Levucell® SC, Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-1077, is the only naturally occurring, rumen specific active dry yeast probiotic that has been selected to help optimize rumen function.
Levucell SC is a unique, research and farm proven microbial technology that is fully viable, metabolically active and functional across the wide range of rumen environments found in commercial practice.
Levucell SC, an active dry yeast, has received a functionality claim from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which states that supplementation with yeast can “aid in maintaining cellulolytic bacteria population in the rumen of animals fed greater than 50% concentrate.”1
Levucell SC Advantage is a ready-to-use formulation that also is easy-to-blend.
Levucell SC 20 is a highly concentrated product that is ideal for low inclusion applications (e.g. feed additive machines, vitamin mineral premixes, etc).
Levucell SC is available as a TITAN product, which is the patented micro-encapsulation technology that allows for the product to be pelletized and remain viable.

Lactating dairy cows:
Across multiple trials, cows supplemented with Levucell SC show an increase of 2.1 lbs of 3.5% fat-corrected milk (FCM) and had a great feed efficiency than control cows.2
