THE SOW PHASES OUT ZINC FROM THE WEANING FEED

When zinc oxide in piglet feed is banned by June 2022, you need to find a solution that keeps diarrhoea at a minimum without using pharmacological Zinc Oxide above 150 ppm in the weaning feed.

One of the methods of zinc-free production is to improve the overall health of the piglet.

A healthy piglet is less susceptible to disease-causing bacteria like E. coli. However, other bacterias present in the sow faeces can cause diarrhoea. An example is during lactation, where the piglet risks contamination with Clostridium Perfringens from the sow, causing birth-diarrhoea.

A high degree of health has a preventive effect against infections from bacteria the piglet may encounter after weaning.

Healthy piglets are far easier (and much more fun) to care for.
