Improving feed conversion in piglets and sows

Delacon is proud of having developed this phytogenic feed additive for the special needs of piglets and sows, since it is the first EU approved phytogenic zootechnical feed additive. This means that highest independent authorities confirmed the improvements of FRESTA® F in terms of growth rate and feed efficiency of weaned piglets. This natural product stimulates appetite and feed conversion in piglets and sows – it improves digestion and supports development of the digestive tract of newborn piglets.



How does FRESTA® F work?

The natural ingredients of FRESTA® F have a holistic effect on the physiology of sows and piglets: Essential oils in FRESTA® F do not only positively affect feed intake due to their aromatic components, but along with flavonoids cause an enhancement of the animals’ anti-oxidant status by increasing enzyme production and positively influence inflammation processes. Moreover, mucilages support integrity of the intestinal epithelium and thus balancing the microbial population in the digestive tract. 


FRESTA® F is effective in overall swine production: It contributes to an optimized and profitable swine production by supporting piglets’ development through increasing their feed intake and daily gain and simultaneously improving feed conversion in piglets. Sows benefit from increased feed intake and milk production during lactation which ultimately improves litter performance.
