Amino acids, the building blocks of protein, are critical for component and milk production. Lysine and methionine are
the two most limiting amino acids, which means peak production and efficiencies cannot be reached without proper
It is more than feeding amino acids; it is feeding the optimal amounts and proportion of amino acids.
When amino acids are fed at optimal amounts and ratios, additional benefits can be realized including:
- Reduced crude protein in the ration
- Improved nutrient utilization
- Increased feed efficiency
- Reduced nitrogen excretion and its impact on the environment
Simply put, amino acid balancing provides the critical nutrients cows need for peak performance throughout lactation.
