Directions for Use:
MaxiProTM should be fed between 0.2 to 0.5 lbs. to cattle in their final rations.
• MaxiProTM feeding rate should not exceed 0.3 g urea/kg body weight per day.
• MaxiProTM should not be used in association with other feeds supplying urea and/or other
non-protein nitrogen sources.
• Cattle should not be given free access to rations containing urea.
• Non-protein nitrogen content should not exceed 20% of the crude protein in the total diet.
• Non-protein nitrogen content should not extend more than 1% of concentrate ration.
• Nutritionist recommendations of feeding non-protein nitrogen sources should be followed.
Allow sufficient time for cattle to adapt to any ration containing non-protein nitrogen


Many nutrients are already degraded before reaching
the small intestine. To meet the cow nutrients
requirements and to maximize its production potential,
some nutrients deficiencies should be corrected. One
of the most efficient way of correcting these
deficiencies is through the addition of small amounts
of these nutrients in a rumen-protected form.
MaxiProTM special coating technique is based on
advanced technology involving synchronized spray
cooling of a composite matrix of primarily selected
long chain fatty acids. This technique assures that the
maximum amount of protected nutrients is able to
by-pass rumen fermentation and remains available at
the small intestine. The coating protects nutrients
from oxidation, pH, light and makes the product free
flowing and non-hygroscopic.

Rumination has been well recognized as an essential fermentation that is capable of preparing end-products, particularly volatile fatty acids and microbial proteins as major energy and protein source for the ruminant host. Hence the more efficient this fermentation process takes place, the more balanced the fermentation end-products are being synthesized. An optimal ration between rumen degradation and rumen by-pass ingredients is key to obtain efficient production and to prevent metabolic disorders. A large portion of the protein in dairy diets comes from microbial protein produced by microbes in the rumen. Microbial protein can supply more than 55% of the required protein for a cow. The microbes need sources of Nitrogen and Carbohydrates (energy) available at the same time to produce protein. A few hours after a meal there is a rise in rumen ammonia level, followed by a decrease of rumen ammonia level.

With high proteins prices feed urea is a good source of
nitrogen for rumen microbial protein synthesis. To
improve the utilization of nitrogen from feed urea, the
conversion of urea to ammonia needs to be slowed
MaxiProTM is a partially coated form of urea produced
with the encapsulation technology to create a slow
release Nitrogen source. MaxiProTM gives a continuous
supply of nitrogen to the rumen.
Benefits of MaxiProTM:
• More production of microbial protein due continuous
supply of nitrogen
• Lower MUN concentration and lower dietary crude
• Replacing a part protein rich ingredients by
non-protein dense ingredients
• More efficient utilization of dietary nitrogen
• Improved fiber utilization Feeding instructions
