Science Designed To Keep Beef Producers Competitive
"SafeGain provides the essential amino acid, lysine, that is lacking in both pasture and rationed diets for young growing cattle," explained Dr. Kip Karges, PhD. Nutritionist and Director of Technical Services with H.J. Baker Animal Health & Nutrition. "When cattle have a balanced amino acid profile, they get more nutrient value out of every mouth-full they eat. In simple terms, that means the animal becomes more efficient. Cattle grow more efficiently at safe, steady rates, while producing less waste and reducing its environmental impact. By using a new encapsulation technology we call Encapsulaids, SafeGain's lysine can pass through the cow's rumen to the small intestine, where it is efficiently absorbed into the blood stream. This is significant, particularly for the stocker cattle industry."
With pressure from foreign imports and low market prices, American cattle producers continue to look for new methods of improving beef production and profitability. SafeGain represents part of the solution.
