Alltech UK


Alltech’s non-protein nitrogen source Optigen offers significant rationing flexibility for dairy cows through its ability to cost effectively replace conventional bulky protein sources, claims the company.

As a highly concentrated slow release nitrogen source, 100g of Optigen provides the equivalent rumen degradable protein of around 1kg of soyabean or rapeseed meal. This creates space in the rumen for alternative feeds, such as energy or fibre sources, to improve nutrient supply for specific requirements.

Partial replacement of conventional protein sources with Optigen has been shown to increase performance and dairy cows and/or reduce overall ration costs. Optigen can be included in feed blends or added direct to farm-mixed rations.


NuPro®, Alltech’s functional protein source consists of all of the nutrients needed to get an animal off to the best start possible. With the correct nutrition and proper inclusion of a functional protein your piglets will grow faster, be healthier and go to market faster in the end…making you a better profit, quicker.

Trials have shown that by including NuPro in young pig and poultry diets, animals will show increased average daily gain, increased feed conversion and higher weights when ready for market.

NuPro…nutrition keeping pace with genetics.

Borregaard LignoTech

Borregaard LignoTech is a leader in bypass protein technology, supplying the European and North American markets for over 30 years. Our products SoyPass® and RaPass® feature high levels of undegradable, yet highly digestible protein that are perfect for today’s ration balancing programs.

Soybean meal and rapeseed meal are known to be high value protein sources for animal feeds. During digestion, however, some of the vegetable protein is broken down in the rumen of the cow, far too early in the digestive system for the high yielding cow to fully use it.

Bypass products overcome this problem by protecting the protein while in the rumen, but allowing it to be fully digested within the small intestine. Consequently, better utilization of the essential amino acids occurs resulting in improved milk production.

SoyPass® and RaPass® is manufactured and sold by our approved licensees. All of our bypass proteins are produced according to our strict quality requirements, and are among the most consistent bypass proteins on the market.

Trident high-protein distillers’ feeds (BIOETHANOL WHEAT DISTILLERS’ FEED, SCOTTISH BARLEY DISTILLERS’ FEED, PANNONIA GOLD MAIZE DISTILLERS’ FEED) are very cost effective sources of protein and energy that can successfully replace combinations of cereals, rapemeal and soyabean meal in dairy, beef and youngstock feeds .

All contain high levels of rumen-friendly digestible fibre energy, significant amounts of digestible undegraded protein (DUP), plus residual yeast fragments known to benefit rumen function.

BIOETHANOL WHEAT DISTILLERS’ FEED can directly replace (on a protein and energy basis) a mix of around 55% wheat, 45% hi-pro soyabean meal. Its low copper content is ideal for sheep feeds.

The high pellet quality of SCOTTISH BARLEY DISTILLERS’ FEED is ideal for parlour blends in Scotland and northern England, whilst PANNONIA GOLD is a highly digestible golden maize distillers’ feed.

Trident’s rumen-bypass protein supplements (SOYPASS, PROTOTEC) are both highly cost-effective sources of DUP.

The heat- and xylose-treated hi-pro soyabean meal SOYPASS is a palatable, free-flowing supplement with double the DUP of soyabean meal. In correctly balanced diets, it is capable of improving milk yield, beef growth rates and feed conversion efficiency.

PROTOTEC heat-treated rapemeal contains 14.5% DUP, and is usually a more cost-effective DUP source than hi-pro soyabean meal.
