How Mepron® can benefit your farm | Evonik


The world’s population continues to grow and so does the global demand for milk. In order to sustainably meet these needs, farms must optimize production. Feeding has a great influence on the health and performance of cows, and on the economic and ecological sustainability of milk production. Optimized protein supply plays a major role, because the essential amino acids needs of the cow must be met while excreting as little superfluous nitrogen as possible. Methionine is important in dairy cattle rations as the amino acid that most strongly limits milk yield in dairy cows. It is particularly economical and ecologically efficient if the methionine is provided by Mepron®. Mepron® provides methionine in a highly available form and contributes significantly to the methionine entering the cow’s metabolism. It is needed to improve the cow’s liver health, the immune function, and protect the cow against oxidative stress. This in turn ensures that the cow is fitter, has a higher feed intake and is therefore more efficient. Mepron® has the highest methionine content of any rumen-protected methionine product on the market. Its ethyl cellulose coating serves as a protective layer for the methionine nucleus, provides very high rumen protection, which together with high digestibility, is guaranteed by the slow-release technology. All these functions make Mepron® unique. The benefits of using Mepron® are manifold. For example, when balancing rations for amino acids the portion of expensive protein feed can be reduced, increasing the profitability of the farm. The nitrogen efficiency is also increased because less is excreted. The use of Mepron® makes sense for operations that want to improve their nitrogen efficiency. Its effects are always demonstrated in practical trials. The optimal feeding of cows is the basis of economically and ecologically successful milk production
