How to achieve healthy piglets which grow well
As a farmer you want to rear healthy piglets which grow well. You also strive for the highest possible return on investment. To achieve this two factors play a major role: A premium quality feed combined with optimal management in the first weeks of life. Afterwards, the strong piglets can switch to a conventional compound feed.

The importance of early feed intake
Each piglet goes through the same process of growth, but does so at its own pace, and in its own way. This depends on factors such as genetics, environment, management, etc. In the first weeks of life the health of piglets is fragile, its digestive system is immature and needs gradual exposure to different raw materials. This gradual exposure will facilitate the transition to a different diet and the problems around weaning.Therefore, it is essential to provide supplementary feeds next to sow milk. There are 5 reasons to do just that:
- 1. Learn to drink
- 2. Learn to eat
- 3. Learn to digest
- 4. Extra growth
- 5. Survival
