One of the main effects of Yucca extract when it is administered in the diets of
ruminants is the reduction of the levels of ammonia in the rumen. Saponins have the ability
to inhibit the activity of ruminal protozoa. Free ammonia is produced in the rumen due to
degradation of protein from feed, not converted to urea nitrogenous fractions by the
microorganisms of the rumen.
Our product added to ruminant feed, increases the availability of nitrogen for the rumen
microbes and therefore, increases the synthesis of microbial protein, improving digestion
in the lower intestine and optimizes the levels of ammonia, reducing the metabolic process
of detoxification of urea-ammonia which is carried out in the liver.
On the other hand, the use of our products in feed increases the assurance of urea
supplementation reducing the possibility of ammonia toxicity. In addition, it increases
the nutritional value of urea, reducing the loss of nitrogen in normal excretory mechanisms.
