Product description

jbs schweinehefe contains a highly concentrated probiotic live yeast that can be used in all areas of pig farming. The live yeast is protected by a special layer of inactive yeast, ensuring that its benefits will reach the intestine undiminished. Among other aspects, jbs schweinehefe stabilizes the intestinal flora, optimizes the intestinal nutrient absorption, reduces the sow's weight los during lactation and enhances the colostrum's amount and quality. In addition, jbs schweinehefe contains a special type of lignocellulose which increases the sense of satiety and diminishes the risk of constipation in the time close to birth. jbs schweinehefe additionally contains an anti-inflammatory seaweed meal which reduces mucosal irritations. Last but not least, it contains a mycotoxin binding agent consisting of binding bentonite and yeast cell walls. The mycotoxin binding agent binds mycotoxins and excrets them from the body without causing any harm.


jbs schweinehefe is applied as non-pelletized supplementary feedstuff using 10 kg per tonne of feed.

Areas of application:
sows, piglets (from before weaning up to a live weight of 30 kg), porkers

jbs schweinehefe may also be mixed into piglet feed for weaners. For sows, start feeding jbs schweinehefe at least 1 - 2 weeks before farrowing and continue up until the end of the suckling period.

Feeding trial – live yeast SC 47

jbs schweinehefe: effects of live yeast SC 47, colostrum and piglets plasm
Trial 1: Content of immunoglobulin in the colostrum

In a feeding trial conducted with live yeast SC 47 30 sows were divided into 3 groups of 10 sows each.
The first group constituted the control group, which was not fed with live yeast SC 47 over the course of this trial. In the second group, live yeast SC 47 was added to the concentrated feed during lactation. As to third group, however, live yeast SC 47 was added to the concentrated feed both during pregnancy and during lactation.

The greatest effects of live yeast SC 47 could be seen when examining the content of immunoglobulin in the colostrum, as well as in the blood plasm of the piglets on different days. The greatest effect could be seen in the third group (fed during pregnancy and lactation): those sows showed the highest content of immunoglobulin in the colostrum. Compared to the first group (control group) and the second group (fed during lactation only) the piglets showed the highest content of immunoglobulin in the blood plasm 24 hours after farrowing. The piglets in the third group also showed the highest content of immunoglobulin at the time of weaning (21 days).

jbs schweinehefe: occurrence of diarrhoea in suckling piglets
Trial 2: Occurrence of diarrhoea in suckling piglets

A field trial conducted with 165 sows studied the effects of live yeast SC 47 (mixed into the feed of pregnant and lactating sows) on the occurrence of diarrhoea in newborn piglets. The sows received 1 kg of live yeast SC 47 per tonne of feed over the course of 16 days before farrowing, as well as 10 g per sow per day as a top dressing over the course of 12 days before farrowing up to 7 days after littering. The occurrence of diarrhoea in the newborn piglets was more than cut in half when adding live yeast SC 47: It decreased from 10.4 % to 5.1 %.


Feeding live yeast SC 47 to sows during pregnancy and during lactation significantly increases the content of immunoglobulin in the colostrum. This ensures that the piglets are well supplied with immunoglobulin over the whole lactation period right up to weaning.

Diarrhoea is still one of the most common diseases in suckling piglets. Adding live yeast SC 47 to the sows' feed during pregnancy and lactation significantly reduces the occurrence of diarrhoea, thus contributing to diminishing the death rate of suckling piglets.
