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 [...]

Biosprint® in Ruminants: new Marketing Sheet

2021-10-14T15:20:53+00:00April 30th, 2021|

Biosprint® in Ruminants: new Marketing Sheet Through an evident and incisive contribution to the digestive efficiency, Biosprint® is able to improve the production performance of the animals, preserving their general state of health. In ruminants it promotes the fermentation processes, adapting the rumen environment to the needs of the bacterial flora responsible for fiber digestion. The animals improve the capacity to use the energy of the feed and to assimilate the nutrients necessary for high productivity. Useful in challenging and stressful condition such as  transition and lactating phase, feed change, digestive problems, low Intake, heat stress. Would you like to know more about BIOSPRINT® in ruminants? Available the new Biosprint marketing sheet, fill in the form to download! [...]

Prosol receives EU Zootechnical authorizations renewals for its active yeast Biosprint®

Prosol receives EU Zootechnical authorizations renewals for its active yeast Biosprint® We are proud to announce the completion of three authorization renewals for the use in the European Union (EU). They concern the zootechnical feed additive Biosprint® (MUCL™39885), which received the authorization renewal for Dairy Cows, Horses, Sows and weaned piglets. All authorizations are valid for ten years. “We are very pleased with these achievements –Emanuela Epis, Product Manager at Prosol explains - Our best-known animal feeding solutions like Biosprint® are in the market for 25 years and we continue investing so to achieve the highest quality standards and confirm great performance by supporting several scientific trials.” PROSOL’s animal nutrition team is strongly committed to provide efficient solutions to the [...]

Heat stress in dairy cow: benefits from Biosprint® live yeast supplementation

2021-08-19T16:40:08+00:00June 10th, 2020|

Heat stress in dairy cow: benefits from Biosprint® live yeast supplementation BIOSPRINT® live yeast supplementation during the summer period helps lactating cows maintain their production parameters at optimum efficiency, preventing the negative effects of heat stress on their performance. During the summer months, milk production can drop from 10% to 30%, which is an economic problem for milk producers (St. Pierre et al., 2003). The reduction in milk production is not due just to a reduction in dry matter intake induced by an increase in body temperature, but also to an alteration in the endocrine profile and energy metabolism (Baumgard and Rhoads, 2007), and to other factors that are still unknown (Collier et al., 2008). It has been shown [...]
