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.
Microtinic®C is a rumen-protected microencapsulated form of Vitamin C for high yielding dairy cows and beef cattle.
Vitamin C in Microtinic®C is microencapsulated in a lipid matrix in order to by-pass the rumen and be highly available at the intestinal level.
Once in the intestine, the lipases start to digest the lipid matrix, releasing vitamin C and making it available for absorption.
Vetagro’s technology assures that vitamin C is absorbed in the intestine due to the tailored particle size.
The protection of Microtinic®C is adapted to the digestive transit time of ruminants.

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.
