Lactaid® is the UK's Next Generation Stabilised Yeast. It has been developed to consistently support the farmer to help achieve improved daily live-weight gain in beef cattle and help improve milk production in dairy cows.
Live yeasts are considered the First Generation of products but these are now less extensively used in the more advanced markets of the USA and Asia. Stabilised yeasts now dominate these markets thanks to their consistent levels of performance.
Lactaid® provides B vitamins, minerals, organic acids, enzymes, amino acids and peptides which directly feed the rumen bacteria. These are known as metabolites and are responsible for rapidly increasing rumen bacteria number and efficacy.
Lactaid® is a Next Generation Stabilised Yeast, designed to support microbial activity in the rumen by 'feeding' the good microbes to increase their numbers.
Extensive trail work has taken place to assess the impact of feeding Lactaid ®.
Unlike Live yeasts, Stabilised yeasts undergo fermentation under controlled conditions leading to increased quantity, quality and efficacy of metabolites.
Improved feed conversion often results in improved daily live weight gain (DLWG) in cattle and improved milk production in dairy cows.
Lactaid® should be added directly to the ration, either in a feeder wagon or 'top dressed' at a rate of 40g per animal.
Young/Growing stock (under 350 kilos) should receive 30g.
