What Is Soy Best "L"?
Now nutritionists and dairy producers can choose between two Soy Best formulations: Original Soy Best with fresh soy gums and now Soy Best "L".
Soy Best "L" is Soy Best that has been fortified with rumen-protected lysine. It is used as an economical way to meet the lysine requirement of lactating dairy cows.
- Soy Best "L" is manufactured by inserting Kemin USA Lysine® rumen protected lysine into fresh soy gums and applying the gums onto Soy Best according to a patented process. USA Lysine® is manufactured by Kemin Industries, Inc.
- Lysine is a limiting amino acid for milk production in high-producing dairy cows. With its elevated lysine content, Soy Best "L" can be used to balance rations for high milk production at a lower cost compared to other feed ingredients.
- In some rations, a combination of Soy Best and Soy Best "L" can be the most economical way to meet the cow's requirements for metabolizable protein and metabolizable lysine.
