NitroShure™ Precision Release Nitrogen uses Balchem’s proprietary encapsulation technology to provide a more consistent nitrogen supply to rumen microbes, allowing for greater flexibility in feeding programs. It’s a valuable tool for helping producers and nutritionists to reduce ration costs while increasing the amount of high quality protein available to the cow.

Key Advantages of NitroShure

Create Ration Space

Replace less dense sources of protein with NitroShure™ to create approximately 1.5 pound of dry matter space in the diet. The additional space can be used to increase dietary levels of forage, non-fiber carbohydrate or other key ration ingredients to improve milk and milk component production.

Lower Ration Costs

Replace more expensive protein sources with NitroShure™ to reduce purchased feed costs.

Improve Digestible Protein Quality

Replace low quality proteins with NitroShure™.  Synchronizing nitrogen release with available carbohydrates in the rumen leads to improvements in high quality, microbial protein production.
