Nutritionists know methionine is the first limiting amino acid for proper growth, reproduction and performance in poultry. The creation of commercially available methionine supplements played a key role in the development of the modern poultry industry.
Novus offers both liquid and dry forms of methionine supplementation. ALIMET® feed supplement, our liquid solution, is an 88% active source of methionine. In addition to proven performance, ALIMET delivers an organic acid effect, reduces nitrogen excretion and supports performance during heat stress.
MHA® feed supplement is a proven 84% effective source of methionine activity. Because of its dry granular form, MHA is the leading source HMTBa inclusion in premixes and farm feed mills. MHA delivers organic calcium, reduces nitrogen excretion and supports performance during heat stress.
Choosing the right feed formulation for poultry can pose a dilemma for nutritionists, and careful scientific evaluation of each ingredient is needed. For the poultry producer, this means relying on dose-response trials in target species, not just rely on a single ‘indicator’ poultry species, such as broilers. Layers, turkeys, ducks and growth phases will have effect on the proper dosage in the diet.
Over three decades of research show Novus Methionine Solutions deliver measureable improvements in performance over DL-methionine at normal industry supplementation levels. Novus Methionine Solutions deliver 100% methionine activity and, because they are chemically different from DL-methionine products, can deliver benefits DL-methionine products can’t.
The poultry industry today is facing more challenges than ever before. In addition to providing protein to a growing world population, industry leaders must also focus on managing food safety, animal welfare and environmental concerns. That’s why Novus is working to advance the industry with the nutritional solutions needed to increase performance in an efficient and sustainable way.
