Developed by Phileo by Lesaffre, Actisaf Sc 47 offers groundbreaking solutions for both dairy and beef production systems, thereby enhancing animal health and welfare, while minimising environmental impact

Being the first yeast probiotic to showcase strong ISO-compliant evidence of environmental benefits, Actisaf Sc 47 serves as a pioneering solution for farmers seeking to improve the sustainability of their dairy farming operations and sets a new standard in yeast probiotics feed supplements

A comprehensive Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) study was conducted by Phileo by Lesaffre in collaboration with Blonk consultants. Results from the study showed that incorporating Actisaf Sc 47 into dairy diets can lead to a reduction in carbon footprint by up to 5%, primarily due to enhanced feed efficiency. 

A separate LCA study on fattening period in beef was conducted in 2022. Results from the study demonstrated significant reductions in CO2 impact ranging from 3.8% to 6.6%, thereby highlighting Actisaf Sc 47’s efficacy in optimising feed efficiency and minimising environmental footprint in beef production systems.

As the agricultural sector evolves to meet global environmental challenges, Actisaf Sc 47 continues to drive positive change and foster a more sustainable future for farming communities worldwide.
