VIANDI has been sourced in France and extensively trialled by the INRA (French State Agricultural Research Centre). In short the addition of VIANDI in our select rations will reduce the lactic acid in the rumen caused by rations rich in cereals. It also reduces the degradation of starch and so the energy from a ration is absorbed to better effect. It works best in high starch cereal feeds (lesser effect in feeds under 20% starch) and to date the best results have been seen in female lambs. Also carcasses supplemented with VIANDI got a better valorisation and firmness of fat than those not supplemented. A multitude of trials point to increases in average daily gain of between 7-13% and in the improvement of in food conversion of 5%.
