The company shows the results of the use of Hilyses® in supplementation of sows and piglets.
ICC Brazil, a pioneering company in the production of innovative, yeast-based solutions for animal nutrition, will be present at the 12º Simpósio Brasil Sul de Suinocultura - SBSS (12th Symposium of Pig Farming of Southern Brazil) to introduce Hilyses®, a source of nucleotides that helps to strengthen the immune system and promote better animal development. The event will take place in Chapecó, Santa Catarina, on August 6-8, and is one of the most important technical symposiums of pig farming in Latin America.
According to Alexandre Filipe, Southern Region Sales Manager, SBSS has been cementing itself as one of the reference events in pig farming, mainly in Southern Brazil. “In addition to being a great opportunity to discuss current topics and learn about new technologies from lectures and exhibitions, the symposium also allows the interaction with clients and friends,” says Filipe. Besides Alexandre, William Brodbeck – North and Northeast Manager – and Liliana Longo Borges – Animal Scientist and R&D Analyst – from ICC Brazil, will be at the event.
Solutions provided by ICC Brazil increase gains in animal productivity and welfare, assist in the control of pathogens and reduce carcass contamination, thus guaranteeing greater efficiency, profitability, and sustainability for the clients’ businesses. ICC Brazil will have a booth in the event to promote the use of Hilyses® in the supplementation of sows and piglets. “Hilyses® provides free nucleotides and nucleosides, specially designated for the development of piglets and also for the use in sows. One of its main benefits is the production of better-quality colostrum,” says Filipe.
Borges emphasizes that biotechnological studies prove the benefits. “We found that by supplementing sows’ diets with Hilyses® and transmitting nucleotides via colostrum, there is an improvement in the weight gain of piglets when weaned and a significant reduction in mortality.” She also notes that ICC has been investing in new research with pigs, demonstrating the benefits of their products.
