Introduced nearly 14 years ago, Metasmart® has remained without equal in the dairy industry. Metasmart® represents a unique form of methionine: the isopropyl ester of the hydroxy analogue of methionine. The only pelletable methionine product, stable in liquid feeds and is available in liquid or dry forms.
Sometimes overlooked, Metasmart® not only provides metabolizable methionine for increasing milk yield, milk protein, and butter fat, it also provides HMTBa to enhance rumen function and efficiency. As the only dual-function methionine source, it provides the most cost-effective source of metabolizable methionine, while providing rumen available HMTBa.
In the rumen, HMTBa can be used as a nutrient by the rumen microbes to grow and reproduce and maximize their digestive efficiency. This increases the microbial protein flow to the cow, the highest quality protein source available. HMTBa is particularly effective at mitigating milk fat depression when the rumen environment is challenged by rations relatively high in unsaturated fatty acids and starch.
MetaSmart® is the only pelletable methionine product and is stable in liquid feeds. Available in both dry, and liquid forms.
