QualiTech® Introduces BOVI-LYSINE
QualiTech, Inc. created BOVI-LYSINE™ rumen-protected lysine as an alternative to feeding blood meal or other lysine sources. Validated at the University of New Hampshire by Charles G. Schwab, Ph.D., BOVI-LYSINE is 47% rumen-protected lysine and delivers 12.69 grams of intestinally available lysine per 100 grams of product fed. The QualiTech patent-pending, rumen-protection technology protects the lysine from degradation in the rumen, while helping deliver the product to the cow’s small intestine where it can be used. The product’s specific gravity allows it to drop to the bottom of the rumen and flow through to the intestine quickly. Visit www.qualitechco.com.
