Lallemand portfolio gets the organic tick
Sep 08, 2021
Australian Certified Organic (ACO) has recognised 10 strain-specific microbials marketed by Lallemand Animal Nutrition as allowed inputs in organic food and fibre production systems.
Five products – AVIGUARD, LALFILM PRO, MANURE PRO, PROTERNATIVE and YANG – have been given unrestricted approval, while another five – ALKOSEL, ALKROM, BACTOCELL, MAGNIVA Classic and MAGNIVA Platinum – have restricted approval.*
Lallemand Animal Nutrition Managing Director – Australia, Alex Turney, says the certifications will help to meet the growing demand for natural alternatives to antibiotics used in intensive livestock production.
“These certifications give livestock producers and feed manufacturers access to a range of innovative and scientifically-proven solutions to support livestock health and performance,” he says.
“These products are already widely used in Europe and the USA.”
ALKOSEL* is whole-cell inactivated yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) that provides a rich source of bioavailable selenium, a natural antioxidant. Added to the rations of livestock, it supports immune function and fertility, particularly during times of physiological or environmental stress.
ALKROM* is an inactivated dried whole cell yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) that is enriched in the essential trace element chromium.
BACTOCELL* is a lactic acid bacteria (Pediococcus acidilactici MA 18/5M) that is authorised for use as a gut flora stabiliser in laying hens, broilers and other avian species.
MAGNIVA Platinum** is a ‘next generation’ forage inoculant that combines a patented bacterium strain, Lactobacillus hilgardii CNCM I-4785, with the industry standard, Lactobacillus buchneri NCIMB 40788. This unique combination provides fast-acting ‘front end’ fermentation with proven ‘back end’ aerobic stability, allowing silage to be opened earlier and last longer after opening.
MAGNIVA Classic** is a strain-specific forage inoculant that contains a high concentration of Pediococcus pentosaceus NCIMB 12455, a lactic acid-producing bacteria that dominates silage fermentation after four hours, in combination with Lactobacillus plantarum CNCM MA 18/5U.
AVIGUARD is a unique and natural starter culture that is derived from the gut bacteria of healthy, pathogen-free birds. Formulated as a water-dispersible powder, it is sprayed onto day-old chicks to promote the establishment of beneficial digestive microflora.
LALFILM PRO is a microbial complex that helps to form a favourable on the surfaces of livestock premises to minimise colonisation by undesirable pathogens. It contains a blend of strain-specific Bacillus spp. and lactic acid bacteria. The water-dispersible powder formulation is diluted and applied as a low pressure spray to internal surfaces, including floors, walls, ceilings, pens and feeders, before livestock enter the premises.
MANURE PRO is a unique enzymatic and bacterial treatment that promotes the development of beneficial microorganisms in livestock bedding, litter, manure and slurry, thereby improving bedding quality, reducing the emission of odorous gases and enhancing the nutrient value of manure. This water-dispersible powder is applied as a diluted spray to farm buildings, bedding/litter, manure heaps or slurry pits.
PROTERNATIVE is a strain-specific live yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae boulardii CNCM I-1079) that helps to maintain a balanced population of rumen microbes, rumen function and digestion in ruminants. It helps to reduce sickness during periods of metabolic challenge, such as weaning.
YANG is a unique combination of carefully-selective inactive yeast strains, including Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Cyberlindnera jadinii, that has been scientifically proven to support the digestive and immune functions in livestock. It was developed by Lallemand Animal Nutrition in partnership with leading research institutions throughout the world.
ACO, a non-profit subsidiary of Australian Organic Ltd, has previously recognised three other products marketed by Lallemand Animal Nutrition in Australia as allowed organic inputs, LEVUCELL SC, LEVUCELL SB and AGRIMOS.
LEVUCELL SC is a natural, strain-specific live yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-1077) that improves the health and performance of dairy and beef cattle. It is scientifically proven to improve rumen function, optimise rumen pH and improve fibre digestion.
LEVUCELL SB is a strain-specific live yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae boulardii CNCM I-1079) that enhances the intestinal microflora of monogastrics. Its uses include the reduction of carcase contamination by Salmonella spp. in broiler chickens and improving feed efficiency and reducing heat stress in pigs.
AGRIMOS is an enriched yeast derivative that contains a rich source of mannan-oligosaccharides, which help to maintain optimal balance of beneficial microflora in the gut and rumen and stimulate immune function. It is produced from Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
