LEVUCELL® SC

LEVUCELL® SC is a live yeast used as a probiotic in ruminant and equine feeds. The train Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-1077 was selected from thousands of yeast strains for its capacity to optimize rumen function in ruminants and hindgut function in horses.

Its efficacy has been validated through studies at leading research centers and is documented in more than 100 international independent scientific publications.


Description

LEVUCELL® SC helps optimize rumen function which maximizes feed efficiency.

LEVUCELL® SC is internationally approved:

  • European Union approved (E1711/4b1711/4a1711) for use in bovines destined for meat and milk production, dairy goats, ewes, lambs
  • United States: Saccharomyces cerevisiae is considered generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and complies with the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) requirements for an active dry yeast

  • Benefits

    LEVUCELL® SC optimizes rumen digestion and function which leads to an improvement in income over feed cost.

    During transition, LEVUCELL® SC can help improve milk yield and maintain weight.

    The proven efficiency of Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-1077:

    • Improves fiber digestibility and helps optimize rumen pH*
    • Improves feed efficiency: more milk is produced per kg of feed intake (e.g. for dairy: +50g* to 120g of milk for every kg of dry matter intake)

      The proven efficiency of Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-1077:

      • Improves fiber digestibility and helps optimize rumen pH*
      • Improves feed efficiency: more weight gain per kg of feed intake (e.g. for beef, 4 to 6%* more gain per kg of feed consumed)

    Application

    LEVUCELL® SC feed supplementation should be used in ruminants (dairy cattle, beef cattle, rearing calf, goat, lamb, ewe and sheep) at the recommended feeding rate.

    There are different formulations to fit various feeding and management practices:

    • LEVUCELL® SC 20: Concentrated formulation adapted for non-pelleted or mash feed type applications
    • LEVUCELL® SC 10 TITAN: Micro-encapsulated formulation adapted for premixtures and pelleted feed
