For Livestock and Poultry
Ingredients: Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast, ground yellow corn, hominy feed, corn gluten, wheat middlings, soybean meal, cane molasses, brewers dried yeast and brewers dried grains
For general feeding purposes, yeast should be mixed with ground grains and/ or commercial feeds and mashes, for all livestock and poultry, and fed dry in the usual way. General recommended amounts of yeast for optimum results:
Swine: Mix 50 lbs. of yeast per ton of sow gestation feed and 25 lbs. per ton in sow lactation rations. In pig starters, use 50 lbs. of yeast per ton and 25 lbs. in grower and finisher rations.
Dairy: Feed yeast at a rate of 4 ounces per head per day. Normally 25 lbs. per ton of grain mixture or 15 lbs. per complete feed will meet this level.
Beef Cattle: Feed 2-4 ounces of yeast per head per day mixed with the complete ration or supplement.
Sheep: Feed 1-2 ounces of yeast per head per day or mix 25 lbs. per ton of complete feed.
Poultry: In layer and breeder feeds, mix 25 lbs. of yeast per ton of complete feed. For broilers and growing turkeys, use 50 lbs. per ton in the starter ration and 10-25 lbs. per ton in grower and finisher feeds.
Horse: Feed 2-4 ounces of yeast per head per day by top dressing the daily feed or mix 50 lbs. per ton of grain mix.
Dogs and Mink: Mix 50 lbs. of yeast per ton of complete dog food. Mix 50 lbs. of yeast per ton for dry grain mix for mink. These recommendations are based on complete feed and grain mixtures. Supplements and concentrates require larger quantities of yeast as they are only a portion of the total feed intake. The amount of yeast should, therefore, be calculated proportionately.
