High Class Bypass for Ruminants

Amipro ™ is a source of rumen bypass protein, produced from high protein soybean meal, which can be used as a feed supplement for ruminants.

Amipro ™ provides a high level of rumen undegradable, yet highly digestible protein that is perfect to support today’s higher milk and beef production.

Soybean meal is a high value vegetable protein source for all livestock. During digestion, however, a significant proportion of this vegetable protein is degraded in the rumen, far too early in the digestive system for the high yielding dairy cow and growing animals to exploit fully. Bypass protein products overcome this problem by protecting the protein while in the rumen, but allowing it to be fully digested within the small intestine. Consequently, better utilization of the essential amino acids occurs, resulting in improved milk production and growth.
Amipro ™ is a Rumen Bypass Protein Feed

  • High protein value of 76% UDP (% of cp at 6% outflow)
  • High degree of digestibility of 93%
  • EU trials show improved milk yield compared to regular soybean meal
  • Amipro ™ supplements the protein requirements of animals with good breeding genetics.

These properties aid the nutritionist in formulating rations that improve milk production, growth rate and/or reduce cost.

Suggested feeding rates are produced as a guide only and many other factors may have an overriding effect on performance. Rations should be carefully balanced for energy and protein, contain sufficient forage to maintain rumen function and be fortified with an appropriate vitamin and mineral supplement. Animals must have constant access to clean water.
