The truth for all producers - profitable production begins with healthy animals. Gut health is a concern that is common across all species of animal production from cattle, to swine to poultry to aquaculture. A healthy digestive system leads to better nutrient absorption, optimal feed utilization and improved animal performance.
The two active ingredients in Novus''s NEXT ENHANCE® family of products - garlic oil and cinnamaldehyde - are specially formulated to favorably modify the gut environment producing healthier animals. They also are protected by NaturCoatTM, a microencapsulation system that assures controlled release and protection from breakdown in the rumen for optimal impact.
Garlic oil can help enhance propionate production while reducing methane production. Garlic oil has been shown to inhibit the production of methane, saving energy that can be utilized for growth and production and simultaneously limiting the emission of greenhouse gas.
Cinnamaldehyde slows down the breakdown of peptides and amino acids which results in increased availability of peptides and amino acids with lower ammonia production. As a result, a waste product and pollutant is reduced and protein utilization is increased. The net result is more metabolizable protein delivered to the small intestine.
Together, these two plant extracts affect rumen fermentation to improve the efficiency of energy and nitrogen utilization. The overall nutritional situation and health of the animal improves due to more efficient utilization of feedstuffs.
- Next Enhance® 150 is a premixture specially formulated to enhance feed palatability. The herbal taste sensation supports feed utilization and oxidative balance.
- Next Enhance® 150 Premix is a premixture specially formulated to more efficiently utilize feedstuffs and support oxidative balance. It is a product that works to optimize feed utilization and is perfectly suited for feed mills and on-farm applications.
- Next Enhance® 300 feed ingredient premixture is a combination of active plant components - garlic oil and cinnamaldehyde - formulated and protected by a patented matrix system. This product enhances the animal appetite, especially during periods of stress, and helps maintain rumen fermentation so dietary protein and carbohydrates are more efficiently utilized.
- Next Enhance® Feedlot 30 feed ingredient premixture is the more diluted form of the product. It contains the same appetite-enhancing active plant components to maintain rumen fermentation so dietary protein and carbohydrates are more efficiently utilized.
