One method often claimed for live yeast supplementation is the scouring of oxygen that can help promote anaerobic conditions in the rumen that will aid the growth and activity of beneficial rumen bacteria that drive forage digestion.
Another mechanism for adding cost effective yeast supplement is to stimulate the growth and activity of the feed microbiota through prebiotic bioactivity. The prebiotic approach differs from the live probiotic approach to dietary supplements.

Types of yeast additives
One of the main differences between yeast additives available in the market is whether the yeast is live or not. However, in the inanimate yeast, there are also various methods of breaking the yeast, and in some cases, the yeast cell wall material (bioactive prebiotic) becomes easier to obtain.
Autolysis: The standard autolytic breakdown of yeast cell contents provides functional components such as ß-glucans and cell wall compounds of mannan oligosaccharides, ribonucleic acid (RNA), nucleotides, amino acids, and peptides (amino acid form) in an ingested form.
This bioactive component serves as a food source for beneficial anaerobic microbes such as fiber digestion and cellulose bacteria.
It digests food that strengthens the ruminant diet and stimulates lactate-eating bacteria, thereby helping to avoid acidic conditions in the stomach. acute scarring acidosis (SARA).
Benefits of yeast products
Stimulating these beneficial bacteria can increase feed intake and the availability of energy, protein and other nutrients from these feeds. Animal health and performance benefits from a good rumen fermentation and condition are numerous
