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 30 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.


MecoVit® is a special mix of rumen-protected microencapsulated methionine, choline, betaine and B vitamins focused on the needs of the transition dairy cows.


MecoVit® combines different nutrients playing an important and synergistic role in the metabolism of the transition cow, reducing liver steatosis, ketosis and the incidence of post-partum diseases.

MecoVit® improves the reproductive and productive efficiency and performance of the transition cow. The nutrients of MecoVit® are involved in important biochemical pathways improving the energy metabolism of the dairy cow. These nutrients are micro-encapsulated in a lipid matrix in order to by-pass the rumen and be highly available at the intestinal level.


MecoVit® ensures better results if applied during the dry period and the first months of lactation.

    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.

    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.

    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.
