Fibre Digestibility In Dairy Cows

05 May 2010

CANADA - To help dairy farmers improve feed efficiency Lallemand Animal Nutrition has launched a new mini website www.levucellsc-fibre.info, which focuses on fibre digestibility to help dairy farmers, nutritionists, veterinarians and distributors understand ways of improving feed and forage utilisation.

This new tool summarises the latest scientific results obtained with the rumen specific live yeast, Levucell®SC (Saccharomyces cerevisiae I-1077) and in particular its effect on improving fibre digestibility. Fibre can limit the ‘milk potential’ of the diet, however the live yeast allows producers to increase the energy available to the animal.
