Description of Ammonium Propionate

Ammonium propionate is a chemical compound that contains ammonium ions (NH4+) and propionate ions (C3H5O2-). It is used as a source of energy and as a feed additive in animal nutrition.

Application of Ammonium Propionate

  • Provides a source of ammonia, which is essential for microbial protein synthesis in the rumen of ruminants, aiding in better growth and milk production.
  • Serves as an energy source for the rumen microbes, which in turn produce volatile fatty acids (VFAs) that are a primary energy source for ruminants.
  • Helps in maintaining the overall health of the gastrointestinal tract in animals.
  • Leads to increased milk production, as it supports both energy provision and protein synthesis.
  • Prevention of Fodder Spoilage: As a preservative, it helps in preventing the spoilage of silage and other animal feeds by inhibiting the growth of undesirable bacteria and molds.
  • Beneficial for high-producing animals, such as dairy cows in early lactation, by providing additional energy and supporting protein synthesis.
