Livestock nutrition serves a specific purpose in maintaining livestock health, weight, and product viability. Aurorium offers nutrients, nutrient protectants, preservatives, and flavor enhancers. Nutrients increase an animal’s resistance to diseases while helping to maintain body functions. Nutrient protectants enhance the effectiveness of nutrients and protect them from degradation. Preservatives help extend the shelf life of livestock feed, while flavor enhancers help to improve palatability.
Niacinamide, also known as nicotinamide or nicotinic acid amide, is the water-soluble, active form of vitamin B3. Vitamin B3 plays key roles in cellular metabolism and energy production. It is a crucial ingredient for producing brain energy known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the energy currency of the intracellular metabolism of all living organisms.
Niacinamide supplementation for animal nutrition produces a more complete diet that improves growth and overall health. It has been known to increase FE (feed efficiency) in livestock. Feed efficiency measures the relative ability of cows to turn feed nutrients into milk or milk components. In dairy cattle, vitamin B3 improves digestive health, which could help prevent metabolic disorders.
Polymers made from 2-Vinylpyridine are used as nutrient protectants in animal feed for beef and dairy cattle protecting the nutrient ingredients from degradation. 2-Vinylpyridine polymers provide rumen-stability to methionine and lysine, followed by dispersion of these nutrients in the abomasum of the cow, allowing for absorption through the intestines. Protecting nutrients from breakdown as they pass through the multiple stomach compartments of the cow, promotes a more efficient and cost-effective nutrient program.
preservatives, flavor enhancers
In animal feed, Jarace SA (sodium acetate) acts as a preservative and flavor enhancer.
Milk fat is highly influenced by diet nutrient composition. Acetates are a major source of energy and vital nutrients for milk fat synthesis in dairy cows. Studies have shown that feed supplementation with acetates can cause an increase in milk fat yield greater than 30%.
Livestock nutrition provided from feed is key in the energy, growth, and overall health of cattle. Protecting nutrients found in feed from breakdown as they pass though the multiple stomach compartments of the cow, promotes a more efficient and cost-effective nutrient program. Polymers made from 2-Vinylpyridine are used as nutrient protectants in animal feed for beef and dairy cattle protecting the ingredients from degradation.
