Alltech Farm Pak Feed Organic Farming Systems

Organic livestock farmers now have access to two market leading feed supplements in a convenient “straight feed” form following the acceptance of Yea-Sacc 1026 Farm Pak and Mycosorb Farm Pak as products that are permitted for use in organic farming systems. 

Manufactured by global animal health company Alltech, both Yea-Sacc and Mycosorb offer scope to enhance profitability in a wide range of livestock enterprises and will be particularly effective in improving performance in certain organic farming situations. Previously permitted for use in their more concentrated form only – as an integral part of a compound feed for example – both products are now available to organic livestock farmers directly from the Farm Pak bag.
Yea-Sacc 1026 is based on a specific strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast and works by stimulating the activity of beneficial rumen bacteria and stabilising the rumen environment. This produces improvements in dry matter intakes and fibre digestion, resulting in production benefits in terms of milk yield and growth rates.

Mycosorb will be of more specific interest to farmers with concerns about mycotoxins contamination of their feedstuffs. It is based on a patented yeast cell wall extract to which the commonly occurring mycotoxins bind in the gut, rendering them harmless to the animal.

Both Yea-Sacc and Mycosorb are used widely in conventional livestock farming systems in the UK and throughout the world.
