    Directions of useParticularly for use in monogastrics. Dl-Methionine Feed Grade ensures the adequate supply of sulphur amino acids, especially of the essential methionine. Because of methionine being first-limiting in typical poultry diets its use has been well established for many years. Aditionally diets for piglets and growing pigs can show a considerable deficiency in methionine, especially when formulated to achieve low nitrogen excretion for ecological reasons. Such a deficiency can be conveniently compensated for by using DL-Methionine Feed Grade
