Our Products

We wouldn’t be where we are without our range of high quality, industry-leading feed additives that are backed by rigorous, peer-reviewed research:

Actisaf Sc 47 Live Yeast

Specifically created to withstand feed manufacturing processes, Actisaf optimises the rumen and hindgut environments to allow fibre-digesting microbes to flourish, improving feed efficiency and forage digestibility.  

Safmannan Premium Yeast Fraction

Safmannan is rich in mannans and beta-glucans, which stimulate and support immune function and bind to harmful pathogens such as E. coli, Salmonella and Clostridia.

SafWall Yeast Cell Wall

SafWall decreases the challenges posed by mycotoxins found in feed, which not only prevents illness and other negative impacts on livestock, but also enhances food safety for consumers.

Selsaf Organic Selenium

A highly bioavailable, natural source of organic selenium, SelSaf assimilates easily into animal proteins found in muscle, milk and eggs. This stimulates oxidant defences during periods of stress, improving immune and reproductive function, as well as animal performance and product quality.
