Phytogenics in pigs

Because less means more

Take up the challenge of profitable pig production

Modern swine production systems face the main challenge to reconcile both shifting the production performance to highest level while simultaneously guaranteeing animal health and welfare. Isn’t it in the interest of producers as well as consumers to obtain these goals at lowest production costs and with the help of plant-based solutions?

In pig farming, a high feed conversion means achieving the highest growth rates while keeping feed costs as low as possible. Improved feed efficiency and overall improved performance lead to higher profitability - the most important driver of pig production. Phytogenic feed additives are a plant-based nutritional tool to optimize pig production in terms of reducing feed costs, improving feed conversion and increasing productivity.

There is one common goal: a profitable pig production

Weaning in particular means stress for piglets - stimulation of feed intake during the critical post weaning phase is crucial to strengthen the development of a stable intestine. Similarly, enhancing feed intake and nutrient digestibility and thus boosting feed efficiency in sows and piglets is matter of concern and affects their reproductive performance and growth. Likewise, improved nutrient utilization is one key strategy for enhanced growth rate - and thus maximum profitability - for growing-finishing pigs. Besides all these challenges, the minimization of environmental impact should be taken into account.


Take on your PIG challenges

Pig production faces many challenges, mainly due to market pressure, environmental conditions and other constraints, which have a direct impact on pigs’ performance throughout their lives. Moreover, each phase of pig production has its own requirements: from maintaining the development of a healthy intestine in weaned pigs to improving growth performance in finishing pigs. Our effective phytogenics feed additives together with our Performizer® concept – is perfectly tailored to the needs of your pigs and your business.
