Lactating Sow Feed Information
- This high-energy diet is designed for lactating sows
- It can be used from when the sows enter the farrowing facility, throughout lactation and weaning, and until re-mating
- Prior to farrowing, sows should be offered 3.0-3.5 kg per day
- On the day of farrowing, a small amount (0.5-1.0kg) is enough
- A steady, gradual step-up program over a minimum of five days to 6kg is encouraged, to ensure a long and successful lactation occurs
- Depending on the genetics, a maximum intake during lactation can range from 5 to 14kg per day
- This diet is designed to optimise reproductive performance and longevity
- This diet contains feed enzymes for enhanced nutrient availability
- It also contains broad spectrum mycotoxin binders for protection against mycotoxins, which may be present in feed, bedding or silos
- The vitamin and mineral premix contains organic minerals to enhance longevity and health
- The diet contains a laxative, to help avoid constipation and unnecessary stillbirths
- The diet also contains an acidifier for improved health
- During the summer months, (November through to March), the diet also contains an osmoregulator to assist the sows during periods of heat stress.
