How Does by-pass Protein Work?
There are two kinds of protein based on digestion: By-Pass Protein and Digestible Protein. Digestible Protein gets broken down (degraded) by the microbial "bugs" in the first stomach (rumen) of deer whereas By-Pass protein is protected by compounds that keep the microbial bugs from breaking it down (undegraded). The amino acids inside of the By-Pass protein pass through in a pure form which makes them perfect to use by antler growing cells to rapidly develop. It's simple - the more By-Pass protein content formulated into the feed, the more growth you will get. By-pass sources also happen to be very expensive and why many feeds are formulated with low By-pass levels. Not Antler Boost - our Spring/Summer 21% has 50% more than common deer feeds.
The Three Distinct Differences You Will Find In Antler Boost:
1) Higher by-pass protein levels - this is the protein that effectively influences antler growth. By-pass protein is also the most expensive form of protein and is often the least utilized for that reason. We use protein sources higher in by-pass protein during antler development - lots of times twice the amount of our competitors.
2) Delivering our promise on critical fat levels which we believe is a key to Antler Boost - providing high energy that deer need to cope with stress and keeping consumption levels high which means more by-pass protein absorption and consumption - which grows bigger bucks!
3) We prefer to not use ground up corn. Corn is a filler ingredient that does not provide enough nutrients and protein amino acids. Antler Boost recommends supplementing with 10-20% of whole corn that is purchased much cheaper from your local farmers to meet sugar-starch requirements. Antler Boost contains more protein amino acid sources in the place of ground corn that you find in other feeds – don’t waste money on ground in pellets! Other deer feeds utilize corn as an attractant but the fat levels in ANTLER BOOST Deer Feed provide the BEST form of attraction.
