NiaShure can help keep your cows cooler this summer – from the inside. Standard heat abatement techniques are important, but now you can help lower her internal body temperature, protecting milk production and reproductive performance during those hot summer months.
NiaShure goes to work quickly with no adaptation period. When you see a heat event coming, add NiaShure. Once the weather cools, you can simply pull it out. That’s precision feeding at its finest.
What is NiaShure
NiaShure is rumen protected niacin that helps lower internal body temperature; protecting milk production and reproductive performance during the hot summer months. Proven as an effective vasodilator in human nutrition, niacin directs blood to the skin and extremities, leading to greater heat transfer and increased sweating. More sweating allows for greater evaporative cooling, which lowers internal body temperature and reduces heat stress.
How does it work
NiaShure works in tandem with other heat abatement techniques to effectively cool your cows. NiaShure is absorbed in the small intestine and goes to work quickly to direct blood to the skin and extremities. This leads to greater heat transfer and increased sweating. More sweating allows for greater evaporative cooling, which lowers internal body temperature and reduces heat stress.
NiaShure Precision Release Niacin is approximately 85% rumen stable. Delivering eight times more bioavailable niacin to the small intestine than raw niacin, NiaShure overcomes rumen degradation for a more efficient delivery.

Nutrient Encapsulation Technology
Balchem’s encapsulation technology ensures maximum nutrient absorption, reduced risk and maximum productivity. The benefits start at the feed mill. Our encapsulation method helps our products resist temperature and storage degradation to ensure that maximum nutrient value is retained during the time between our factory and the cows. The encapsulation also offers superior rumen protection, making sure the nutrients get absorbed to help maximize animal productivity.
Without encapsulation, 94% of unprotected niacin is broken down in the rumen resulting in only 6% rumen bypass. With Shure encapsulation technology, nearly 90% of NiaShure™ niacin bypasses the rumen and is available to the cow.
