Ruminants

Bio Protect

BioProtect is a grain, protein or finished feed processing aid that slows the ruminal breakdown of nutrients, managing the way they digest, and positively affect the nutrient supply.

  • BioProtect slows the breakdown of Starch in the rumen, making starch from wheat breakdown more like starch from corn
  • This in turn reduces the peak in propionate production, positively effecting both the rumen pH and hepatic processing of the propionate, but still yielding the same amount of propionate
  • BioProtect protects the true protein in the grain from ruminal degradation, but maintains its digestibility, thus increasing the DUP contact of the feed, and the Amino Acid delivery to the small intestine
