Benefits for Nutritionists

AminoMax products deliver highly consistent amino acid profiles, making them a valuable tool for dairy nutritionists. The reliability of the formula means that results are easy to predict and control using precise management techniques.

Specifically, AminoMax products provide consistently high levels of bioavailable lysine, methionine and other essential amino acids. Nutritionists can custom-blend multiple bypass plant proteins to meet individual feeding goals using AminoMax Pro or AminoMax Green.

Scientifically backed

In a Miner Institute trial released in 2013, cows that received a diet including AminoMax produced more milk, milk protein and milk fat than when they were fed the components individually. The cows also gained more weight, suggesting a high overall feed efficiency.

Cornell University researchers have found that AminoMax has an impressive RUP value of 72%—far higher than either pretreated soybean meal at 49% or pretreated canola meal at 43%.

Canola meal and AminoMax products

As you know, canola meal has a unique amino acid profile that includes histidine, methionine, cysteine and threonine to very efficiently optimize milk production. University researchers have shown at a meeting of the American Dairy Science Association that Holsteins fed an increasing forage-to-concentrate ratio—with canola meal as the main protein source—decreased DMI without altering milk yield. The Canola Council of Canada has also released a summary of 24 research trials showing that CM in dairy diets increased milk production by 2.2 pounds (one liter) each day.

A product like AminoMax—which includes both canola meal and soybean meal that have been processed to obtain the highest bioavailability of key amino acids—is clearly a valuable tool for improving feed efficiency, reducing nitrogen, optimizing milk production and increasing milk components.

Benefits for Producers

The challenge: Increase production, while lowering nitrogen emissions, meeting ever-changing environmental regulations and remaining profitable in the face of fluctuating milk prices and rising operating costs.

The solution: AminoMax products, plant-based bypass protein sources that blend canola meal and soybean meal to form an amino acid profile specifically for dairy cows.

How it works: There is no one-size-fits-all solution because every dairy has its own unique struggles and goals. That’s why AminoMax products give you the flexibility to create customized rations that fit your operation’s individual feeding goals, such as increasing milk components and overall milk quality.

Our patented process reduces the amount of crude protein in the diet to increase the energy status of the cow and improve protein efficiency. Feeding more on-farm forage creates rapidly digested starch, which in turn optimizes milk production and decreases expenses.

The product’s high feed efficiency helps improve herd economics on your operation and reduces farm odors by lowering nitrogen excretions—ultimately leading to a healthier living environment.

AminoMax is also used to feed both fermentable forage and carbohydrates to enhance rumen health and offset short and/or poor-quality forage.

Benefits for Feed Mills

AminoMax bypass plant proteins are blended to provide an amino acid profile tailored for dairy cows, so you can tightly control the protein portion of the mix and provide real value for producers who are looking to reduce nitrogen excretion, increase milk components and maximize overall milk yield.

You can custom-blend amino acid-rich formulations to meet the specific needs of your most demanding dairy producers and nutritionists.

AminoMax performance-blended plant proteins ensure maximum bypass and bioavailability. The product protects against rumen degradation by physically blocking enzyme binding sites on protein molecules.

Low pH in the abomasum then allows protein molecules to “unwind” and leave binding sites available to enzymes, resulting in full digestion of essential amino acids after the product has bypassed the rumen.

AminoMax products can also be used to feed fermentable forage and carbohydrates—enhancing rumen health, improving milk components and offsetting short or poor quality forage.
