Feed Enzyme additive for dairy and grazing cattle
York Ag scientists designed our proprietary products BOVAZYME® and BOVAZYME® ORGANIC. These all-natural feed enzyme additives were conceived to help ruminants digest more efficiently. BOVAZYME contains 7 food-grade enzymes that help break down less accessible nutrients to make them more readily available for further microbial action. Ultimately, BOVAZYME helps enhance microbial growth and microbial protein utilization while supporting nutrient digestion in a natural way.
The unique formulation in BOVAZYME is made of defined enzymes. Defined enzymes are identified and quantified, eliminating batch-to-batch variability. These defined enzymes are separated from the fermentation material after production. Conversely, crude enzymes may not be separated from the fermentation material after production. This means that the fermentation material, yeast, and fungus (e.g. aspergillus) may remain in the final product. Therefore, typical crude enzymes lack accurate identification and quantification, causing potential batch-to-batch inconsistency.
Fiber and cellulose are difficult for beef and dairy cattle to digest. They can have difficulty digesting other nutrients as well. The enzymes in BOVAZYME make protein and fat digestion more efficient, and help facilitate the breakdown of less accessible carbohydrates, resulting in more profitable output with the same input.
Our team is ready to learn about your feed and livestock operation and share the benefits of BOVAZYME, our feed enzyme additive for dairy and grazing cattle.
WHAT DOES BOVAZYME DO?
- Targets Fiber and Cellulose breakdown
- Makes Protein and Fat Digestion more efficient
- Generates more profitable output with the same input
WHY ARE ENZYMES BENEFICIAL?
Enzymes are proteins that facilitate chemical reactions in biological systems, breaking down key nutrients to aid in digestion.
However, not all enzymes are created equal.
BOVAZYME® is made of 7 different DEFINED enzymes blended into a single package with a Guaranteed Analysis that assures consistency and quality from batch-to-batch:
- Alpha Amylase converts starch to simple sugars
- Cellulase converts cell wall fibers to simple sugars
- Hemicellulase converts cell wall fibers to simple sugars
- Protease converts proteins into amino acids and dipeptides
- Lipase converts fats into free fatty acids and glycerol
- Pectinase converts complex cell walls (pectins) to simple sugars
- Beta-Glucanase converts specific cell walls in wheat and barley to simple sugars
Feed Enzyme Additive for Dairy and Grazing Cattle
DEFINED VS. CRUDE ENZYMES
DEFINED ENZYMES (BOVAZYME®)
- Designed to make less digestible food and fiber more easily available to the animal
- Purified enzyme extract allows addition of exact quantity needed to accomplish nutritional goal and reduce waste
- Grown under carefully controlled fermentation to ensure no pathogens or “wild molds” are also growing
- Each enzyme is identified and quantified
- Consistent performance from batch-to-batch
- Enzymes in BOVAZYME are from human-grade suppliers
- No quantification or guaranteed analysis; thus, uncertainty of actual enzyme content
- No consistency from batch-to-batch
- Aspergillus organism (mold) may be present
- Less stringent quality standards
Defined enzymes to aid in digestion
BOVAZYME® ORGANIC offers the same high-quality, DEFINED enzymes found in BOVAZYME, yet it utilizes an organic carrier to meet strict requirements in organic animal feed manufacturing or organic animal operation.

BOVAZYME TRIAL IN MEXICAN DAIRY
BOVAZYME® was tested on dairy cows at a dairy facility in Mexico. The study showed a positive effect on milk production on those cows feed with BOVAZYME in comparison to the control group.
BOVAZYME TRIAL FOR BLOAT PREVENTION
Frothy bloat in cattle grazing hard red winter wheat is the major non-pathogenic cause of death in the southern Great Plains. This study showed BOVAZYME® helped decrease severity and duration of bloat.
BOVAZYME BRAND EVOLUTION
York Ag has commercialized BOVAZYME in the animal nutrition industry for more than two decades.
Our brand identity may evolve but our proprietary formulation remains exactly the same as we originally conceived it. Our original BOVAZYME® logo can still be found in feed labels from multiple feed manufacturers, so we share the new brand identity to easily identify our proprietary feed enzyme additive on current and new feed labels.
ORIGINAL BOVAZYME® LOGO
Original BOVAZYME logo in blue and white can still be found in multiple feed labels. If you are a feed manufacturer or livestock operator and need the most updated BOVAZYME logos, please contact our team and we'll be glad to share them with you.
Our new BOVAZYME logo created in 2020 may or may not include a badge with the silhouette of a cattle. Whether it is feed labels, guaranteed analysis or literature, contact our team if you'd like to update our logos on your documentation.
We created a simplified version of our new BOVAZYME logo that does not include a cattle badge. If you'd like to use our new brand identify in any of your feed labels, please send us a note and we'll be glad to assist you.
