2 new authorisations for live yeast product

30-03-2007 | |

BIOSAF Sc 47, the Lesaffre Feed Additives’ live yeast, received two new permanent authorisations for use in horses, dairy goats and ewes.

The yeast is already permanently authorised in six
different animal species: rabbits, sows, piglets, beef cattle, dairy cows, and
fattening lambs.

Recommended dosages
For dairy goats
and ewes, the yeast is recommended at the following dose rate: 7.108 – 7.5.109
CFU/kg of complete feedingstuff. By decreasing risks of acidosis, the live yeast
improves significantly milk production up to 20%, while milk quality and ability
to make cheese are maintained. For horses, the yeast is recommended at the dose
rate of 8.108 – 7.109 CFU/kg of complete feedingstuff. The product reduces
horses digestive disorders (caecal acidosis), increases their ability to digest
fibres, hence improves their welfare.
