Using Multiple Ingredients for the Right Level of Amino Acids

For a dairy ration to be balanced correctly, all amino acid needs must be met. The ability of a cow to grow or to produce milk is determined by the most limiting amino acid. Thus, amino acids that are supplied over the limit are wasted. Supplying the correct amounts, without too many excesses, requires some finesse.

Comparing Amino Acid Profiles of Protein Sources

The value of a protein for ruminants depends on three factors:

  1. The RUP content: how much of the protein is still present after it gets past the rumen
  2. The digestibility of the RUP fraction — if it cannot be digested, then it has no value
  3. The amino acid profile of the ingredient

Evaluating the Amino Acid Profiles of Ration Ingredients

After determining that amino acid balancing is something you want to achieve for your dairy ration, the next step is determining the ration ingredients necessary to achieve that amino acid balance.

What Does Animo Acid Balance Look Like?

We know balancing for amino acids – ensuring the amount of amino acids supplied meets the needs of the dairy cow – can have beneficial effects for dairy cows and the overall dairy operation. The question is, How do we achieve that balance?
