Effect of Live Yeast Supplementation in Gestating and Lactating Primiparous Sows: the study performed with Biosprint

2022-09-23T16:43:06+00:00September 23rd, 2022|

Effect of Live Yeast Supplementation in Gestating and Lactating Primiparous Sows: the study performed with Biosprint Primiparous sows are usually associated with poor lactation performance and low weaning weight piglets. Live yeast supplementation have been shown to improve sow health status, milk composition, and growth performance of suckling piglets. However, little is known about the carryover effects of live yeast supplementation during gestation and lactation on primiparous sows and their offspring. In the present study[1], Live yeast supplementation significantly increased the serum concentrations of IgA and IgG of sows at farrowing and weaning stages, and of piglets at post-weaning. These results suggest that live yeast addition in the diets of gestating and lactating primiparous sows might improve the [...]

Effects of nucleotides in calves: the study performed with Ribofeed

2022-09-23T16:40:51+00:00June 22nd, 2022|

Oral administration of nucleotides in calves: Effects on oxidativestatus, immune response, and intestinal mucosa development. The study was performed on Ribofeed A recent publication from Bari University (Italy) published on Journal of Dairy Sciences has demonstrated the efficacy of Ribofeed, a product containing yeast nucleotides, in calves: effects on oxidative status, immune response and intestinal mucosa development. A total of 40 male Holstein Friesian calves were divided in 2 groups. All the calves were born and reared on the same commercial dairy farm. The nucleotides group (NG) was orally administered with 5 g/head of an additive containing hydrolyzed yeast (Ribofeed, Prosol SpA) once daily from birth to 25 d. In conclusion, Ribofeed administration increased the intestinal villi height and [...]

Use of a live yeast to Reduce Methane Production in Ruminants

2022-04-19T07:36:43+00:00March 18th, 2022|

Use of a live yeast to Reduce Methane Production in Ruminants Methane emissions from ruminant livestock contribute significantly to the large environmental footprint of agriculture. Ruminant production accounts for about 81% of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) from the livestock sector, 90% of which results from rumen microbial methanogenesis 1 . A considerable worldwide research effort has investigated various mitigation strategies and the ruminant farmers are putting in a lot of effort to improve the sustainability of their operations, with reduction of methane emissions (one of the most potent greenhouse gases) being a top priority. How methane is produced by Ruminants In ruminants, methane production is linked to fibre digestion: methanogens bacteria consume the hydrogen produced [...]

Heat Stress in dairy cows: how to preserve ruminants from heat stress damages

2021-10-14T15:21:19+00:00July 12th, 2021|

Heat Stress in dairy cows: how to preserve ruminants from heat stress damages Heat stress is one of the major problems can negatively impact the welfare and the health of ruminants in every part of world. Dairy cow thermal comfort range is between 5 and 25°c: with rising outdoor temperatures, a cow’s body temperature also rises. Heat stress comes when temperature and humidity are over the levels that the cows can tolerate, which can adversely mining both their welfare and production. A less DM intake, reduced rumen efficiency and decreased ruminal pH are some of the major problems associated with heat stress in dairy cows wich, ultimately, result to a decrease of milk production and quality, and increase sanitary [...]
