PigletPlus© proves to boost feed intake and growth during post-weaning

PigletPlus© proves to boost feed intake and growth during post-weaning

 Average daily weight gain post-weaning is directly related to the performance until slaughter

Last trial made with PigletPlus© in a commercial farm confirms the effectiveness of PigletPlus© on the productive parameters during the first 10 days post-weaning.  PigletPlus© is a combination of phyto-active ingredients and organic acids in premix powder.

During the test, both trial and control groups were located in the same house. Feed composition was the same for both groups, except for the trial group that was added PigletPlus©. All other conditions were the same for both groups.

The use of PigletPlus© resulted in a clear advantage in terms of weight gain, feed intake and FCR.

The most important parameter for the economical benefit of the farm is the average daily weight gain, which improved from 291 g (control group) to 384 g (with PigletPlus©). There are many studies that relate the average daily weight gain post-weaning to a faster growth during nursery and fattening period, a better FCR during fattening and to less days needed to reach slaughter weight.

The chart below, elaborated by M. Varley from data of Green Hill, 1999, shows the relationship between average daily weight gain post-weaning and the days needed to reach slaughter weight.
