High-yielding cows have special needs with regard to feeding. The nutrient supply according to individual requirements during the first weeks of lactation is very important in terms of nutritional physiology and of economy. During this period the feed intake often falls below the actual demand owing to milk production. In this case an insufficient supply of energy and amino acids leads to performance deficiencies often accompanied by liver damage and reproductive disorders.

Feeding dairy cows according to their dietary needs.

Loprotin is the first rumen-protected zinc chelate of methionine (1:2) which combines the positive effects of methionine and zinc on metabolism and performance for ruminants.

Loprotin raises the intestinal methionine supply of the dairy cow and thereby increases the milk yield and quantity of milk protein. 

Loprotin improves fertility, fitness and claw quality parameters due to the supply of organic zinc.
