Maximize Milk Protein with New Precision Release Methionine

New Hampton, New York (September 14, 2015) – Balchem Corporation (NASDAQ: BCPC), the leader in precision release nutrient technologies, announces the launch of their next generation rumen protected methionine, AminoShure®-M Precision Release Methionine. Utilizing an all–natural coating, new AminoShure-M is engineered to meter its payload gradually into the small intestine to provide sustained levels of methionine for milk protein-producing cells.

“Cows synthesize milk protein around the clock,” notes Dr. Clay Zimmerman, technical services manager. “AminoShure-M continually meters methionine to the ribosomes, maximizing milk protein production and dairy farmer profitability.”

As one of the first limiting amino acids, supplemental methionine is required by dairy cows to build and maintain virtually every tissue in the body, and most importantly, build milk protein.

“AminoShure-M Precision Release Methionine is the most economical source of rumen protected methionine on the market, when comparing the cost per unit of metabolizable methionine. It provides a trusted source of the amino acids cows need for peak performance,” states Scott Sorrell, director of global marketing. “With more than 90% of today’s dairymen receiving milk check premiums for components, milk protein is an important part of the dairy’s profitability picture.”
