Amino Acids Brochure

With the fluctuating cost of soybean meal and synthetic lysine, many producers are faced with looking for cost effective alternatives for this limiting amino acid in livestock diets. This brochure provides an easily accessible comparison list for lysine and methionine levels found in various Minnesota agricultural products and co-products that potentially could be used as a feed supplement. Dry matter results are listed in the tables because this is one of the factors that regulate the total feed intake. The feedstocks are separated into three categories Industrial Food Processing Waste, Non-Food Industrial Waste, and Crop Residues. For each feedstock, values are listed for crude protein, lysine, methionine, crude fiber, acid detergent fiber, and neutral detergent fiber.
