Calves feeding: higher daily intake with AMINOTRACE-BIS-LYSINATE

main activities

AMINOTRACE-COPPER-BIS-LYSINATE and AMINOTRACE-ZINC-BIS-LYSINATE combine the amino acid lysine with the trace elements copper and zinc. The high biological availability enables optimized rearing performance with reduced excretion of heavy metals of calves. New trials at Gut Hülsenberg confirm the effect of AMINOTRACE-BIS-LYSINATE in calf rearing.


During an 8-week-trinking-trial, calves are divided into two groups.

Group 1: Milk replacer with cooper and zinc in inorganic form as Cooper-Sulphate and zinc oxide and completed with the essential amino acid lysine.

Group 2: Milk replacer with AMINOTRACE-BIS-Lysinate, the effective combination of trace elements and lysine. The milk-replacer potions were made restrictively in all groups with 7.0 l / animal / day


Increased daily weight gain


With the same amount of potions a clear difference between the daily increases in both groups is shown.  The daily weight gain of group 1 was about 913 g/ day. Group 2 with AMINOTRACE-BIS-LYSINATES achieves in comparison to group 1 an increase about 4 % to 952 g/day (see figure 1).


Improved energy utilisation


AMINOTRACE-BIS-LYSINATE convinces also with regard to feed conversion. The calves of group 2 require 20 MJ ME per kg weight gain. Calves of group 1had to take 21,5 MJ ME per kg weight gain, in spite of equal amino acid supply, to achieve same result as group 2. The use of AMINOTRACE-BIS-LYSINATE improves the energy utilisation during the drinking period by 7,5 % (see figure 2).
