Phytogenics – a win-win situation in 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 safe and natural solutions?
In pig farming, a high feed conversion means achieving the highest growth rates and daily profits 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. Phytogenics for pigs are a natural and effective 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 - stimulating feed intake during the critical post weaning phase is crucial to strengthen the development of a stable intestine. Similarly, increasing 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, besides an optimization of feed conversion ratio. Likewise, improved nutrient utilization is one key strategy for enhanced growth rate - and thus maximum profitability - for the fattening of growing-finishing pigs. Besides all these challenges, the minimization of environmental impact should be taken into account.
