Vertellus Introduces NiaPro(TM) Encapsulated Niacin for Dairy Cows
Vertellus is excited to announce its newest product NiaPro(TM) Encapsulated Niacin, an encapsulated feed-additive form of niacin.
INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — NiaPro(TM)( )Encapsulated Niacin is formulated to control early digestion in the rumen and deliver an effective dose of niacin to the intestine, producing optimal benefits. The coating is durable but digestible and breaks down fully in the intestine. Niacin has been shown to benefit cows in lactation, especially those in the transition period and in heat stress situations. Research demonstrates that supplemental niacin reduces metabolic problems in dairy herds like ketosis and can result in increased milk production and healthier cows.
“Vertellus has produced niacin for animal nutrition for more than 30 years,” says Bernie Szalkowski, Vertellus Nutrition Business Director. “We’ve learned that to gain maximum dairy benefit, niacin must not be over-digested in the rumen or over-protected and pass through the digestive system. Vertellus’ NiaPro(TM)( )Encapsulated Niacin is specifically formulated, coated, and specially sized to control early digestion and then consistently deliver niacin benefits through its complete digestion in the intestine.”
NiaPro(TM)( )Encapsulated Niacin incorporates proprietary technology to optimally benefit dairy herds. Customers can be assured that Vertellus is a reliable, secure supplier of Vitamin B3 products with a global manufacturing base. In business for more than 150 years, Vertellus has a reputation for quality products and customer responsiveness.
