ST.CHARLES, Mo. — Novus International is debuting a new program aimed at increasing milk yield for liquid milk and components at the World Dairy Expo, Oct. 4-6 in Wisconsin.
The focus of the Scale Up™ dairy program is to turn production challenges into herd profitability by providing innovative feeding strategies that optimize milk yield and components.
“Whether the production goal is to increase component pounds, milk yield, or both, the Scale Up™ program achieves those goals throughout the lactation,” says Cecilia Lopez, Novus North American Ruminant Marketing Manager. “By gaining a better understanding of the role that specific nutrients, such as the methionine source HMTBa, play in rumen fermentation and animal metabolism, we can help our customers increase milk and component production.”
Along with increasing beneficial microbiota in the rumen and optimizing rumen function, the program helps optimize feed intake and meet the metabolic needs of lactating cows.
“The successful transition from pregnancy to lactation is critical to the health and productivity of dairy cows,” says Dr. Will Seymour, Novus Ruminant Maintenance Manager. “The Scale Up™ program helps dairy farmers develop a successful transition program that allows cows to start strong, perform at high levels and maintain consistent milk production throughout lactation.”
The World Dairy Expo will be the international launch of the Scale Up™ program for dairy products. Participants can learn more about the program by visiting the Novus booth #1403-1404 during the Expo, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. October 4-6 and from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. October 7 at Alliant Energy. Center in Madison, Wisconsin.

The Scale Up™ program was created by a global animal nutrition and health company to provide science-based nutrition solutions and best industry practices to optimize production, helping each animal realize its genetic potential. Novus launched the pig program earlier this year during the World Pork Expo. The company plans to launch Scale Up™ for poultry in 2023.
