Kemin launches ruminant amino acid reference manual

New book uncovers a new approach to increasing profitability in the dairy industry

Kemin Industries, a global nutritional ingredients company with expertise in ruminant nutrition, has launched the “Kemin Reference Manual for Ruminant Amino Acid Formulation” as part of its ongoing Kemin Lifelong Learning program.

Written by experienced professionals and industry experts for nutritionists and technicians in the dairy market, the book focuses on how to formulate in different contexts and amino acid nutrition systems. Beyond formulation, the book inspires a new way to think about increasing revenue and profitability in dairy farming.

“As experts in a world of highly competitive dairy farming, we believe it is our responsibility to provide customers with a thorough understanding of how protein metabolism can benefit their operation,” said Javier Mateos, business manager ruminants for Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health, EMEA. “Through the last 10 years of the Kemin Lifelong Learning program, we’ve shared cutting-edge science, strategies, approaches and useful tools for customers to deepen their understanding of amino acid implementation.”

Amino acid nutrition has important functions in metabolism, with a significant influence on an animal’s health, fertility, and oxidative and inflammatory status. It can help dairy animals overcome challenges and stresses throughout the complete lactation period, including the transition phase.

“The new book will be a valuable tool because it not only explains how to formulate in different nutrition systems, it also helps customers understand protein metabolism and tie key concepts back to gaining precision in diets,” said Dr. Diego Martínez, product manager amino acids for Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health, EMEA.
