APPLIED FEEDING OF LACTATING HYPER-PROLIFIC SOWS

Written by Thomas Sønderby Bruun, Senior Specialist, SEGES Danish Pig Research Centre, thsb@seges.dk Abstract The correct feeding strategy for the lacating sow is frequently discussed, and the aim of this article is to describe the latest research results and how they should be used to support nursing capacity, average daily litter gain and subsequent reproduction. A backfat thickness at farrowing of 16 – 19 mm is furthermore a prerequisite for a succesful farrowing and a high milk production. Recent research has shown that preweaning mortality is low, and that sows that are standardised with 14 medium to large piglets are …

IMPROVE PIGLET PERFORMANCE IN THE FARROWING PERIOD

Written by Christoph Hutter, Product Manager Feed Additives, ADDCON GmbH and Dr. Christian Lückstädt, Technical Director Feed, ADDCON GmbH. The successful rearing of many high-quality DanBred piglets is centred around the attentive management of the sows as well as the piglets. When working with new-born piglets, it is important to look at all factors that influence and determine their subsequent performance, as this can directly influence the success of the overall pig production. The piglets’ first contact with the outside environment is important, both for their future growth and health. One of the most common causes of piglet losses in …

MAXIMISING SOW PERFORMANCE IN LACTATION

Written by Christoph Hutter, Product Manager Feed Additives, ADDCON GmbH and Dr. Christian Lückstädt, Technical Director Feed, ADDCON GmbH. DanBred breeding sows deliver extraordinary reproductive results, therefore an attentive focus on feeding and body condition during lactation will lead to consistent reproductive performance and high lifetime productivity. Supporting sows with the regular use of potassium diformate (KDF) in lactation diets has been shown to improve the overall condition of sows as well as support immediate piglet growth and litter performance. The effect of organic acids in pig production has been examined world-wide, in particular the use of potassium diformate (KDF, …

OPTIMISING GUT HEALTH FOR SOW LONGEVITY USING ORGANIC ACIDS

Written by Christoph Hutter, Product Manager Feed Additives, ADDCON GmbH and Dr. Christian Lückstädt, Technical Director Feed, ADDCON GmbH. Gut health of the pig is today one of the most important things for the profitable pig production, and in particular the longevity and productivity of the highly productive DanBred sow. Gut health basically means a balance between good and bad microflora inside the intestine. If that balance goes in direction of increasing number of bad microflora (which is very possible due to excellent conditions for living and growth for pathogenic bacteria in intestine), the ideal health and production conditions can …
