Not just better - the best.

MetAMINO® the best methionine supplement in animal farming

MetAMINO®, the essential amino acid methionine from Evonik is the best methionine source for animals, that boosts growth and delivers higher yields – which translates into better business for the farmers.

Today’s livestock producers are under pressure to boost performance

Performance, effectiveness, efficiency — all key words for scientists, nutritionists and livestock producers when discussing animal nutrition. In the animal farming business, performance is defined by getting the most return from your animals and achieving the highest level of productivity, at the lowest possible cost. All while ensuring animal health and well-being.

This can be achieved only if the methionine source used is correctly supplemented. But in an industry that relies heavily on natural raw materials, inconsistencies are unavoidable.

Everything that goes into the feed formulation affects the bottom line, and since all feed sources vary in their amino acid content, adding supplemental methionine requires precision to achieve optimal effect.

MetAMINO®, is among the most high-impact feed supplements for animals, that can boost animal growth and deliver higher yields – which translates into better business for you.

Compensate the methionine deficiency of your animals

With MetAMINO®, you can ensure the adequate supply of sulfur amino acids, particularly the essential methionine. Because methionine is first-limiting in typical poultry diets, its use has been well established for many years.

Diets for piglets and growing pigs can also show a considerable deficiency in methionine, especially when formulated to achieve low nitrogen excretion for ecological reasons. This can be conveniently compensated for by using MetAMINO®.

To supply methionine to dairy cows, Evonik offers Mepron®, a rumen-stable form of methionine, which is simply the most cost-effective methionine source for dairy rations. Mepron® delivers highly concentrated DL-methionine precisely where it benefits the animal most, in the small intestine, boosting milk production and reducing food costs and improving overall competitiveness.

MetAMINO® - The tech bit

Methionine effectively boosts meat yield and business results but not all methionine sources are equal. But dry crystalline methionine (DLM) delivers the best results by far: whereas liquid methionine hydroxy analog (MHA-FA) adds unnecessary mass to the feed mix, DLM adds nothing but pure quality. Meaning significantly superior performance for your business.

MetAMINO® dry crystalline methionine (DLM) provides unsurpassed quality, offering 100% bioefficacy and more than 99% purity, which contributes significantly to optimal livestock performance. Directly digestible, MetAMINO® enables superior meat yield and feed conversion while offering easier handling and dosing.

Feed mills and livestock producers alike value MetAMINO® for consistently excellent results, 100% reliable quality, and easy compliance with regulations, norms, and standards.
