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 to this problem is spray dried plasma (SDP).
Published data demonstrates plasma improves key performance measures when included in sow feeds during either lactation or gestation.
