Growth performance in growing-finishing pigs

Pig producers have a hard time - rising production costs and falling prices make optimal growth performance in growing-finishing pigs more important than ever. In addition, production results must be constantly adapted to consumer demands – residue-free meat of best quality, reduced environmental impact and improved animal welfare.

In order to achieve the full growth potential of grower-finisher pigs, they need optimal nutrient supply adjusted to their respective phase of life. Additionally, a good feed conversion and stress tolerance are necessary - to achieve target performance while promoting animal well-being.

The decisive factor: optimize cost per pound of gain

For a profitable swine production system, the decisive factor is the cost per pound of meat produced - the feed efficiency. During the grower-finisher stage, feed efficiency means obtaining highest growth rates and daily gain while keeping feed costs as low as possible.

A prerequisite for a high growth rate and thus cost savings, is a normal health status of the animal and a good digestibility and absorption of dietary nutrients. Due to an enhanced utilization and retention of dietary energy and protein the growth performance in grower-finishers is increased. This can save feed costs, shorten the finishing period and improve feed conversion ratio.
