ANEVIS rumen-protected niacin helps ensure that your investment in niacin gets where it is supposed to go—and does what it is supposed to do for your dairy cows.
Using a complex lipid matrix, ANEVIS protects the niacin from rumen microbial organisms that typically degrade raw niacin. Research indicates that 66.7% of the niacin found in ANEVIS is delivered to the small intestine—and ANEVIS provides nearly 8 times the amount of niacin delivered to the bloodstream compared to raw niacin.
ANEVIS (ah-NEE-vis) is inspired by the Latin word nevis, meaning “no stress”—and reducing stress is the primary benefit of adding niacin to the rations of high-producing dairy cows. Unfortunately, as much as 95% of raw niacin may be broken down by rumen microflora before it ever reaches the small intestine, where it’s actually absorbed. As a result, dairy farmers have been forced to choose between feeding large amounts of raw niacin, hoping enough will make it through, or not adding any niacin at all to the rations of stressed cattle—which is certainly costing producers money. That difficult and expensive choice has been eliminated with ANEVIS rumen-protected niacin from QualiTech.
