Lallemand Animal Nutrition: Benefits of YELA PROSECURE as blood plasma substitute for pig nutrition




Lallemand Animal Nutrition's swine experts presented a new study at the BOKU Symposium Tierernährung 2024 — which was held in Austria — on the replacement of porcine blood plasma by yeast-based solution YELA PROSECURE in post-weaning piglet feed.


The product is a specifically designed hydrolysed yeast developed by Lallemand to offer highly digestible and functional nutrients that support animal performance, digestive care and feed palatability while contributing to the feed protein balance and to the total dietary fiber profile.


The study was conducted on 702 healthy, 24-day-old weaning piglets during the post-weaning phase. It showed the inclusion of the hydrolysed yeast at 3% — used as partial or total replacement of porcine blood plasma during the prestarter phase — helps piglets reach the same level of growth and feed efficiency over the whole post-weaning phase when compared to the piglets fed a diet including 4% porcine blood plasma.


In addition, the study showed reduced overall mortality, which helps improve the farm profitability.


The results obtained in the study highlight YELA PROSECURE as a promising solution to substitute blood plasma in weaning pigs' diets and mitigate feed costs while providing additional benefits by bringing fermentable dietary fibers to the diet, which contribute to a safer diet from a digestive standpoint, Lallemand said.
