High quality milk with the best ingredients for manual milk mixing and milk cup systems
Once piglets have received colostrum and are well into the habit of suckling, there are many benefits to be gained from supplementing the sow’s milk with a tasty milk replacer in the farrowing unit.
The sow’s milk is essential for healthy pigs, but the use of high quality milk and sound management makes it possible to reduce the number of nursing sows and boost the weaning process per sow.
Choose the right milk
Regardless of whether manually distributing milk or using a cup system, the milk used must suit the age and requirements of the piglets.
Substitutes for the sow’s own fat- and protein-rich milk have to be composed of ingredients that supplement the sow’s milk and ensure well-being and growth for the piglets.
