Immunity

The immunity of your sow is gradually built up throughout her life cycle, and obtained either passively or actively. In the very same sense, she is responsible for passing on (passive immunity) adequate antibodies to her litters through her colostrum, to confer the greatest health advantage to her offspring.

Pre weaned Mortality

Several factors play a role when discussing your pre-weaning mortalities, among them efficiencies in the farrowing house. Adequate nutrition also plays a vital role, with the need for sufficient intakes for enough energy and protein to meet the young piglets needs. The development of a healthy gastro-intestinal tract is of paramount importance, and these products highlighted below have been specially formulated to take care of these needs of the piglet.

Colostrum Quality

Swine are somewhat differentiated from humans in the sense that no antibodies are transferred through the placenta to the unborn piglets. Therefore, the quantity, as well as the quality of the colostrum is critical to transfer antibodies (most importantly Immunoglobulin G or IgG). Generally, gilts produce lower concentrations of IgG’s, therefore care is especially important for them. Colostrum is furthermore a crucial source of energy for the survivability of the piglets, and if intake is above 200g per piglet, a survivability above 90% is attainable.

Milk yield
 

The plane of nutrition is very important to the modern day sow to ensure she has enough support to provide adequate quantities of milk for her litters. Feed intake is an important parameter to monitor to ensure she is receiving enough energy to meet her body demands. Any body weight losses in excess of 10kg during lactation are worrisome, as this will impact her reproductive ability further down the line. Our premix range has been designed to assist the sows from an immunity perspective, while aiding her ability to maintain a high level of reproductive performance in her future litters.

Fertility

The single most important aspect of any livestock operation is the simple ability to reproduce. Therefore, the fertility of your sows is critical to ensure future production goals can be met. Our experts have through research and results, developed a range of products designed to develop the corpus luteum after expulsion from the follicle. This body produces progesterone which is the hormone responsible for maintaining the gestation period.

Weaning weight

The first critical point in attaining good and uniform weaning weights among your piglets is ensuring sufficient colostrum is consumed by each piglet. Generally gilts do not have the capacity of older parity sows in the volume or quality, so care must be given within the farrowing house. The milk intake thereafter is an energy source for the piglet, and thereafter a supply of a well-balanced creep feed designed to meet the high demands of a young animals’ growth.

Mycotoxins

Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by moulds in times of stress, and they confer toxic carry over symptoms into your animals (all livestock species). Mycotoxins are almost impossible to eradicate as they proliferate in the raw materials used in livestock nutrition before, during and post-harvest. In addition, most mycotoxins work in a synergistic manner, resulting in more than one toxin present and acting at any one time. The need to bind and deactivate these toxins has resulted in the development of our toxin binder, which has the added benefit of an immune boosting function; resulting in benefits to the animals even when low levels of mycotoxins are present in the feed.

The quality of your animals claws is based on several variables, and a shortage or imbalance of key trace minerals may be a factor to some extent.
