Livestock

Healthy sustainability from the factory gate.

Leiber Animal Feed develops and produces sustainable brewers’ yeast products that help you improve the health and productivity of your livestock in the long term. Our primary goals are to improve feed quality, feed intake and the well-being of your animals. We rely on the latest scientific findings and, of course, the expertise and commitment of our employees. Our customers can always rely on Leiber Animal Feed to adhere to the highest standards and the most stringent quality parameters, including in terms of animal welfare.

Leiber Animal Feed products are primarily designed to:

  • Stabilise the gastrointestinal tract,
  • Provide dietetic and prebiotic mechanisms of action and
  • Adsorb and inactivate harmful bacteria and mycotoxins.

 

All in all, Leiber stands for innovative products that support animal welfare and sustainable agricultural production.

Product range
There’s no waste. There are only recyclables.

Leiber Brewers’ Yeast – ‘new’ since 1954! Products change and new products are always being added. There are new markets, new requirements, framework conditions change… That’s all good! Leiber has grown steadily to meet these challenges and that’s probably precisely why it is now more successful than ever. Other things, however, have stayed the same… and that’s a good thing too: all Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products have always stood for healthy quality. The highest standards apply to brewers’ yeast, both during production in breweries and during refinement by Leiber itself. Long before sustainability became a buzzword, Leiber already lived by the maxim ‘There’s no such thing as waste; there are only valuable secondary streams’.

We are building our future on this solid foundation  – with an inquiring mind, passion for innovation and the latest product solutions.

Brewers’ yeast

Leiber Brewers’ Yeast is produced in breweries in compliance with strict food guidelines and is rich in many valuable, bioavailable active ingredients and nutrients. Only real brewers’ yeasts contain the polyphenols of hops, which are added during the brewing process. They produce additional antioxidant and bacteriostatic effects and thus complement the well-known beneficial nutritional properties of brewers’ yeast.

Brewers’ yeast fibre products

Leiber YeaFi® – almost a classic as a brand! Leiber YeaFi® products are unique combinations of brewers’ yeast and functional fibre carriers. The brewers’ yeast is sprayed onto the fibre carrier in liquid form and dried without contact. This gentle process protects the product from demixing after handling and transport, removes the hygroscopic properties of the brewers’ yeast and increases its palatability.

Autolysate

CeFi® pro combines in one product the positive effects of beta-glucans and mannan oligosaccharides from the cell wall with the natural components of the cell interior, peptides, free amino acids and nucleotides. This combination was only made possible by an autolysis process specially developed by Leiber for this purpose.

Mannan oligosaccharides (MOS)

Biolex® MB40 consists of cell walls of brewers’ yeast (100% Saccharomyces cerevisiae), obtained by centrifugation after biotechnological disruption of yeast cells. During this process, mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) and beta-glucans accumulate and specifically active segments of the cell wall

Beta glucans

Leiber® Beta-S consists of highly pure β-1,3-1,6-glucan molecules from the cell wall of brewers’ yeast (100% Saccharomyces cerevisiae). A particularly gentle process developed by Leiber releases the beta-glucans from the cell wall complex of brewers’ yeast. The native structure of the molecules and thus their biological activity are retained much better with this special process than in conventional methods.

Yeast extracts

In a process specially developed by Leiber, the soluble cell interior, the yeast extract, is released and gently separated from the yeast cell wall – so the individual components can develop their respective effects optimally.

Functions

Nature and science.

Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products – good in every way! In developing products for livestock and aquaculture, Leiber always focuses on promoting animal health. You can therefore be sure that Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products always have a positive effect on the animal, while representing added value for you at the same time.

Digestion

Digestion

With dietetic and prebiotic mechanisms of action and their concentration of valuable and highly bioavailable active ingredients and other ingredients, Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products sustainably support animals’ digestive processes.

Immune system

Immune system

Our highly purified beta-glucans offer an exceptional solution to boost animals’ immune systems and thus support their natural defences. Environmental conditions can’t be optimal all the time, meaning that pathogens or toxins, for example, can find places to attack – with corresponding detrimental effects on animals’ health. The consequences can be malaise, performance dips or serious disease. Supporting animals’ immune system is therefore the best protection against negative environmental impacts.

Leiber® Beta-S

Gut health

Gut health

The prebiotic ingredients in Leiber inactivated yeast products serve as a substrate for the intestinal microbiome, thus effectively influencing the animal’s digestive and absorption processes.
This is beneficial to gut health. Intestinal protection is active immune protection, because approx. 70% of immune cells are located in the lymphatic intestinal tissue (GALT – gut-associated lymphoid tissue).
The role of Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products in strengthening gut health is extremely important, since the digestive tract of animals is considered to be one of the main routes of infection.

Metabolism

Metabolism

Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products are not just a natural source of protein. They also contain a large number of valuable active ingredients and other ingredients that benefit the metabolism. In this way, they effectively help compensate for negative effects on the metabolism due to environmental or feeding-related influences, for example.

Fertility

Fertility

Leiber Brewers’ Yeast effectively supports animals’ resilience and fitness with a variety of valuable ingredients, for example biotin, glutathione, folic acid and niacin. That’s what makes them so important for reproduction, breeding and rearing success.

Performance

Performance

Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products support animals’ vitality, fitness and longevity and thus make relevant performance parameters like growth, feed conversion, milk production or body mass gain more effectively achievable.

Nutrients and active ingredients

Nutrients and active ingredients

Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products are more than just protein carriers. They are characterised by their high levels of bioactive ingredients like beta-glucans and mannan oligosaccharides in the cell walls and nutrients like free amino acids, vitamin B complexes, minerals and trace elements.

Leiber Bierhefe®, CeFi® pro, Leiber YeaFi®

Claws/hooves & skin/coat

Claws/hooves & skin/coat

The inactivated yeasts in Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products supply the skin’s metabolism naturally. In particular, the naturally high levels of biotin, folic acid and copper, combined with the positive influences on digestion, have a lasting beneficial effect on claw, hoof, coat and skin health.

Acceptance

Acceptance

The inactivated and autolysed yeasts and yeast extracts in Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products act as natural flavour enhancers. As a result, they not only perform nutritional and other special functions within the recipes, but also cause a sustained improvement in acceptance and feed intake.

Animal welfare

Animal welfare

As outlined in the introduction, animal welfare has always been at the heart of Leiber’s activities. There are both ethical and economic reasons for this: only animals with intact immune and digestive systems can grow in a healthy and sustainable way and develop their full potential. Healthy and fit animals require fewer drugs and veterinary treatments.
