As feed ingredient prices exhibit greater volatility and resources become scarcer, formulating to meet amino acids (AA) requirements with a methionine source from Novus helps to optimize rations and get the most out of feed ingredients.
ALIMET® has 88% activity by weight and is 100 percent bioavailable. ALIMET feed supplement is proven to be an effective source of methionine activity without the appetite suppression experienced when feeding DL-methionine. In addition to proven performance, ALIMET delivers an organic acid effect, reduces nitrogen excretions and supports performance during heat stress.
All methionine sources are not created equal. The forms and types of amino acids available commercially vary not only in their methionine density, but also in uptake and response in the target animal. Bioavailability has a major bearing on the overall nutritional value of the amino acid product used.
Feeding ALIMET feed supplement in livestock and poultry rations as a methionine source has been shown to:
