Pure, 100% natural yeast-based solution improves rumen and intestinal health in cattle
The gastrointestinal tract of cattle is essential for the absorption of nutrients and protection against pathogens. Its optimization and preservation are fundamental to improving performance and avoiding health problems that compromise productivity. “Finding a solution that improves the functioning of the rumen and intestinal tract, providing improved performance and the animal’s immune status at the same time, is proving to be a major challenge,” explains Rodrigo Gardinal, ICC’s Global Product Manager for Ruminants.
The company, which is a leader in natural and sustainable solutions for animal nutrition, health, welfare, and performance, has RumenYeast®, a unique solution for dairy and beef cattle that not only protects animals against the main health challenges, but also improves the digestibility of the diet and the integrity of the gastrointestinal tract. The product is a source of soluble metabolites and functional immunonutrients (MOS and β-glucans 1,3 and 1,6).
“With ICC pioneering technology developed over more than 30 years, this concentrated, pure solution delivers 20 billion yeasts per gram of product, soluble culture medium, preserved fermentation metabolites, and the exposed internal contents and yeast wall. All the components are stabilized by Four Steps RumenYeast® (4SRY) technology, a unique solution that improves and enhances rumen and intestinal modulation and the animal’s immune status,” Gardinal points out. “The soluble metabolites of fermentation help to modulate and support the rumen flora, accelerating the digestion of cellulose and hemicellulose, stabilizing the pH of the rumen under conditions of feeding or caloric stress and increasing the production of volatile fatty acids, while the components of the yeast wall prevent the growth of pathogenic bacteria in the GIT and improve local and systemic immune status.”
According to the expert, RumenYeast® is the ideal solution for animals, improving the digestibility of the diet, the integrity of the gastrointestinal tract, and the immune response, guaranteeing animal health and welfare, as well as safety, efficiency, and productivity, “especially in intensive production systems, during the period of adaptation to grain-rich diets, health challenges and heat stress”. Providing RumenYeast® to animals through the diet reduces and helps prevent the growth of pathogens in the intestinal tract, Escherichia coli, for example, reducing their fecal excretion, as well as promoting greater safety for the food chain.
Food safety is rated as one of the most important and valued attributes by consumers of food of animal origin. This is why natural and sustainable yeast-based solutions for animal production are not only economically viable, but also contribute to high productivity and provide well-being for dairy cows and beef cattle. “The use of yeast as a nutritional additive, based on innovative production and stabilization technology, helps the rumen microbiota, reduces contamination by pathogens, and strengthens the immune system, contributing to general health and the animal’s response to challenges,” concludes Rodrigo Gardinal, ICC’s Global Product Manager for Ruminants.
