History of ISF Schaumann Research

ISF Schaumann Research was established in 1984 under the name of IS Research Society for Experimental Animal Nutrition and Animal Physiology. The company focused its research activities on the fields of nutrition physiology and animal nutrition, predominantly with regard to cattle, sheep, pigs and horses. From the start, its aim has been to improve animal health, fertility and performance.

BOVIN-S COMPLEX of active ingredients for mineral feed for cattle

1989

This supplement helps reduce liver stress and thus improves dairy cows’ metabolic efficiency, particularly in case of excess protein.

Use of phytase in monogastric animals

1993

Metabolism trials to investigate the function of phytase, an enzyme that supports the release of plant-based phosphorus.

ASS-CO FERM complex of active ingredients for mineral feed for cattle

1995

This combination of probiotics including living yeasts and additional active ingredients helps lower the pH level in the rumen and improves milk production and feed intake.

PROVITA LE – SCHAUMANN’s first probiotic

1997

This combination of two highly effective strains of lactic acid bacteria inhibits pathogenic microorganisms and boosts beneficial microflora in the intestinal tract of young calves.

Launch of BONSILAGE ensiling agents

2000

Research on the fermentation of lactic acid bacteria intensified following the acquisition of the LACTOSAN microbiological production facility in Kapfenberg, Austria.

Launch of the SCHAUMANN probiotic BONVITAL

2003

The live lactic acid bacteria supplied by this product build up a biological protective lining against pathogenic microorganisms in the intestines of pigs and poultry.

SILASIL ENERGY ensiling agent for biogas silages

2006

Selection of special lactic acid bacteria for energy crops.

Supply of trace elements for biogas plants

2007

Cooperative development of a requirements standard for the supply of trace elements to microorganisms in fermenters. Development of the foundations for the process, which is patented in Europe. Development of specific product lines and active ingredients.

CERAVITAL – Ferment product for pigs, poultry and calves

2011

Development of CERAVITAL, a protein-rich component for upgrading fodder and increasing the nutrient digestibility

AMINOTRACE - Organically bound trace elements

2012

Development of a unique production process for organically bound trace elements in cooperation with the University Clausthal-Zellerfeld. The result is a Aminotrace-Glycinate with highest bioavailability, superior performance and environmental sustainability

New laboratory and technology centre

2013

The ISF moves into a new equipped laboratory and technology center at Gut Hülsenberg. This obtains varied possibilities to research on active ingredients and products more intense.

ZELLPRO – the cell protection complex for dairy cows

2013

ZELLPRO is based on antioxidant substances and prevents oxidative stress. It strengthens the immune system, the risk of infection decreases and milk performance increases.

RUMIVITAL – for an improved feed efficiency

2014

RUMIVITAL is a highly effective ferment product for ruminants. It stimulates the digestion of vegetable fiber and starch fractions in grass-filled rations.

AKTIMAG for well-balanced animals

2015

AKTIMAG is a highly available, organically bound magnesium source which can reduce stress and nervousness of pigs, poultry and ruminants efficiently.

Stable intestine health with SCHAUMA STABIL SCHAUMA STABIL

combines monoglycerides, plant extracts, monobutryin and a prebiotic in order to achieve maximum prophylaxis on intestine health and resistance of pigs.

ACTIVE - accelerates the rate of biogas production

The secondary plant metabolites acts directly on the microbiological metabolism of the fermenter and reduces the metabolic pathways. The volume of biogas production accelerates.

Further developments of AMINOTRACE

2016

AMINOTRACE is supplemented by the innovative trace element lysinate copper bis-lysine and zinc bis-lysinate.

RUMIVITAL®i improves feed efficiency

RUMIVITAL®i stimulates the digestion of plant fiber and starch fractions in richer rations (conr emphasized) and increases their availability for the rumen microbes.

SCHAUMANN-SIXPIG – a manipulable lick mass for pigs

SCHAUMANN-SIXPIG consists of minerals, molasses and highly available organically bound magnesium Glycinate supporting the target of well-balanced animals

Development of BONSILAGE SPEED and FIT

2017

The BONSILAGE product range is extended by BONSILAGE SPEED and BONSILAGE FIT: BONSILAGE SPEED ensiles measurably faster. BONSILAGE FIT provides measurably more cow fitness

Development of the active ingredient MiZi

2018

MiZI, the micronized zincoxyde, a successful companion for piglets and calves.

Development of the probiotic CERABAC

2019

CERABAC, the probiotic for weaning piglets, inhibits pathogenic germs and stimulates the immune system.

Development of the algae active ingredient CERAGEL

The basis for CERAGEL is brown algae. CERAGEL binds toxins and increases the performance of weaners.

Further development of the fermentation product CERAVITAL

CERAVITAL XP is the next development of the proven innovative active ingredient CERAVITAL. CERAVITAL XP improves protein digestibility and makes more amino acids available for pigs.
