Improved stability with Vistacell

  • Vistacell is a live yeast product of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae variety
  • Dried in granular form, Vistacell has an outer shell that serves to protect an inner core of live yeast cells
  • This process serves to improve stability, making Vistacell one of the most active live yeast products commercially available

Vistacell in ruminant nutrition

  • Adding Vistacell to the ration can help increase rumen pH
  • This reduces the number of lactic-acid producing microbes whilst increasing the number and activity of fibre-digesting microbes
  • Improved fibre digestion and dry matter intake result in greater productivity

Case study: How Vistacell plays a key role in optimising rumen efficiency in the drive for high yields from forage


Vistacell acts as a probiotic to improve rumen and gut health by boosting the growth of beneficial rumen bacteria and improving rumen fermentation


For dairy and beef* farmers, Vistacell can provide an expected 4:1 return on investment

  • Up to 10% improvement in live weight gain (beef)
  • Increased forage and dry matter intake in early lactation
  • Reduced incidence of acidosis and sub-acute ruminal acidosis (SARA)
  • Increased feed efficiency
  • Improved dung consistency

In pig* nutrition Vistacell works to:

  • Improve intestinal gut health by stabilising the gut microflora
  • Increase the presence of beneficial bacteria
  • Live yeast has been proven to improve the nutrient composition of sow milk:
    • Higher immunoglobulin levels help to increase piglet immunity
    • Benefits both the sow and the suckling piglet, through improved piglet weight and reduced pre-weaning mortality
