Novus International - MHA

As feed ingredient prices exhibit greater volatility and resources become scarcer, formulating to meet amino acids (AA) requirements with a methionine source from Novus helps to optimize rations and get the most out of feed ingredients.

MHA® has 84% minimum methionine activity and has been used since 1956 in commercial feed applications. It is equally effective for poultry and livestock diets. MHA feed supplement is proven to be an effective source of methionine activity without the appetite suppression experienced when feeding DL-methionine. Because of its dry granular powder form, MHA is the leading source of HMTBa inclusions in premixes and farm feed mills. MHA delivers organic calcium, reduces nitrogen excretion and provides better performance during heat stress.

All methionine sources are not created equal. The forms and types of amino acids available commercially vary not only in their methionine density, but also in uptake and response in the target animal. Bioavailability has a major bearing on the overall nutritional value of the amino acid product used.

Feeding MHA feed supplement in livestock and poultry rations as a methionine source has been shown to:

  • Optimize Growth Rates
  • Reduce Condemnation Rates
  • Optimize Meat Yield
