Performance and carcass characteristics of lambs fed diets supplemented with different levels of Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Abstract: The objective of this study was to evaluate the productive performance, apparent digestibility, and carcass and longissimus dorsi muscle characteristics of lambs fed diets supplemented with four levels of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Thirty-two male Hampshire lambs (25.82±1.95 kg body weight) were distributed in four treatments: basal diet (20:80, forage:concentrate), and the inclusion of 0, 3, 5, and 10 g animal −1 d −1 Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The variables evaluated were dry matter intake, daily weight gain, … Show more

“…Crude fat is important to ensure the flavor, aroma, and juiciness of the muscle ( 50 ). Increasing the portion of fat is a result of intramuscular fat deposition, which benefits marbling, carcass quality, and isensorial properties ( 47 ).…”

“…It is known that Saccharomyces cerevisiae cell walls have prebiotic action because they contain MOS and short-chain oligosaccharides, together with beta-glucans, in their structure (Xue et al, 2017;Gloria-Trujillo et al, 2022). Mannan-oligosaccharides are mannose-rich carbohydrates present in the outermost layer of yeast cell walls and are responsible for cell-to-cell and cell-to-environment interactions.…”
