INTRODUCTION Yeast derivatives (YD) are widely used in animal nutrition as natural additives. YD contain glucomannoproteins, betaglucans and nucleotides complex derived by acid hydrolysis of the cell wall of yeasts Saccharomyces cerevisiae. YD can bind and inhibit pathogen bacteria like Salmonella Spp, Clostridium Spp and E. Coli, therefore promoting growth of beneficial gut bacteria. YD have bee...

Hello Hasan, consistent results. I would like to add that the positive change in the microbiota of the matrices, can also also result in benefit in the microbiota of the piglets. This possible change contributes to the health and, consequently, the development of the piglets, improving the weight of litter at weaning.

Juarez Donzele great comments! If by trying to add germinative strains to the feed of sows at pre farrowing stage. Not spuruled.

Sorry, but I think we must consider the molecules, products, by-products generated by microbioma before indicate any benefic effect in performance in piglets or sows. The food animal industry must get an alliance with other scientist who are studing DNA or micro-arrays to offer a conclusion about any supplementation.

The work seemed interesting to me from all angles, but zootechnical and health highlight more because of the increase in the volume of production of colostrum and IgG, which would give us heavier and healthy piglets.
