The need to guarantee ruminant absorption of a correct amount of nutrients in the intestine cannot disregard the degradation by the rumen microflora. For over 40 years our scientific research has set the goal to improve the rumen bypass so that a lower concentration of active ingredients in the diet leads to maximizing performance.


Timet® is a rumen by-pass source of methionine for ruminant species.

  • Improved animal performance and nitrogen efficiency
  • Enhanced reproductive performance
  • Increased sustainability
  • Scientifically proven mode of action
  • Ideal for aminoacid balancing: can be used with Relys®, as a source of lysine
  • Suitable for on-farm or feedmill application
  • Proven rumen protection
  • High intestinal bioavailability
  • Stability during pelleting and mechanical stress

As free aminoacids are strongly degraded at ruminal level, Timet® methionine is microencapsulated in a lipid matrix to be highly available at the intestinal level.

    Rumen-protected methionine: a boost for primiparous dairy cows performance

    Methionine is considered the most limiting essential amino acid for ruminants (Schwab & Broderick, 2017). This element has a pivotal role in their productive performance and nitrogen efficiency.

    Organic acid and plant botanical supplementation in heat-stressed Holstein calves

    Our findings in Holstein calves are early evidence that dietary microencapsulated OA/PB feeding is a means to partially restore feed intake and average daily gain post-weaning when challenged by heat exposure.

    Effects of heat stress and dietary organic acids and botanicals on hepatic one-carbon metabolism

    Heat stress develops with methyl donor deficiency in parallel with an impaired N metabolism. The supplementation of OA/PB improves the remethylation capacity in the liver. On-going transcriptomic analyses will provide a better understanding of the hepatic metabolism of dairy cows exposed to heat stress.
