It is well known that heat stress or disease stress during gestation and lactation reduces sow herd productivity and profitability. Lactating sows need a high feed intake to maintain their body condition and to support milk production.   When sows don’t eat enough feed, especially during stressful episodes can harm both sow and litter production.  One possible solution t ...

  Plasma is comprised of a complex mixture of functional proteins that have a profound, positive impact on animals. Consumed orally, functional proteins help the immune system to respond more quickly and efficiently. This helps animals to use their energy for productive functions instead of using it to fight the stressor. Plasma functional proteins help to minimize the effects of ...

Evonik has launched a new standardized ileal digestibility (SID) database for swine feeds which – for the first time – provides SID values of all amino acid for weaners, as well as for grower pigs. The new information means that feeds formulated specifically for weaners will no longer need to be based on digestibility data from growers – which should more closely meet requireme ...

  The gastrointestinal (GI) tract continues to undergo significant developmental changes in postnatal life. Environmental influences during this critical developmental period, including diet, stress and mucosal injury, have been shown to induce long-term changes in intestinal physiology and disease susceptibility in animal models(1 – 4). Similarly, in human subjects, increasing epidemi ...
