The Balchem Corporation has announced its decision to suspend the manufacturing and marketing of AminoShure-L (52% lysine), a highly concentrated, encapsulated source of lysine for dairy cow rations. This voluntary move is in keeping with the company's core commitment to superior product performance.

Recent research indicates that the lysine bioavailability of AminoShure-L is lower than originally projected, and the company has determined that it does not meet internal standards. Even though dairy nutritionists and producers have reported positive results when using AminoShure-L, Balchem is taking this action to aggressively pursue product improvements. Balchem intends to reintroduce AminoShure-L once it meets the company's performance standard.

"We are passionate about providing products that bring value to dairy nutritionists and the producers they serve," says Dana Putnam, vice president and general manager of Balchem Animal Nutrition and Health.

"The focus of our entire organization is on identifying and implementing the product improvements, fully supported by sound science. This will allow us to bring AminoShure-L back to the market. We are currently working with customers to review ways to reduce the effects of this product suspension."
