Nucleotides are semi-essential nutrients normally produced by natural synthesis in the body. However, when animals are experiencing rapid growth, stress or disease, they are often not able to produce enough nucleotides. In this case, adding nucleotides to animal feed can improve productivity. They can be particularly effective in the first weeks after weaning, also resulting in a reduction of diarrhoea.
Moreover, nucleotides are known to enhance the immune system. Consequently, dietary nucleotides are a valuable tool for the livestock producer.
Ohly-GO® Nucleo is a yeast extract derived from primary cultivated baker’s yeast which contains high levels of readily available nucleotides. It is used in aquaculture and husbandry, as a replacement for antibiotic growth promoters, to improve feed conversion ratios.
Ohly-GO® Nucleo is typically added at up to 1kg/ton feed.*
