RumenSmart™ – Improve rumen performance, create a better environment for rumen microflora to thrive.
What is RumenSmart™?
Rumensmart is a novel feed additive to increase milk fat containing HMBTa.
- A concentrated source of HMTBa (84%)
- For use in dry applications
- (HMTBa is the hydroxy analogue of methionine)
Increased Milk Fat
RumenSmart™ stabilizes rumen microbial populations, orienting the biohydrogenation pathway to promote fat production.
Better Rumen Health
Promote beneficial rumen microflora populations.
Increased Rumen Efficiency
Decrease diet-induced milk fat depression.
Easy To Use
RumenSmart™ is a fine granular powder with superior flow characteristics.
Feed For Rumen Performance

Feed to Avoid Milk Fat Depression
Diet-induced milk fat depression (MFD) causes milk fat yields to drop without lowering milk volume or protein percent. All cows are likely to experience a degree of MFD. High-producing cows are the most severely impacted, Baldin et al. (2017). With milk fat depression, the milk fat percent can fall below 3%, reducing income from milk fat by 25%.
Dietary and environmental factors such as rations high in unsaturated fats and starch increase the risk of formation of the compounds that inhibit milk fat synthesis. RumenSmart™ mitigates accumulation of these compounds, notably the fatty acid, trans-10, cis-12 CLA.

Feed for Milk Fat Production
Cost of Milk Fat Depression
Minus 0.3% unit of milk fat @ 2.44£/kg
= minus 7.32£ per 1000l of milk**
** value of fat only. Does not take account of penalties/bonuses for quality
Baldin et al. (2017 JDS 101:1-10) showed clearly that cows fed diets conducive to developing moderate-to-high milk fat depression better withstood the challenge with HMTBa added to the diet.
Benefits of Feeding HMTBa:
- Maximizes milk fat production
- Mitigates diet-induced milk fat depression
- Lowers trans-10, cis-12 CLA levels
- Maintains de novo fatty acids synthesis
- Enhances rumen microbial protein production
RumenSmart™ is a fine granular powder with superior flow characteristics. The homogeneity of RumenSmart™ insures excellent distribution in dairy rations.
