In recent years, pig farming has been characterized by minimal margins and a lot of social pressure. In order to still earn a good income despite the low yields, the technical results on a company must be excellent. This is achieved, among other things, when animal health is at a high level. The animal health of pigs thus forms the basis for a good operating result.
Animal health of pigs starts with the birth of the piglets. Not only the litter size but also the health and vitality of the sow and piglets must be given the highest priority. Nutrition and digestion play an important role in animal health in fattening pigs. Products such as organic acids are often used to optimize digestion, but the effectiveness of such products varies quite a bit in practice. Details also play an important role here.
Fertility is of great importance in sow farming and has a major influence on the operating result. Keeping the sow in good condition, with the right nutrition at every stage of life, ensures that a sow becomes pregnant again on time and produces good piglets. An optimal vitamin and mineral balance is also essential and requires an eye for detail.
Hygiene can not be forgotten throughout pig farming. Cleaning and keeping the stable and furnishings clean require attention. But the drinking water must also be clean and free from any form of pollution in order to keep animals healthy and perform optimally.
We think along about every detail, because It’s about details!
