The Nutritech Heat Stress Pack has been specifically formulated to help reduce the effect of heat stress for grazing ruminants.

LevucellSC® has been proven to reduce the risk of rumen acidosis under heat stress conditions. Rumen pH and time below pH 5.8 is reduced significantly when Levucell®SC is fed. Levucell®SC also improves feed conversion efficiency and NDF digestibility which is essential when grazing heat stressed pastures.

Total antioxidant status is lower in the summer and summer heat increases damaging reactive oxygen metabolite substances. The additional Vitamin E, Alkosel® organic selenium and primary antioxidant enzyme Melofeed® provides a powerful antioxidant top up.

Fusion®DYAD* is a product designed to minimise the negative effects of feed borne mycotoxins which can increase significantly during warm spring and summer months. Fusion®DYAD* is a broad-spectrum mycotoxin binder which helps to reduce the risk of Aflatoxins, Fumonisins, Lolitrem-B, Ergot Alkaloids and Zearalenone. The pure form of Clinoptilolite and Mannan Oligosaccharides extracted from the cell walls of Saccharomyces cerevisiae provide dual-action, physical and chemical binding of a range of mycotoxins.

Mix through feed. Not water soluble


Do not exceed the recommended dose rate. Mycotoxin risk should also be reduced via appropriate management strategies (e.g. avoid feeding spoiled silage where possible). If currently feeding high rates of selenium consult your local Nutritech Area Manager, Nutritionist or Veterinarian before supplementing.
