Evonik announces new Canadian distribution agreement for dairy feed additive

04 April 2019

Evonik and Halchemix Canada are pleased to announce the launch of a strategic partnership for the promotion of Evonik’s rumenprotected methionine product Mepron® in the Canadian market.

The agreement will see Halchemix become the exclusive distributor of Mepron® in Canada. The product is a superior methionine source that helps to boost milk production and reduce feed costs for the dairy industry.

Ken O'Halloran, Evonik’s Regional Vice President, North America, said: “Halchemix is well established in the Canadian market as a provider of well-researched feed additives, making them an ideal partner. Their products include amino acids, phytase, enzymes, and a dairy product line that includes rumen protected lysine and DCAD products.”

The use of Mepron® makes it easy to balance the ration for amino acids. This results in better herd health thanks to improved liver function, lower inflammation and less oxidative stress; higher dry matter intake followed by higher energy-corrected milk (ECM) yield; higher profitability (Income Over Feed Costs); lower nitrogen emissions and higher weaning weights of calves.
