BOKU symposium 2021

The 19th BOKU symposium Animal Nutrition 2021 had the general topic “Animal Nutrition between animal welfare and environment protection”. The symposium was held for the first time as a digital web conference. We were again represented with a scientific contribution.

The title of our poster was: “Influence of a combination of rumenstable lysine and rumenstable methionine on dairy cows in practice”.

The results of the study in brief:

  • The addition of rumenstable methionine and rumenstable lysine led to a significant increase in milk performance of 2.3 kg while milk fat synthesis was increased by 80 g/day; milk protein synthesis was tendentially increased.
  • The effects of additional rumenstable amino acids (methionine+lysine) in this trial confirm the importance of amino acid supply in dairy cow rations with increased proportions of by-products.
