial growth. The two major reactions of rumen fermentation are volatile fatty acids (VFA) and microbial cells; the former are a primary source of metabolizable energy and the latter the primary source of metabolizable amino acids for maintenance and mi ...

Agreed at the present time calcium soap is the most available rumen inert fat supplement but it was not initially designed to meet the specific nutritional needs of high yield dairy cows. Rather, it was developed to find out a way of delivering palm fatty acid distillate to the dairy cow in a form that would not upset the rumen function and to make use of the PFAD that was then so plenty. Today we ...

It was during 1980's when the concept of functional food first took its commercial shape in Japan. Since then, the business space for functional food has been expanding and will continue to rise over the coming years. Functional foods are referred to as the food additives with health benefits. The growing awareness among the consumers pertaining to the relation between health, nutrition, and diet ...

Relative feed value has been used for a number of years to indicate the overall feed value of forage. In recent years, there have been some changes considered to make this assessment more accurate in regards to predicting the feed value of forage. It is well accepted that there is a correlation between the acid detergent fiber (ADF) portion of forage and the energy value of the forage. One of the ...

Introduction Proper sampling of ration ingredients and submitting those samples for nutrient analysis to a good lab are essential components of diet formulation. The relative importance of sampling, analytical, and real variation on overall variation in nutrient composition data of ingredients has been discussed at previous conferences (Weiss et al., 2012; Weiss et al., 2014). Sampling variation ...
