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
